Many of you are probably anxious for the long-expected iPhone 5 to be released. So far, there have been numerous rumors related to what the smartphone will come up with and to its release date. If it is official that the iPhone 5 will come in September, rumors as to what the phone will look like and what it will come up with haven’t stopped from circulating.
Therefore, the latest rumor in what iPhone 5 is concerned is related to its screen. If till now, the iPhone was considered that it would feature a 4.5 inch touchscreen panel, today the Asian technology publication Digitimes has reported that the Apple’s device will feature a 4 inch screen. Besides this, they also said that the phone will come with a metal chassis instead of reinforced glass.
According to Digitimes, there are sources that say iPhone 5 will feature even a smaller screen that will be somewhere between 3.5-3.7 inch and the bezel of the panel will be very thin and will make the screen look larger this way. There are rumors related to the back of the phone as well. According to some of these rumors, the back will be made of metal. Others would be inclined to believe that Apple will use a glass design for this smatphone and thus improve the phone’s signal strength.
Among the features the phone is thought to come up with and that we’ve mentioned in a previous post, there are:
- iOS 5
- battery life of 14 hours on Talk Time on 3G and of 7 hours on the 4G
- A5 Dual Core Processor
- built-in GPS
- Face Recognition
- 64G of memory
The good part of all this is that the phone will soon be launched along with a low-cost upgraded iPhone 4 (iPhone 4S) and thus we will get to see which features the phone will come up with and which not.
