Earlier on, we informed you about some new rumors suggesting that the iPhone 5 won’t feature a design overhaul, but instead will be fitted with a few extra hardware features. We want to discuss this in detail now and gather your thoughts on whether the changes would still warrant an upgrade for those of you with an iPhone 4.
Just to refresh, rumors from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of Concord Securities stated that the iPhone 5 would carry the exact same design as the iPhone 4, but it would come with an improved antenna design, obviously to counter another antenna-gate scandal if it it happened.
On a more pleasing note, we’re hearing that the iPhone 5 will have the same Apple A5 dual-core processor that is featured in the iPad 2, and the rear camera will get upgraded to an 8 megapixel sensor, obviously a lot better than the current 5MP sensor that’s offered in the iPhone 4.
And aside from both Verizon and AT&T support – that might be all you’re getting. No mention of a bigger 4-inch screen, built-in NFC chip and more importantly – no new design. With this in mind, we want to know what you think of the planned improvements for the iPhone 5 – are they to your liking?
Would you still upgrade to the iPhone 5 on Verizon or AT&T even if it carries the same design as the iPhone 4?
