Since WWDC 2011 the market rumors about Apple became very hot for the new iPhone smartphone. Everyone started calling it the ‘iPhone 5‘ but later some said that Apple is not releasing the “5” rather is going to come up with the “4S” version. Back in April 2011, I predicted that Apple iPhone 5 may hit the market near Christmas. I guess may be if the rumors are true, we might see the 6th version of iPhone named as iPhone 5 in December 2011.
According to some sources, Apple will be releasing two handsets now and both within this year 2011. Yes! That sounds stupid, as a businessman I would hardly think of doing that. Still rumors and yet not confirmed, the two different handsets would be the ‘iPhone 4S‘ and the ‘iPhone 5’. Some sources say that iPhone 4S will be releasing somewhere in August 2011 and the iPhone 5 will hit the market in the first week of September 2011. Exactly, now you see this sounds even more stupid. I believe that a billion dollar company won’t play like this even if they have to launch two handsets this year August and December would be the right time, or may be iPhone 5 will launch at WWDC 2012.
The specification of both handsets are again not confirmed. Samsung sued Apple for the next iPhone for copying the style of their Samsung Galaxy S II, may be that is why Apple has to roll back the iPhone 5 project and name it as iPhone 4S. Things are still hot behind the curtains and we have still no clues whether there will be two handsets coming out or will it be just one. iPhone 4S might have dual-core A5 processor and a 5 megapixel camera just like the iPad 2, whereas iPhone 5 will have 1.4Ghz dual-core processor with 8 megapixel camera.
My thinking tells me that it will be iPhone 5 because Apple is ready to bring out iOS5 so why would an iPhone 4S be running an iOS5 – that’s what my common sense tells me.
