Truth be told, that this replica of the iPhone 5 was originally published shortly after the iPhone 4 came out back in June 2010.
Hopefully, this will be the last update, but you never know, considering how long this whole waiting-for-iPhone-5 saga has gone on.
As those of you who’ve read earlier versions of this article, with the release of the iPhone 4S, Apple did include some features that would be in the iPhone 5, so the list is now shorter; it’s been culled from 20 down to 15 features.
As a reminder, the 15 items in the list are ordered from least important to most in a reverse countdown. And let’s hope that the 15 features will not be shortlisted further, otherwise, it’s not worth the waiting anymore.
Now here’s a peep at some of the iPhone 5 outstanding upgrade
- 1. The A5 Processor
iPhone 5 will house the A5 as the main processor, which technically is the same chip that currently powers the iPad 2. The A5 contains a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU with NEON SIMD accelerator and a dual core PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU, which means that the iPhone5 can do twice the work at once. The processor speed will be somewhere between 1.2 to 1.5 GHz, with probably a 1GB RAM.
The processor upgrade is done not just to increase the processing speed of the phone, but also to compete with the newly launched Samsung Galaxy S III.
- 2. The Camera
The iPhone 4 sports a 5 megapixel camera, so I’m expecting that the iPhone 5 will have a rear-facing 8MP dual-LED flash camera. However, this isn’t really “awesome”, since most of the high-end Android smartphones come with an 8MP camera. Along with that, the iPhone 5 is expected to have a front-facing camera for video chatting.
Another interesting feature is that the iPhone 5 will be capable of taking pictures in Panorama. It will work similarly to the ’360 Panorama’ application in the App Store. It will let you take pictures in a sequence as you move the camera from one side to another, which in the end will effortlessly stitch the images together to create a panorama.
Now, it’s you who will say that this is worth the waiting or not.
