After the CDMA Verizon iPhone announcement this week, the focus quickly shifted to the iPhone 5. Rumors of the iPhone possibly having no home button, was perhaps the most startling. Some aren’t taking it serious, while others are skeptical as to whether it can be pulled off. Well as for me, I’m just saying, “this is APPLE”!
The popular tech website, Engadget, has been tipped off by some of their “reliable sources”. Check out what was stated as it relates to the next iPhone, the iPhone 5:
But all of these moves are leading up to the iPhone 5 — a completely redesigned handset — which our sources say is on track for a summer launch. Right now, the device is being tested discreetly by senior staff at Apple (strictly on campus only). We don’t have much info on the phone at this point, but our understanding is that the new device will be a total rethink from a design standpoint and will be running atop Apple’s new A5 CPU (a Cortex A9-based, multi-core chip). This device, like the iPad 2, will feature a Qualcomm chipset that does triple duty as the CDMA / GSM / UMTS baseband processor — from what we hear there’s no LTE in the mix at this point.
I’m not sure what this new design could be or mean, but I’m sure Apple can pull it through. Are you interested in a “completely redesigned handset”? Hit up the comments and let us know!
