I have been following the recent news on iPhone and I think I can sum up the feature. You can decide if you want to wait or buy iPhone 4S
List of main iPhone 5 known features:
Bigger Display: No more 3.5 inch, we will probably have 4 inch screen. But recently I saw that they may ship with 3.89 inch screen. Don't know why the unsual size.
New Design: I am not a big fan of iPhone 4 and 4S design mainly because of the glass hardware. I wish they use metal this time. Soon after the launch of the iPhone 4S, reports emerged that Steve Jobs was working on a radical new design of the iPhone prior to his untimely death. This new design is said to be teardrop shaped and will be 8mm longer with an aluminium case.
More powerful: The new A5 dual-core processor inside the iPhone 4S was one of the major improvements made in the latest model. There are very few details so far emerging regarding the processor inside the iPhone 5. But it would be better than iPhone 4S
LTE: 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.
Other key features I collected about iPhone 5:
- 3.89 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
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!
The phone will be probably out by September or October 2012
