Bad news iPhone fans, especially for those of you that are waiting for the iPhone 5. A report emerged today, issued by Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo with Concord Securities, that the iPhone 5 will not feature a new design, and will utilize the A5 processor already found in the iPad 2 along with an 8-megapixel camera. This means that the long rumored 4-inch screen that we’ve been hearing about, might just be that, a rumor. The report also states that Apple will switch to a a Qualcomm baseband for both GSM and CDMA models, along with an improved antenna design.
So, should we believe? The iPhone 3Gs saw a minor update over the 3G, especially when it came to form factor, so it stands to reason that the above report could be true. However, the Android market is chalk full of 4-inch+ sized screens. Apple needs a response, and some how we don’t think it will come in the form of just an iOS update, which is expected to be announced at this year’s WWDC along with a new OS for Mac computers.
What do you think? Minor update or larger screen? We’re gonna put our money on a 4-inch iPhone 5.
