    iPhone 5 new processor and cameras confirmed

    Apple’s next-generation iPhone is set to feature a new processor in the A5 range, along with a high-definition front-facing camera, sources abreast of matters have claimed.

    According to an unnamed tipster cited by 9to5Mac, the handset unofficially dubbed iPhone 5 will pack an ARM_S5L8950X chipset. The processor was previously thought to be a part of the A6 family, but now appears to be in a similar class to the A5X variant that featured on the ‘new iPad’.

    It’s unclear exactly what sort of brawn the processor will pack, but going by the A5X, we’re thinking it’ll be at least a 1GHz dual core number, possibly with a more energy-efficient 32nm manufacturing process.

    What we do know, though, is that it will come with 1GB of RAM on board and sport an SGX543RC* GPU (the asterisk represents a secret internal character to protect the source’s identity), again developed by Imagination Technologies.

    Meanwhile, KGI analyst Mingchi Kuo claims the Cupertino giant will make “quite a few essential adjustments” to the next iPhone, including a move to a flip-chip (FC) front-facing camera with an HD resolution and a higher aperture range of f/2.2.

    Although the rear-mounted camera will reportedly stay at its current eight-megapixel res, it’ll have a compact camera module (CCM) measuring 5.55 and a through-the-lens (TTL) metering of 4mm, down from 6mm and 4.88 respectively on the iPhone 4S.

    Kuo says it will be “the most challenging iPhone design yet”, which has previously been rumoured to boast a thinner body of close to 8mm and a larger four-inch display with in-cell panel technology. Changing The Face of The Game!

    iPhone 5 will 'put Samsung Galaxy S3 to shame,' says Foxxcon CEO
    Posted 21st June 2012 at 11:37am by Jonathan Leggett

    The next-gen iPhone will make its nearest Android rival, the Samsung Galaxy S3, look positively sub-par and herald a new era of dominance for the Californian tech giant, the head of Apple’s main manufacturing partner has claimed.

    Addressing shareholders at the Foxconn AGM, CEO Terry Gou predicted that the handset very unofficially dubbed the iPhone 5 “will put the Galaxy S3 to shame”.

    Unfortunately, our bullish friend didn’t tell us why it’s going to be such a world-beater. But he did explain that at least part of what he perceives will be Apple’s competitive advantage in years to come will be its deal with Sharp to supply screens for future iDevices.

    This arrangement and the access it provides to innovative, game-changing screen technology will purportedly give Foxconn a three-year lead over Samsung, Gou claims.

    Apple is expected to lift the lid on its sixth smartphone in September or October. As well as a radically redesigned shell, the handset is expected to feature a quad-core processor, a larger screen of around four inches and 4G network support in select territories.

    Last week, the shiny gadget-purveyor showcased the operating system that will likely power the iPhone 5. Dubbed iOS 6, the latest iteration of Apple’s software adds an improved version of the Siri voice commands app and a proprietary mapping solution set to replace Google Maps.

    Slimmer screen for Apple’s next iPhone–report

    Slimmer screen for Apple’s next iPhone–report
    Agence France-Presse
    5:53 pm | Tuesday, July 17th, 2012
    Hong Kong – Apple is expected to unveil a new iPhone later this year with a slimmer screen thanks to updated touch-screen technology, a report said Tuesday.
    The next generation iPhone, referred to by fans as the “iPhone 5″, is being manufactured by Asian component makers, Dow Jones Newswires quoted unnamed sources as saying.
    Its panels will use “in-cell technology” integrating touch sensors into the LCD, it said.
    That makes a separate touch-screen layer unnecessary and reduces the screen thickness by about half a millimeter, Dow Jones quoted DisplaySearch analyst Hiroshi Hayase as saying.
    The new technology will also boost displayed image quality, and help Apple cut costs as it would no longer have to buy touch panels and LCDs from separate suppliers, the report added.
    It said Japanese liquid crystal display makers Sharp and Japan Display Inc as well as South Korea’s LG Display Co were currently mass producing panels for the next iPhone.
    Apple is widely expected to launch the device in the third quarter of this year, around 12 months after the release of its hugely popular iPhone 4S — the firm’s first new product following the death of co-founder Steve Jobs.
    An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment on the report or the next iPhone’s release date when contacted by AFP.
    The report came amid heated competition from rivals such as Samsung, whose flagship smartphone the Galaxy S III uses a 4.8-inch (12.2 centimeter) screen that is thinner than the current iPhone.
    Apple posted a $11.6 billion profit in the first three months this year, led by record sales of iPad tablet computers and iPhones — the latter surging 88 percent year-on-year. Changing The Face of The Game!

