New iPhone 5 Rumors, News, and Updates


Remember how we all got excited about the iPhone 5 last year? It was a big disappointment because there was no iPhone 5 released in 2011, only the iPhone 4S.

But the rumors had never ceased. We still hear new iPhone 5 rumors, news, and updates everywhere on the tech world over the web. This time around, it looks more real than last year although we are still yet to find out. Nonetheless, for all you interested iPhone fans out there, the information below are exhilarating enough to make you want to have or at least see the real iPhone 5 soon!

Release Date and Price

There were already reports about the iPhone 5’s release date as early as February this year. Based on numerous technology sites and sources, the most probable date will be on September 12. The phone is supposedly going to be introduced along with the iPad mini. But still, other rumors are not to be disregarded which include an October release. The same schedule as last year’s release date for the iPhone 4S.

The price will be expected to remain relatively the same if not increase slightly from the iPhone 4S’s price.

Form Factor

Supposedly, the iPhone 5 will have a completely different casing from previous iPhone devices such as what had been seen in the iPhone 3G and the iPhone 4.

Specifications and Features

The iPhone 5 will definitely be powered by the iOS 5. Although, the iOS 6 was already introduced during Apple’s yearly event WWDC in June, a new phone won’t be able to experience the new operating system yet. But there had been reports saying that A6 quad core chips are to be used for the upcoming iPhone 5. It’s also going to have 1 GB of RAM with a possibility of a 64 GB memory storage space. 4G or LTE can also be expected since iPad devices are now using this type of Internet connection. It will obviously be built with WiFi and other basic features normally included for Apple devices.

As for the screen, rumor has it that it’s going to be about 4 inches with retina display and will be made of curved glass. Not the usual glass we break but something similar to anti-scratch Gorilla glass for handheld gadgets. It will allegedly use the liquid metal technology as well. Apple sealed a deal two years ago for exclusive rights to this technology. With liquid metal, various devices can boast of extreme strength due to a metal alloy.

The camera will feature 8MP with a built-in front facing HD camera installed and an image sensor capability with 3D imaging which is supposedly manufactured by Sony. It will also feature 1080p HD technology for the best resolution possible. The phone’s SIM card will be the newer micro SIM cards which are already being utilized by newly released smart phones.

With the NFC technology readily available in most mobile devices, the iPhone 5 will definitely be powered by NFC as well. All the usual features including a digital wallet will then be made available.

These new iPhone 5 rumors, news, and updates about the iPhone 5 will definitely make us want to fast forward into September or October. But until, all we can do is to discuss about it. Like what features we want to see? How much we expect it to cost? So on and so forth. What are your thoughts? Let us know!
