Rumour: iPhone 5 details leaked
Source: // By: Mudkip // Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011
Earlier today, reports from a few unknown sources have revealed rumoured features of the upcoming iPhone 5. They were released by the tech website iLounge, they claim their sources are inside Apple and were pretty close to Jobs. The next iPhone will reportedly have a bigger 4in screen as part of a major redesign, a move that had been resisted by late Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Another rumour is the body will be square-edged rather than rounded and it will have a super-fast 4G aerial. The phone body itself is likely to be just 8mm longer and to house a 10 megapixel camera.
The website said: "Our source says that the next-generation iPhone will not look like the teardrop-shaped version that was widely rumoured for release in 2011."
They also stated: "It is on track to be introduced in summer of 2012, and is still in the engineering phase, not early production. We suspect that poor battery life doomed the prior prototype version."
Britain does not currently have a 4G network, but the new protocol could begin to be put into place by next year - when the phone is expected to be released - providing much faster mobile broadband.
Here are a few images, these were from various different sources and they are the rumoured designs of the iPhone 5. Fake or not? You can decide.
I just recently bought the iPhone 4S, so this makes me rather irritated! From the information that was rumoured here, it doesn't seem to have many more major features than the 4S. Obviously it has a different design and a better camera, but nothing major, although, I am almost certain that there is more to be released, this information, I am looking forward to and hopefully it will make the iPhone worth the money it will be.
Thanks for reading, have a nice day,
