iPhone 5 Not 4G LTE, 4G iPhone Delayed Until 2012
There have been quite a few rumours concerning the next generation Apple iPhone, currently being referred to as the iPhone 5, and along with the rollout of 4G LTE networks there has been speculation that the iPhone may release with 4G LTE support.
However apparently the iPhone 5 won’t be 4G LTE enabled as that little piece of tech has been reserved for the iPhone 6.
According to an article over on Pocket Now, The Street is reporting that Sam Greenholtz, an analyst for Telecom Pragmatics says the iPhone 5 which is expected this summer will not be 4G LTE as the next in the line, the iPhone 6 will deliver LTE support sometime in June 2012.
Apparently Geenholtz bases his comment on speaking with the usual unnamed and unconfirmed “people close to the matter.”
Furthermore according to the Street report, checks with several analysts and industry insiders support Greenholtz’ comments, while neither Apple nor Verizon would comment on the matter as usual.
So it would appear that the iPhone 5 won’t be playing nice on a 4G network and will be coming quite late to the 4G game with the 4G iPhone 6.
