It seems that the better devices get, the more demanding consumers become. Barely a week has passed since the release of the new iPad, and yet already it seems much of the blogosphere is focusing its attention on the next Apple iPhone (dubbed as iPhone 5).
Like always, Apple rumour mill never stops turning, but some tidbits are coalescing into a more concrete vision for the next iPhone. Though quite obvious, it would seem a certainty that iPhone 5 will have LTE support, likely with a newer 28nm Qualcomm baseband chip, the MDM9615.
In past, rumors were floating around that Apple could switch to a much larger 4.6-inch Retina display for its next-generation iPhone. However, those claims were largely dismissed by Apple watchers who noted that a dramatic shift in screen size could present complications for developers who write software for the current 3.5-inch Retina display. But one thing in rumor is floating for sure is that, the screen would be Retina quality and manufactured by Samsung and LG.
Surveys have suggested users would appreciate a smaller screen on the next iPhone 5. If Apple would consider something up to only 3.5 inch. That said, the points figure out that, at 960×640, a 4-inch screen would be 288 ppi, and a 3.75-inch screen would be 307 ppi, then 3.5 inch screen must go with 345 ppi.
However, within found out iOS 5.1 in upcoming iPhone chip, gave us as sure an indication of a 4G iPhone as we could get without actually hearing it from Apple officially.
The other features, the reliable sources close to Apple, have been discussing for the model is a new, smaller dock, rather than the 30-pin connector we’re used to.
The release timing most discussed is spring or Worldwide Developers Conference in June for an announcement, while the launch schedule is on time for a fall release. This is the usual release cycle for Apple and most of the other iPhones have followed this cycle more or less closely.
We want to ask you guys. Would you like to see a larger screen on the next iPhone?
