The numerous speculations and rumor mills about the iPhone 5 have been going around for quite a while now, from the look of the phone, the upgrades, design changes to its release date. Many even suspect whether the sixth member of the iPhone family would even be called iPhone 5! There have been plenty scattered leaks although none from the core Apple team. Recent news flash tells us that September 12th is the date set to announce the release date.
The iPhone 5–An Evolutionary Step-Up
The iPhone 5 is expected to be a radical upgrade from the iPhone 4S. Design wise the phone may display a bigger picture with probable screen size popularly predicted to be up to 4 inches. The back plate may go two-tone with the elongated size although the phone is also said to hit the record in being the slimmest smartphone on the markets once released.
With plenty of mock-ups appearing from all over the place, a consensus can be achieved of a major redesign. This would mostly involve the dock connection getting smaller which are supported by hardware leaks like those related to new set of USB cables with smaller 8-pin connectors. This would also make space for the 3.5mm headphone jack at the base. The butterfly effect of such redesign can be expected to lead to high quality iPhone 5 accessories.
Further speculations by multiple sources also converge on areas such as the new iPhone’s processing power going for a quad-core first and about 1 GB RAM which does sound like Apple. Internally it is also likely that they upgraded the efficiency of their chipsets for delivering better battery life. For it will definitely be required considering the probability of an HD front-facing camera! Moreover since the new iPad brought along 4G, it’s only natural to expect the same from the new phone.
Considering the pricing trends by Apple, the phone is likely to be priced in the same range as the others although a higher capacity such as 128 GB might be made available resulting in a higher price. Surely the price won’t be the sole determinant of the real value of this phone which will call for protective additions like screen protectors, faceplates and stylish iPhone 5 covers from CellphoneAccents ensuring classic detailing, clean lines and four-corner protection.
Will it be Revolutionary?
There have been muffled talks about Apple heading for a liquidmetal armature bringing forth a superlative premium consumer product. Don’t be surprised to find these clad in the designer iPhone 5 cases from CellphoneAccents.
Yet another speculation points at the inclusion of NFC (near field communication) that will revolutionize mobile payments. Basically the phone will also work as the credit/debit card. Although NFC being a definite future may not mean being available in the new iPhone.
