The first iPhone was unveiled by Steve Jobs, then CEO of Apple, on January 9, 2007, and released on June 29, 2007. Since its release, it completely changed the world unexpectly. No one can image one phone can be so smart, so easy to handle, can beat the largest phone producer Nokia. iPhone did it! All apple funs searched any information of iPhone from web, magzine, they wait a whole day at the Apple shop just for buying a phone! Incredible!
Then Apple released its later generation, iphone 2, iphone 3, iphone 4. Each phone makes great success. Although widely expected, there was no iPhone 5 in 2011 after all, though the company did announce the iPhone 4S, Steve Jobs fools all the world. Many magizines, webs believe this has broken the love of iPhone Funs, and this phone should not be sucessful. At this time, the king of Apple, father of iPhone, Steve Jobs left the world, with no direct answer to this question. But iPhone 4s is still the most popular phone in the year, though it indeed make so little changes on the base of iPhone 4.
Now one year past, Samsung published its great product Galaxy 1,2 3, and especially Galaxy 3, it used the higest configration, and powerful advertisement, it’s almost the most popular phone in the world. All iPhone funs are looking forward to the responsing from Mac, what will mac strike back? Will it release the final wapen iPhone 5? What will iPhone 5 be?
iPhone 5 release date
According to analyst Shaw Wu, the Cupertino firm has reduced the number of iPhone orders by 20%-25% for this quarter ahead of the release. It seems that Foxconn will again be manufacturing the new phone. It’ll put the Samsung Galaxy S3 “to shame” according to the CEO of Foxconn, Terry Gou – though he didn’t say how.
However, a “Taiwan-based supply chain source” told DigiTimes in early May that Chinese firm Pegatron Technology has the iPhone 5 order ahead of a scheduled September launch. So guess the next-gen iPhone 5 release date to be mid to late 2012.
Unlike the iPhone 4S, the new iPhone will be a completely new design from what has gone before, we still complained for this.
Name： We gusee iPhone 5 is still named of new iPhone, but it may follow the new iPad and end up being called, simply, the new iPhone. We really hope not. One thing is for sure, Apple has already complained over the ownership of the iPhone5.com URL.
Screen：iPhone 5 will amount a larger, 4-inch screen.
Digitimes quotes the source as saying that Apple is expanding the screen size “to support the tablet PC market as the vendor only has a 9.7-inch iPad in the market.”
During May, The Wall Street Journal cited sources as saying the device will definitely sport a 4-inch display – which seems to be the broader consensus as well – other prototypes are similar in size. However, Apple CEO Tim Cook seemed to dampen the ‘larger screen’ speculation at the recent D:10 conference, saying the company has “one phone with one screen size, one resolution”.
Whatever, it seems Sony is involved with the display and it has been making the screen since February, ramping up production from May. A larger screen will also be welcomed by developers, as Mobilebloom points out.
Processor : Based on the roadmap of mobile chip design specialist ARM, we’ll see a quad-core processor debut in the new iPhone 5 - named Apple A6 probably, since othercompetitor like SanSang, HTC already used this processor in 2012. And some sites announced that processor will be manufactured by Samsung but designed by Apple itself.
RAM: 1GB of RAM should be at least.
After the new iPad’s brought 4G to an Apple device, it’s widely expected that 4G will come to iPhone 5 too. And with many 4G phones already announced in the US, it can’t be long before the iPhone supports 4G technologies – even if we won’t even confirm the exact time, maybe late this year or early next.
All is just our image, what iPhone 5 will be is still a riddle. No person can confirm until the release day of it. This is just the glamour of Apple. Not until the last moment to the public.
Looking forward to the legend of new iPhone 5!
