iPhone 5 Rumours: What You Need to Know

DStv-O is back and this week we will be looking at the latest iPhone 5, expected to be released in the middle of 2012. In 2011 there were rumours about an iPhone 5 release, but instead the iPhone 4s was released, and proved to be successful among consumers.
There are a couple of rumours about what the new iPhone 5 will have, and we DStv- Oers have decided to make things a little easier for you by outlining the ins and outs of the new Apple baby.

Who Doesn’t Love a Shapely Phone?

The iPhone 5 is expected to have a totally new design just as the iPhone 4s which had a different shape to its predecessor, the iPhone 3G. The iPhone 5 is expected to be thinner than the iPhone 4s, which includes a metal casing. The screen will apparently be slightly larger than the iPhone 4s, with a four-inch version likely to be integrated. Bigger always means better doesn’t it?

iPhone 5 Specs

Based on the processor chips manufacturing company ARM, The iPhone 5 will consist of a Quad core processor which will be debuting for the first time and will probably be called the Apple A6. How hectic does that sound? It’s like a character out of the latest Terminator! The processor will be 1.2GHz, faster than the previous iPhone version.
There will likely be memory of up to 32Gbs. The phone’s RAM will be increased from 512Mbs to 1Gbs. With many handsets on the market supporting 4G technology, it won’t be a surprise if Apple accommodates this technology too. Just as the iPad 2 supports Full HD it’s likely that the new iPhone will support this feature. Finally the iPhone 5 will be available in two colours - white and black.

Say Cheese!

Sony makes the cameras for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s, and has stated that their best sensor technologies have been manufactured in the iPhone. Apparently the new iPhone could have an 8mp camera.

iPhone Digital Wallet

There have been rumours that the iPhone 5 will include near field communication (NFC) technology in its phone, which would turn the iPhone into a debit or credit card. The developer has not been named but this technology is definitely in demand, and Apple could use it as a test run in the iPhone to see whether consumers accept the software and the way in which payments can be made.

That’s it for this week’s blog, at DStv-O we pride ourselves in giving the latest and most informative news around. Let us know what’s going on and tell is if you’re going to become a part of the iPhone 5 family.