    The iPhone 5 - Coming September of 2012 (4G)

    The all new iPhone 5 is already buzzing with speculation. Will the new iPhone 5 be a complete redesign? Yes! Korea's IT News reported that the iPhone 5 is likely to be housed in "Liquidmetal". Liquid metal is the industrial name for an alloy of nickel, titanium, zirconium, copper and other metals. Apple was granted rights to use it in August of 2010. The current Apple iPhone release wasn't much to rave about, although people do really like Siri, the personal assistant. However, the new iPhone 5 is going to have some amazing new hardware and features like 3D video and pictures, newly designed keyboards and 4G speeds to name a few! This is made possible by the new A6 processor which will also be featured in the iPad 3.

    This phone is going to be loaded with awesome new features like video chat on 3g and 4g (no longer restricted to WiFi only), face recognition and extreme downloading with 4G. (List of possible features below). The new iPhone 5 features are speculated, but have been well received by the public and will typically follow suit based on previous releases and their features.

    Like the recently release iPad 3, this new iPhone 5 will be equipped with a dual core A5X chip processors, much like the iPhone 4s (A5) and higher more powerful graphic chips that can deliver higher video resolutions (5-9 times better and 7 times faster) and amazing "still" images when taking pictures, AND it will make multi-tasking a lot faster, in addition to adding support for 4G speeds. There is a possibility it could contain the new A6 processor instead, boosting it above the iPad 3. It will also have a 4 inch screen (corner to corner) making it larger and on par with most android phones.

    The processor will have speeds at 1.5 - 2.0 GHz and 1GB of RAM. Obviously the new iPhone 5 will have the new iOS6 software, iCloud and all the standard features of the iPhone 4S, including Siri, the personal assistant. These improvements alone will be healthy competition for the newly released Samsung Galaxy S II and the Google Nexus phone.

    Apple recently filed several patent applications in order to bring 3D picture capturing to the iPhone 5. This phone will be capable of rendering, capturing and processing 3D images, which coincides with the recent changes to the dual-camera hardware. The new iPhone 5 will also be capable of taking pictures in Panorama!

    The new iPhone 5 will boast 4G also known as LTE - Long Term Evolution technology according to AT&T which is due to the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) which is in line with the most recent technology standards for mobile networks.

    The down side. The new iPhone 5 is going to have a new, smaller dock connector. It will come with a 19-pin connecter instead of the usual 30-pin connecter which is currently how the iPhone and iPad are designed. What does this mean? New car chargers, new iHome docking stations, new portable speakers that your current iPhone can plug right in to. While this is very frustrating, it will make the new iPhone 5 thinner and with a lot more screen.

    Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S, a faster version of its best-selling smartphone that includes a virtual "personal assistant" you can talk to. And now, Apple will release the new iPhone 5, which looks promising in terms of being sleek, packed with new hardware and finally less restrictions. Very exciting! We will update our information as soon as we learn more about the newest features of the new iPhone 5, as more information comes in daily. Again, this phone is going to be a complete redesign so there is still a lot to learn about this device. Check it out ....

    A few features of the new iPhone 5:

    4 inch screen

    All new Liquid Metal design - smooth like liquid

    Thinner sleeker design

    Built in GPS standard

    Face Recognition Security

    Face Time on 3G and 4G

    Custom SMS tones

    Custom E-mail alerts with ability to assign different tones to each email address

    Shatter resistant Gorilla glass

    8 MEGAPIXEL Camera rear and 5 in front

    64G Basic and 120G memory

    Extended battery life = 20 hours talk time on 3G and 10 hours on 4G. Standby 1000 hours.

    Full 1080p HD Recording AND 3D Video Display !!!

    Messaging indicator light

    HTML5 (safari) or apps to make Flash Player capable through apps

    SIM-Less Phone - The new iPhone 5 will be a World Phone. This is accomplished building 2 to 3 internal antennas which makes it capable of GSM and CDMA technology, so you can take the phone to any network!
