If you are confused which high end smartphone to buy either Samsung Galaxy S3 or HTC One X or waiting for iPhone 5 to launch then here is some news which might help you decide more further.Japanese website Macotakara is reporting that Apple’s sixth generation iPhone is all set and may debut in fall.if you are wondering how authentic is this piece of tip, then here is some history about Macotakara.
The resource successfully predicted that iPhone 4S would release in October 2011. The August reports stated that iPhone 4S and iPad 3 would publicly launch in October that year. The iPhone 4S did, in fact, launch in mid-October. The new iPad, however, was launched a few months later in March 2012.Macotakara is citing sources in China.
We had heard rumors that iPhone 5 might come with a larger display screen as compared to iPhone 4s Macotakara confirmed these speculations, however quite differently. The blog reports the new iPhone could have a different look than the latest model. The back panel could be two-toned (LiquidMetal) with glass and aluminum that would make the phone more durable.Check out the concept photos of iPhone 5 from artist John Fawcett and the video below what Mashable posted.
Last week we heard news of tech fans in China flocking to e-commerce giant Taobao to place pre-orders for the next-generation device.Reuters had reported that sellers on Taobao had posted concept photos and specs on the site, along with options to pre-order the device for more than $1,000.
So will you wait for iPhone 5 or go ahead with Samsung Galaxy S3 or HTC One X ?
Update 1 :
There have been many reports that iPhone 5 would be unveiled in the press conference on September 12th and would be available from September 21st.
Update 2 :
Mark Gurman of 9to5mac spotted this.These images comes from the repair guys at iLab in Japan.The new photos give a clear look at what a black, fully-assembled next-generation iPhone might look like when it ships to customers this September 12th.
These “parts” could just be elaborate renders or a prototype thing, but they do line up with the rumor mill’s predictions.
A new flex cable holds the Home button in place and the speakers and cameras look improved with larger space for sensors (the front-facing camera for FaceTime is repositioned at the center of the device). Obviously, the screen is larger and the micro 19-pin dock is also visible.
We know the display is going to be 4 inches and this would be taller as reports from 9to5mac.
9to5mac made use of iOS simulator found in development tools for simulating the resolution of 640*1136.The next-generation iPhones with taller displays feature a home screen that scales to five rows of icons, according to sources. The current 3.5-inch iPhone displays feature four rows of icons.Thus confirming that iOS6 is scalable to larger displays as that of iPhone5.
Perhaps even more interesting is that the simulator did not correctly display five rows of icons at resolutions other than 640 x 1136. At other resolutions, the icons will scale to an iPad-like home screen layout, not at the proportions and spacing of the current iPhone and iPod touch display. This may just add another layer of proof that the next-gen iPhone display will come in at a resolution of 640 x 1136.
Update 4 :
9to5mac has posted some more info from the iOS6 log – a presence of a 9 pin dock connector(30 to 9 ?).The information seems to be a generic reference to all future iOS devices, rather than being tailored to just one device.we are not sure whether it could be iPhone5 but considering the leaks which are happening these days, I have a feeling that this might be of iPhone 5
Update 5 :
ETrade retailer has also discovered that the display is 0.1mm thinner, gives more light transmittance than the iPhone 4S, and presents better scratch resistance than the iPhone 4S.The hole for the home button is 0.3 mm smaller in diameter than the iPhone 4S, and the distance between the bottom of the display and the foot of the device is also reduced by 2.6mm.
Update 6 :
French blog Nowhereelse.fr posted some mockups how it would look once you hold it in your hand.
Update 7 :
Reports from French blog Nowhereelse.fr appears to show the next iPhone’s new nano-SIM design, which is said to have surfaced from China where the next iPhone is being produced.In addition to this NoWhereElse’s images also show the smaller home button.So from micro sim to nano sim what next ?
