We are miles away from the release of next Apple smartphone, but still we’re getting some juice rumors regarding the iPhone 5 in a regular interval. We just got news regarding the next iPhone from “Reuters” which is hard to believe. The international news agency is reported that, Apple Inc’s next iPhone will be coming with a sharper and bigger 4.6-inch “Retina” display and also quoted that it’s set to be released around the second quarter of this year, which is originally reported by a South Korean Maeil Business newspaper on Thursday.
Obviously it’s exciting to here news something like this regarding one of the most popular smartphone, but we can say it’s a pure rumor and sorry to say there are lot of doubts in my mind regarding it reality. Doubt in my mind because, a company as large and loyal as the one Apple can go for a drastic change like this. Can they switch its display size from a 3.5-inch to a 4.6-inch? Even more its major display suppliers LG Display and Samsung Electronics Co declined to comment.
But the reason behind we believe in it, Apple is also planning to change screen sizes for its tablets and laptops. In case you don’t know there was also news that, Apple is planning to release a smaller 7.85-inch iPad (current iPad have 9.7-inch screen) by the end of the year. Furthermore the company is also planning to release a 15-inch MacBook Air recently and wait also a 14-inch MacBook Air too (current MacBook Air have 11.6” & 13.3” screen). Well this is not the end, it also comes to know that they are preparing a notebook of that size to its line of super-slim computers.
It’s really surprise to hear, Apple will be releasing its next iPhone sometime in Q2 i.e. merely 9 months after the 4S announced. Even more the Holiday quarter release turned out to be very good for the iPhone 4S that scored record sales. But it seems quite impossible for a typical company like Apple, how they would kill their product within a very short of period by unveiling its successor in Q2.
It also comes to know that, the company is intent on creating a “nano-SIM” for the next iPhone. There are few other features comes around with rumor; it will support 4G LTE connectivity, powered by a quad-core A6 chip that expected to clock at around 1.2 to 1.5 GHz, it probably run on iOS v6.0, and more it also support NFC technology too.
If the rumor would true then the next iPhone will be a real headache for Samsung, which is currently turning out be a tough challenger to Apple in smartphones. They have lot of smartphone with 4.6-inch display e.g. its flagship Galaxy S II and they are also coming soon with its successor Galaxy S III. I’m really felling bad that I’m not pretty sure about the rumor regarding features, shape, size, technology and other about the iPhone 5.
