Will iPhone 5 see the Light of Day in 2012?
4” screens, dual-core A5/A6 processor, 8Mp camera… the list of features rumored to be included in the yet to be launched iPhone 5 are endless. The release of the marginally improved iPhone 4S failed to impress fans; they are now waiting impatiently for the iPhone 5. In fact, the hottest topic to be discussed across tech forums is the supposed launch of the next gen smart phone.
While some claim that Apple might be considering an April launch, there are others that claim to have known from ‘reliable sources’ that the D Day might be June 15th. The basis of this rumor lies in the fact that Apple’s Developers’ Expo is scheduled to be around June 10-15. Apple usually launches it products in March every year, but this seems unlikely considering the fact that the last iPhone release was in October 2011 and a new product launch within a gap of just 6 months wouldn’t give the company enough sales buffer. The rumor on a mid June release seems to be more probable, because Sprint too has announced plans to start their 4G services from mid-June.
Another rumor doing the rounds is that the iPhone 5 might be all set for an October launch. This also sounds probable because Apple would ideally love a year’s gap between two successive iPhone launches.
Meanwhile, Apple fans have come up with a series of features that they would like to see. Some popular requests include:
Redesign: The popular trend seems to indicate that people want to thinner curved body that would fit snugly in the hand.
Faster A6 Processor: A5 or A6; what would be the new processor? Fans are asking for a faster A6 processor that would pave the way for higher definition graphics and better performance in games and other apps.
Battery Life: Even the most ardent iPhone fan seems to go mum when asked about the phone’s battery performance. Fans would love to see a longer battery life, especially if Apple plans to introduce more battery draining features like Siri.
Stronger screen: There are plenty of videos on YouTube that are comparing the damage resistance of iPhone with that of the Gorilla glass mounted Android phones. A stronger glass screen would indeed be much appreciated.
The iPhone accessories industry too is working fulltime trying to guess its features. In fact, online retailers are already selling iPhone 5 covers and cases that are designed on the basis of the rumors about the size of the phone. These are sold alongside iPhone 4S covers and iPhone 4 cases.
