What Are The New Specs For The iPhone5
As with all of Apple’s new releases, rumours are abound as to what the new iPhone 5 may be like in terms of specs, and when the actual release date may be from retailers like http://www.dialaphone.co.uk.
The sense of anticipation and apprehension gives Apple a readymade marketing device with its legion of fans obsessing about whether it’ll be 4G, whether it’ll have an A6 processor or what the name of the phone will actually be, with ‘iPhone 5’ seeming to extend the version tag a shade too far if by analogy phones be named similar to films.
Using the name iPhone 5 prevents the need to release something along the lines of a smaller iPhone Nano due to older versions becoming the cheaper alternative for new buyers. New names and new versions are all possibilities though, and Apple are probably happy to let the rumour mill churn and thus create publicity.
The general consensus is that the iPhone 5 looks set to be released in October, although there have been claims made that it could come out this month. If we finish July without it emerging, expect an autumn release.
One of the most interesting rumours is that the iPhone 5 will have a 5 inch screen. This would give the name a natural marketing angle, and it would follow the trend for modern phones to have bigger screens in order to incorporate their tablet-like capabilities more suitably.
Rumours such as a tactile touchscreen and liquid metal instead of glass are two of the most intriguing but unsubstantiated reports. A tactile touchscreen would give the phone a whole new dimension, giving the iPhone 5 some actual onscreen texture.
These feats of technology are why Apple captures the imagination of so many. Rather than just being consumer gimmickry, an iPhone is a showcase for what’s new and ground-breaking in the world of technology.
