5 iPhone 5 Rumors   Leave a comment

In my last post I talked about rumors surrounding the upcoming iPad 3.  There are just as many rumors flying around regarding the iPhone 5.  Here are just some of them:

1.  Better camera.  The iPhone 5 is rumored to have an 8 megapixel camera.  The iPhone 4 comes equipped with only a 5 megapixel camera, so this is quite an improvement.

2.  Slimmer and lighter.  Apple is rumored to continue trying to make its products sleeker and lighter, and the iPhone 5 is no exception.  There are rumors of a complete redesign.

3.  Aluminum backing.  The iPhone 5 is rumored to come with aluminum backing, instead of the glass backing and the exterior antenna of the iPhone 4.  This may be a way of avoiding the well-publicized problems that the iPhone 4 had with reception due to its exterior antenna.

4.  No Home button.  Steve Jobs reportedly never wanted the iPhone to have any physical buttons, and his dream is rumored to have come true for the iPhone 5, which will reportedly lack a Home button.

5.  Qualcomm’s wireless chips.  The iPhone 5 is rumored to come equipped with Qualcomm’s wireless chips rather than with the current Infineon chips that most versions of the iPhone 4 are provided with.  A version of the iPhone 4 that is carried by Verizon currently uses Qualcomm’s wireless chips.

Whatever the new iPhone 5 looks like, Apple hopes to ship 25 million units by the end of the year.  The launch may occur as early as in September, and as late as in 2012.  Are you planning on getting the new iPhone 5 when it goes on sale?
