I know, I know, theyâ€™re just rumors. Even so, itâ€™s cool to look at the rumored spec sheet of the long awaited device and slobber all over the place, because, well, thatâ€™s what tech people do. Whatâ€™s funny is that most of time, these rumors are fairly accurate.
The rumors that were circulating around the new iPad turned out to be pretty accurate, so itâ€™s safe to say that the community has a pretty solid idea of what the big Apple is up to with new products. Obviously, nobody can predict the curveballs that the company throws out like Siri, but we can get a solid idea of how the internals will look.
Here are some of the features that rumored to appear in the iPhone 5:
- Â 4.0-inch screenÂ Not really that much bigger than the 3.5-inch screen found on the iPhone 4S, but anything is better than 3.5 inches. The 3.5-inch screen on the current crop of iPhones is just puny in comparison to the competition, so while a 4.0-inch screen certainly helps, it would be nice to see a 4.5-inch screen on the new iPhone.With a 4.0-inch screen, it clues us in on how the form will be. Other than ditching the home button, we may also see a solid glass face to get rid of the wasted bezel.
- Â Greater Screen ResolutionÂ The current iPhone has a resolution that is still being challenged, but what better way to beat the competition by offering even better resolution? With an increase in UI size and screen, this will make video viewing and picture viewing a masterful experience.
- A Quad-Core Processor?Â Since the new iPad only shipped with a dual-core processor and a new quad-core GPU, itâ€™s possible that we may see a similar thing in the new iPhone. But if Apple can push out a quad-core processor to go along with a quad-core GPU, the iPhone 5 will be at the top of its game for years to come, which I believe they should be aiming for. By future-proofing the new iPhone, theyâ€™ll quell the naysayers who believe the phone is underpowered right now. Besides, dual-core processors will be phased out with more quad-core processors coming out, so it only makes sense to go with four cores.
- Wireless ChargingÂ The HP Touchpad introduced this innovative way to charge the device awhile ago, so it could makes sense that Apple would push this â€śnewâ€ť and wonderful thing for users looking for the next modern device.
- 4G or LTEÂ Iâ€™m 99.9999 percent positive that the new iPhone 5 will have 4G capabilities. Actually, let me correct myself by saying that Iâ€™m 100 percent positive that it will have 4G speeds. Itâ€™s also probable that the phone will ship with an LTE radio for US users. International users will probably be using HSPA+ speeds still, because they do not have LTE as readily available as the US.
Again, these are only rumors, but like I said before, rumors are somehow correct a lot of the time. While there are a ton of other rumors about the iPhone 5, these stand out as the ones we are most excited to see.
