Apple 3G iPhone firmware hardware support specs leaked

Apparently the guys at Engadget are claiming their have heard from a “reliable source” (as usual said “reliable source” remains anonymous so unable to confirm) a private version of the Apple 3G iPhone’s firmware has been gone over and dissected to reveal this hardware support…

Infineon PMB6952 / S-GOLD3 six-band UMTS / HSDPA transceiver – Murata LMRX3JCA-479 tri-band amplifier (we’re assuming for the 3G) – Sony SP9T – antenna Switch for GSM / UMTS dual mode – ARM 1176JZF-S – Main CPU (same as in 1st gen iPhone) – Skyworks 77427 – UMTS / HSDPA tx 1900, rx 2100MHz – Skyworks 77414 – UMTS / HSDPA 1900 – Skyworks 77413 – UMTS / HSDPA 850MHz – Internal build model number: n82ap (1st gen iPhone was model m68ap) – UMTS Power Saving – on or off – Hooks for Global Locate Library (GLL), software that handles GPS related commands for the host processor

Furthermore it is suggested this is evidence for GPS along with tri-band HSDPA (3G) support and thus making the Apple 3G iPhone compatible with international carriers. Previously reported was the new second-gen Apple 3G iPhone would be offering GPS, 3G and only slightly thicker than the original.

Also the guys at GigaOM have recently confirmed that there is GPS support with the contract being given to Broadcom; so if all these specs are true we can expect the Apple 3G iPhone processor to be the same as the first-gen Apple iPhone.

It is expected that the Apple 3G iPhone will be announced at Apple’s WWDC Keynote speech on Monday 9th June.
