No iPhone 5 But Possibly an iPhone 4X Version
Thinking Apple will unveil the iPhone 5 later in the year? Well apparently some think otherwise and that Apple won’t push out an entire new iPhone 5 but rather a refined version of the iPhone 4, which has been dubbed the iPhone 4X.
The interesting article over on Info World, Galen Gruman says, “don’t be surprised that there’s no iPhone 5 shown in June” as Apple has rationed their major redesigns to every 2 or 3 years whilst pushing out smaller yearly updates.
Thus apparently we can expect a “refined model of the iPhone 4” an iPhone 4X, but not the major redesign expected with the iPhone 5.
Based on Apple’s “typical practice” here’s what Gruman says we can expect…the iPhone 4X will be faster and thinner, the home button might become virtual, possibly a 64GB model, world capable CDMA and GSM, possibly an SD slot, microUSB port, and enhanced haptic response, and Gruman suspects the majority of these will come via iOS.
So there you have it and although it’s only one guy’s opinion, he does throw some good points out there. Will Apple unveil the iPhone 5 in June, I don’t know, perhaps it will be just a refined version of the Verizon iPhone, maybe Apple won’t unveils a new iPhone at all. Will it be called the iPhone 4X? Doubtful, as I think it sounds too similar to a certain Australian lager.
So what do our readers think the next iPhone may be named? Do you have your own thoughts and desires on what a new iPhone should deliver this time round? Feel free to voice your opinions in our comments area below.
