iPhone 5 – What new features to expect!

iPhone 5 Design

From the prototypes/spare parts those are leaked over the Internet, it can be assumed that iPhone 5 will be having the same design as that of current generation iPhone 4. It is expected that a metal plating, perhaps Aluminium will replace the glass on the back of the iPhone. The iPhone 5 will, therefore, be still thinner than the current one.

iPhone 5 Screen Size

Due to lot’s of competition in the smartphone market, Apple had to increase its screen size from 3.5″ to 4.0″. Yes, iPhone 5 will be having 4.0″ screen but still less than that of Desire HD & Samsung Galaxy S 2. This screen size increase will increase the height of the iPhone. However, the width will remain the same as it will span edge to edge.

iPhone 5 Resolution

We expect that Apple will undoubtedly go beyond the Retina Display (640 X 960). It will be a must for them to increase the resolution for the 4.0-inch screen for better display. We doubt in spite of confirmation that the screen resolution will go beyond Retina Display. It isn’t cheap, and that will inevitably cause a problem for the developers.

iPhone 5 Camera

There aren’t many Camera rivals (except the Nokia N8) in the smartphones, almost all smartphones have 5MP camera which is enough, I guess, for a smartphone. The assumption is that iPhone 5 will be coming up with 8mp camera and Full HD 1080p video recording.

iPhone 5 Model Colors

Since iPhone 4 didn’t appear in White model. There are high anticipation that iPhone 5 will come in both White as well as Black models. (Hint! iPad 2 release.)

CDMA Model in iPhone 5

iPhone 4 is already out in its CDMA version for Verizon Wireless Network, and the same will be on the iPhone 5 may be with Verizon or maybe with other carriers.

iPhone 5 iOS 5

iOS 5 will be on the iPhone 5 according to the announcements at WWDC 2011. It will come with lot’s of new features and new multi-touch gestures.

iPhone 5 Hardware

The most interesting part! iPhone 4 competitors are increasing day by day with some unexpected features and hardware specifications. Therefore its must for Apple to make iPhone 5 which could be something extraordinary, the hardware specifications makes it so.

iPhone 5 will be coming up with A5 Dual-core processor for much better performance than the current generation. Apple has already released iPad 2 with A5 processor chip, but benchmarks state that A4 processor chip performs better than the A5, that’s shocking. But its confirmed! iPhone 5 is coming up with A5 Dual-core processor.

Along with new processor, a more significant amount of RAM is must and Yes!, iPhone 5 will be coming up with 512MB’s of extra RAM thus making a total of 1GB RAM. This will result in better multitasking experience.


iPhone 4 was a massive hit of 2010; its release was successful and even the sales. It proved No.#1 in all aspects, i.e. the best smartphone of 2010. The antenna-gate issue in early sales was regarded as the biggest FAIL! of 2010… yes seriously!

iPhone 5 is trying to cope up with the toughest competitors Galaxy S 2, and Motorola Atrix 4G could again achieve the best smartphone medal. Just stay tuned over the WWDC 2011 (Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference 2011) happening in June 2011.

Stay tuned! Something awesome is coming!
