iPhone 5 popularity and choice to buy
WWDC 2012 will be kicking off June 11 and one of the most anticipated announcements is the iPhone 5, no one is too sure if this new smartphone will even get a mention at this event, but we believe it is on the cards.
As we all know Apple always likes that element of surprise, it is websites like ourselves who report the news and then the hype goes absolutely mental only to get a real kick in the teeth when no mention of a long awaited product does not even get revealed. Remember when we thought the new iPad was going to be called the iPad 3, or the iPhone 4S was going to be released in June but then it was October, and then the iPhone 4S had no major design change. This time is no different when it comes to hype, but yet still very exciting indeed to find out more as new news comes flying in.
Yesterday we reported the latest news surrounding iPhone 5 supplies, we mentioned that Apple and Foxconn are working together to build a brand new factory in China; this will be the main base where dedicated parts for major products like the iPhone 5 will be made. Will the iPhone 5 be released early this year or more like October like the iPhone 4S release?
No one knows what the design of the new iPhone 5 will look like, and the 6th generation Apple smartphone has had many mock-up ideas, so many concepts of this new handset has hit the web in full force and we are hoping Apple sees this to give them ideas on a whole new scope. Some believe that WWDC 2012 will only reveal a new MacBook line refresh and iOS 6; there will be plenty of customers at boiling anger point if the iPhone 5 does not get a mention.
Some of the features expected to bless the iPhone 5 include multi-point focus on the smartphones updated rear camera, this is new technology for Apple where users can select multiple points of focus on the touchscreen display. Apple could even be bringing a whole new quad-core A6 processor. Other cool features could include: 3.95 to 4-inch screen, mini Thunderbolt connection that would say goodbye to the 30-pin dock connector, 12-megapixel rear camera, iOS 6, FaceTime HD front camera, new type of home button that lights up, Retina HD display that should be a must, would also be great to see the likings of 4G LTE connectivity (certain countries of course) and 3D sound.
We here at Phones Review could sit here all day writing about the iPhone 5, but the real question we would like answered is “Will you be buying the new iPhone 5 upon release?” Maybe Android floats your boat more and will favour the Samsung Galaxy S3, please do let us know what you would prefer, call it a survey if you like.
Please remember we will be covering WWDC 2012 from June 11th, please head on down below to the commenting area and let us know if you will be buying the iPhone 5, even if you are not we would like to know why. Thanks guys and girls.
