Today we have a report that the iPhone 5 is to have only slight changes, and ready for mass production in September.
The report is from Neil Hughes of AppleInsider in an article that the next iPhone will have only “slight modifications” over the iPhone 4. Part of these changes includes an 8 Megapixel camera and a Qualcomm baseband for both CDMA and GSM models.
Furthermore, Ming Chi Kuo an analyst from Concord Securities offered details of the next iPhone. Accordingly, the iPhone will have details of the faster A5 chip and an improved antenna design.
Kuo has been told by his sources that the new handset will start a trial production during August, before going into full production in September. This runs with reports before that the iPhone 5 may not be launched before the start of Apple’s next financial year.
The analyst has correctly predicted in the past features of Apple products, including the iPad 2 would have the same display as the original. He had also said last month that production of the white iPhone 4 would start, and then we recently had reports the device was set to be released.
Given this report, I think Apple has got a lot of our patience to wait for the release of the next generation of iPhone. Although it may seem to take some time, I just hope that our expectation on this handset will go way beyond or at least be exact.
So, what do you think of this recent update on iPhone 5?
