Much has been said about the Apple iPhone 4G — these include rumors of a summer 2010 release and the features that it will offer. However, we have noticed a current trend that an iPhone 5G will be coming in 2011. So what do we really know about these two versions?
The first thing that needs to be made clear is the fact that the rumored iPhone 4G will not offer 4G/LTE speeds — this just means that it is the 4th-generation smarphone from Apple. However, we recently learned that Apple has a job listing for someone familiar with LTE.
This means that Apple are working on a full 4G working iPhone, but it will not be this year for a number of reason. One of those reasons is that AT&T are a long way off with its 4G development — as the carrier is making improvements to its current 3G data service first.
So what do we expect to see with the rumored iPhone 4G in June? I would say that it would not have all the amazing features that have been suggested to us. If you are hoping for a new design — such as some of the concept HD or Pro handsets we have seen — then we think you will be disappointed.
The 2010 model will have a few new features, these could include an improved camera, improved battery performance — which will be thanks to a newer version of the iPhone OS.
As for the Apple iPhone 5G, this is the model that will look totally different — maybe something like those concepts that we mentioned above. This new model could also come with newer hardware, such as a declocked iPad A4 processor, OLED screen and iPhone OS 4.0. Do not expect any Flash Player support, Steve Jobs already announced that they would never support this, as it is too buggy — instead preferring to go down the HTML 5 option.
This is just what we know so far, if you have anything to add — then do so by adding your comments below.
