Bloomberg today reported Apple plans to introduce a new iPhone in September. The new generation is expected to equip with faster processor and more advanced camera.
According to the people familiar with the plan, as Bloomberg claimed, the next iPhone will come with A5 processor, the chip that is used in iPad 2. Apple will also boast the built-in camera from 5-megapixel to 8-megapixel.
What about the design? The report said the new iPhone will have the same form factor as the iPhone 4. One thing that is unarguably true is it’ll run on iOS 5, which has been demonstrated in WWDC held earlier.
As usual, there is no shortage of rumors around the web about the next generation of iPhone. BGR also confirmed Apple will announce a new iPhone in September but in contrast with Bloomberg’s report, it’ll come with a revamped design.
BGR has independently confirmed that the next-generation iPhone will not merely be an upgraded iPhone 4 as had been previously rumored. We have been told by a reliable source to expect a radical new case design for the upcoming iPhone, though we have not been given any additional details surrounding the design of the new iPhone case. What about a release, then? The consensus is that Apple is going to announce the next-generation iPhone at the company?s annual September event
ThisIsMyNext also reported that the new iPhone will come with a “teardrop” design.
Our source says the company is doing very ?interesting things? with bonded glass technology, and has been exploring designs where the earpiece and sensors are somehow behind the screen itself, making for a device where the display is actually edge-to-edge. Regardless, the sketch we?ve seen suggests the screen will go up to 3.7-inches while keeping the current resolution, and at that size, pixel density goes from 326 to 312 (a drop of 13ppi). That means that Apple can still tout Retina Display technology (the claim is that anything above 300ppi means the pixels aren?t distinguishable at 12 inches). Rumors have been suggesting that the size would bump up to 4 inches, but at that size with the current resolution, pixel density drops to 288, making it harder for Apple to use the RD branding.
