Latest iPhone 5 rumours. New Unibody Design.
This is a summary list of the latest iPhone 5 rumuors, as follows:
4 inches diagonal display. Actual size iPhone 4S 3.5 inches.
Steve Jobs brain child:
According to sources including Bloomberg and SlashGear, the legacy of the former Apple CEO may live on in the next iPhone. Jobs supposedly had a very heavy hand in the design of the iPhone 5 before passing away in October.
Has A New, 'Unibody' Design:
Business Insider quoted Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White, who reportedly toured the facilities of Apple tech suppliers in China, saying that the new iPhone will tout a "sleek look that we believe will require a Unibody case."
Apple’s MacBook Pro and MackBook Air line of notebooks come with a Unibody-like aluminum casing today.
Liquidmetal, a mix of metal alloys said to combine twice the strength of titanium with the processing efficiency of plastics, is used today in a range of medical, consumer, industrial and sporting goods products. According to Liquidmetal Technologies -- the Calif.-based company that pioneered and produces the substance -- this unique mix of metal alloys enhances both the performance and durability of a product.
Apple quietly acquired an IP license to use Liquidmetal Technologies' designs in 2010.
Packs The Processing Punch Of The iPad:
Specifically, it’s believed the new phone will run a variation of Apple’s homegrown A5X chip, which is faster than the lower-end A5 found in the iPhone 4S and acts as the powerhouse behind the new iPad’s Retina display.
It's also believed the new iPhone will feature 1GB of RAM, compared to the iPhone 4S' 512 MB.
The prior-generation iPhone 4S launched with only the 3G option, but Apple’s latest mobile gadget, the new iPad, is LTE-enabled, which seems to make this prospect a shoe-in.
Includes Near Field Communication:
Near Field Communication is the wireless technology that allows mobile devices to transfer information by placing them in close proximity to one another,
It also fuels Google Wallet, the mobile app that lets Google customers pay for things by tapping their mobile devices onto credit card machines in NFC-enabled retail locations.
Runs iOS 6:
Since the iPhone 5 isn’t expected to launch until fall, there’s a pretty good chance it would play host to the new platform.
There aren’t many rumours out there pointing to what new features, specifically, iOS 6 may bring to the table. But if Cupertino history repeats itself, there could be a lot of them. The introduction of iOS 5 unleashed 200 new tools for the iPhone, including the Notification Center and iMessage.
10MP camera, A6 quad-core processor and, of course, a Retina Display.
