Apple’s next iPhone announcement may not be quite as big as we all expected after new details were spotted by an analyst who notes only a slight increase in processing power and camera specs – upgraded areas which closely resemble the move from iPhone 3G to iPhone 3GS – suggesting that the next evolution of Apple’s smartphone will be called the iPhone 4GS or 4S.
The analyst from Jefferies and Co., Peter Misek, claims “According to our industry checks, the device should be called iPhone 4S and include minor cosmetic changes, better cameras, A5 dual-core processor, and HSPA+ support”
Addressing suggestion that Apple’s push-back of the next iPhone from early-summer to September was to co-incide with the launch of 4G LTE network, Misek says “We believe the likelihood of the iPhone 5 launch in September including LTE [Long-Term Evolution] is now remote”. He adds “According to our industry checks, the device should be called iPhone 4S and include minor cosmetic changes, better cameras, A5 dual-core processor, and HSPA+ [Evolved High-Speed Packet Access] support.”
With excitement at fever-pitch over what we believed would be an iPhone 5, surely Apple would have culled the rumours and officially stated a little truth by now? If a few minor upgrades are all we have to look forward to many will be disappointed come September, when official word is suggested to emerge on whatever this next iPhone will bring.
