We recently heard a rumor that the next version of iPhone will have a much different appearance than the current generation, but the main change will affect the technical characteristics. Another information about Apple’s next smartphone, however, is completely opposite. It comes from sources on the site This Is My Next (which operates the former editor in chief of Engadget Joshua Topolski) and is even accompanied by rendering of an image that perhaps shows us how the iPhone 5 will look like. On it we see a device that has little in common with its predecessor, but somewhat reminiscent of the iPod touch. In addition, it will be thinner than the iPhone 4 will be a specific profile, which will tapers at one end.
The photo, which was established on the basis of a sketch, reveals another of the surprising features of the iPhone 5. The area around the central button is larger and will be used for making gestures. Already had information on similar functionality for the iPad and is likely to be added in iPhone 5. According to the information screen will now occupies almost the entire front of the phone, but its size will probably be 3.7 inches while preserving the resolution of the iPhone 4. This will lead to a slight decrease in pixel density. Is not excluded that the phone has the Gobi chipset of Qualcomm, which will enable him to support GSM and CDMA networks. In turn, this will allow Apple to offer both the phone a lot more markets, which is a definite plus, especially when the equation is involved and the huge Chinese market. Interesting rumors to suggest that Apple may have prepared us more surprises than we thought.
