Where is iPhone 5?
Will it be this year?
So will we see the long awaited iPhone 5 in 2012? Did the Mayan's predict the end of the world in 2012? Ok, your guess is as good as mine when it comes to the Mayan's prediction. However, it is more probable that the iPhone 5 with all it's hype in tow will be more more than likely be available this June!
It is rumored that the late Steve Jobs was working on 'something special' for the iPhone 5. Could it be a totally new design? Possibly. Here are just a few rumors going around about the soon coming iPhone 5.
- the iPhone 5 will feature a larger, 4-inch screen.
- the iPhone 5 could feature a curved glass screen.
- he new iPhone 5 would come sporting a larger 4.6-inch retina display
- the next iPhone will use new touch technology and will be encased in something called "liquidmetal." Sounds like something out of Terminator 2 but don't worry, you're iphone won't try to take you out the game. It's smart but even if your name is Sarah Connor, I'm sure you'll be safe.
Ok, so all that sounds cool. But have you heard of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology that will turn your iPhone into a kind of credit/debit card. Well, it turns out that a well-connected developer disclosed information received from Apple iOS engineers saying they are "heavily into NFC". The unnamed developer is working on a dedicated iOS app which includes NFC reading for mobile transactions. And with an Apple patent filing in late April, it only reinforces the NFC idea will be available in iPhone 5.
After the launch of the new iPad which featured 4G/LTE, it should come as no surprise if the new iPhone 5 will feature 4G/LTE technology. Expect an upgrade in the iPhone's camera as well with a possible 8MP to boast.
Regarding price, most tend to think that the iPhone 5 price tag will be similar to the iPhone 4S.
Although we can't be 100% sure, and after going through many techie sites and blogs, I'll wager to say that June 2012 will be the month of the iPhone 5.
