“Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo with Concord Securities issued a note on Monday offering alleged details of the next iPhone,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider. “His checks with supply chain sources indicated that the next handset from Apple will not feature an all-new-design, but rather only ‘slight modifications’ from the iPhone 4.”
“Specifically, Kuo has heard that the iPhone 5 will include the faster A5 processor already found in the iPad 2, as well as a higher resolution 8 megapixel rear camera,” Hughes reports. “He has also been told that Apple will switch to a Qualcomm baseband for both GSM and CDMA models, along with an improved antenna design.”
Hughes reports, “Kuo has also been told that the new iPhone will go into trial production in August and mass production in September, allowing Apple to reach shipment volumes of between 28 million and 32 million units this year. That would align with previous reports that have indicated Apple plans to make its new iPhone available for sale later than usual this year, likely in Apple’s next fiscal year beginning in October.”
