  • 960x640 Screen, 512MB RAM in iPhone HD?


    According to reports out today, Apple has placed a big order for next-generation iPhones that could live up to their rumored name of "iPhone HD." The sometimes-on-target-sometimes-off Taiwanese trade publication DigiTimes claims that the phone will have a 960640 touchscreen, and doubled RAM capacity to 512MB, as well as a larger battery. The report says that Foxconn, the same company which builds the current iPhone, received an order for 24 million devices to be shipped starting in June.

    Ming-Chi Kuo of "DigiTimes Research" says that the high resolution screen will use in-plane switching (IPS), the same technology used in the iPad as well as the 27-inch iMac to improve the screen's visibility when viewed at an angle. The screen (reportedly from LG Display and Prime View International, the company behind E Ink "electronic paper") also features fringe-field switching (FFS) for better readability in sunlight, emphasizing Apple's new focus on its mobile devices as e-readers. The screen in supposed to be 33% thinner than existing iPhone displays, in order to make room for larger battery modules supplied by Simplo Technology and Dynapack International Technology. The teardown of the Gizmodo phone showed a battery 16% larger than the one on the iPhone 3GS.

    Kuo also reports the new phone will use the same A4 system-on-a-chip, rather than the multicore Cortex A9, and that RAM will be increased to 512MB. The Gizmodo phone, by contrast, had 256MB of RAM, as did the phone revealed on a Vietnamese website last week.

      I just put my iPhone 3GS on craigslist and will pay the difference to get the next generation iPhone. I really would like to see it record in HD.

      Look at those iPod controls.. they're so tiny. I think I'd have to buy a mini-stylus just to push play. :[

      Bring it on Apple!!!! I already have my 3GS sold and ready to get my hands on the next gen iPhone. I really hope that the top notch phone has the 512mb topped with 64gb of space.

      Since when is 960X480 considered "HD"?

      Looks like a great phone, but let's not start redefining standards.

      That isn't really the newest iphone screen. That is a image capture from one of the recent videos with a picture photoshopped onto it. Look at the very top you can see where they didn't stretch the corner enough.

      i'll believe it when i see it - just last month everyone speculated that the ipad was going to have 4 gigs of ram and the iphone 2. Either way I'm buying the EVO, time to change it up.

      Its 960 x 680

      which is close enough to 720p... your eyes wouldn't even make the difference on a big screen so it's even less relevant on a 3.5 inch screen.

      Play with the latest T-Mobile Sidekick for 5 minutes and tell me that again.

      I hope the bigger battery is a much needed improvement
