Recently we have been hearing lots of iPhone 5 release rumors, some of these are stating that the 5th-gen iPhone may even arrive in 2012, we wonder if these rumors have resulted in you becoming impatient buying the Verizon iPhone 4.
The iPhone 5 release date is unknown, previous iPhone releases suggest that we could well see it arrive in June/July 2011, however some other sources are suggesting that it will arrive in September, if September comes and goes with no iPhone 5 chances are it will be delayed until 2012, but what does this mean for people who are almost due an upgrade now?
Well if your next smartphone has to be Apple the obvious choice has to be the Verizon iPhone 4, this is said to eradicate the antenna problems we saw with other iPhone 4 handsets and many say that Verizon’s coverage is much better than AT&T’s, but let’s not forget that in terms of multimedia capabilities and performance hardware nothing has changed.
With far more advanced smartphones running Google Android and Windows Phone 7 being released every month it would be in Apple’s interest to release the next-gen LiPhone asap, otherwise people may be swayed to buying a rival’s smartphone which features a dual-core processor, 4G connectivity and a high-resolution camera. Let’s face it when you compare the iPhone 4 to some of 2011’s smartphones it does seem dated in terms of tech specs.
We would love to hear from you if these iPhone 5 rumors have changed your plans to wait for Apple’s next smartphone, have you bought the Verizon iPhone 4 instead or switched to an Android device? Let us know in the comments section below.
