Apple iPhone 5 breaks cover
The above link to the video provides a physical comparison between iPhone 5 and the current 4S. Launch date rumours range from 13th to 21st September 2012.
The new 16×9 longer format widescreen and new power cable connector are both confirmed in the video. The processor and new smaller sim size remain persistent speculation; but the 1 GHz dual-core processor in the iPhone 4S has been eclipsed by competitors in recent months.
The battery charge life remains a weak spot for many smartphones, particularly those with larger screens. So the move to a larger screen on the iPhone 5 will hopefully be accompanied by one similar to the more powerful batteries that have recently started to appear in devices from Samsung and HTC.
The camera is rumored to remain at 8mb, but with an improved aperture. This may marginally help reduce thickness of the device (less than 1mm).
The fragile glass back housing of the 4S appears to have been replaced with aluminium.
In just a few days, the truth will be out there.
