New iPhone 5: Won’t Look Like an iPhone?

By Alan Ng - Oct 7, 2010

We have some exciting news for those looking forward to the next-generation iPhone device, as following on from the big news about the Verizon iPhone today, we have also heard fresh details on the iPhone 5.

In the same article published about the plans for Apple to release a CDMA-version of the iPhone 4 for Verizon, the Wall Street Journal has also said that Apple are already developing a new, separate device – likely to be known as the iPhone 5.

Interestingly, their report adds that the iPhone 5 will come with a ‘different form factor’, meaning that the design and shape of the device will not look the same as the current iPhone 4 model, according to their sources.

No carriers are confirmed yet for the iPhone 5, but if the standard iPhone 4 is on it’s way to Verizon in early 2011, then it is very likely that the iPhone 5 would be available as well.

What are your thoughts on this? Would you like to see a completely different design for the iPhone?

    I really don't think that it will be a flip phone the I phone is what it is because everything you do is just with a touch of a finger and that's what we like about it so I don't think they will take that away. But I prefer it to have a bigger screen and to have it's problems fixed

    I would like a 3.7" screen with the highest possible resolution (like now) and AMOLED is possible. A faster CPU, Micro SD slot, even better camera wtih higher than 5MP. Maybe 10MP w/ 1080P capturing. Possibly night vision shooting. Even more durable exterier. Flash enabled.

    I'd rather see the antenna problem fixed than a new design–and all the quirks that come along with it. Function over form.
