It is believed that Apple has begun to test new-model prototype of iPhone. This mobile phone adopts the variation version of A5X processor and 1GB RAM. Furthermore, the outer shell of this new-model prototype is the same as that of iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. However, it is probably a kind of defensive measures adopted in a bid to prevent the information leakage. Before releasing iPhone 4, the iPhone engineer lost the prototype phone in the bar which was covered by 3GS shell.
According to technology blog website called Apple Insider, the analyst Brian White from Topeka Capital Markets holds the same idea as popular view does. In other words, the iPhone 5 will own wholly new design with 4-inch screen instead of 3.5-inch on the previous iPhone. White indicates that iPhone 5 will come out in later period this year based on his recent visit to China. And, iPhone 5 will possess smooth integration design in favor of 4G LTE network.
According to many previous reports, Apple will release iPhone 5 this June. Because iPhone 4S is an exception. Based on the previous routine, Apple always releases its new-model iPhone in June or July each year. However, as reported by Korean Maeil Business Newspaper, Apple will release next generation of iPhone this October, which is later than iPhone 4S for one year.
