Now that the rumors are out regarding iPhone 5, you might find yourself asking "What apple has instore for one of the worlds most popular phones?"
Well the following are just a few rumors going around regarding certian possible features on the iPhone 5.
First and most obvious rumor would be the A5 process chip, which might be expected, since currently sporting such feature is the iPad 2.
What A5 would mean to the iPhone 5. The A5 contains a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore CPU and a dual-core PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU. Apple lists the A5 to be clocked at 1 GHz on the iPad 2's technical specifications page, though it can dynamically adjust its frequency to save battery. It would be expected to provide the same advanced aspects to the iPhone 5.
The second widely spread rumor is the larger screen displayed. The rumors being spread is that the screen would be bigger,however I do believe this feature would be implemented since currently a wide range of mobile giants have been implementing such features. However I don't expect the screen display to be around 4".
Then we have the rumor regarding the iPhone 5 housing, which claims a full metal housing. Others claim the housing to be a liquidmetal housing. If you are not familiar with liquid metal then here is a bit of a definition regarding liquid metal. For starters Liquid metal is twice as strong as titanium and as bendable as plastic. With that in mind one can only imagine how resistant to dents and drops this feature might have.
Another rumored feature is video and picture quality. Certian websites and blogs have speculated a 7-8 megapixal camera to be implemented and a 5 megapixal front face camera to replace the current 1.3 megapixal it is currently sporting.
As more and more rumors are being spread about the current and future aspects on the new iPhone 5. I can only sit and wait for its release. Which is rumored to be ( June 2011 or mid-December)
