  • Upcoming iPhone to Get Video Recording, More Mega Pixels and Multi-Core Processors

    Since the announcement of 3.0, the upcoming iPhone rumor mill is rolling faster than ever! We recently informed you about an OLED and faster internet in the upcoming iPhone and now the rumor has it that the next iPhone will support an enhanced camera with more megapixels (who say these don't matter ) and finally, video recording capabilities. The current hardware is capable of recording as well (anyone heard of Cycorder? ), but Apple is most likely improving to increase sales of future models.

    The source of this rumor is AppleInsider - and they are quite sure about the tipster who leaked this news. The video recording will be done through a Movie.app that will work similarly to the Voice Memo app announced recently. This rumor is also inline with the newly discovered publish a video feature by Engadget.

    Another rumor states Imagination, creator of the current PowerVR chips used in iPhone 3G, has announced a new multi-core GPU called PowerVR SGX543. The chip can have any number of cores ranging from two to sixteen without any significant changes in the apps, which makes it 'transparent' to the developers. They also support OpenCL - making it a really convenient update for Apple.

    For now, these all are just rumors, but it'd be great to see them come true.

    P.S. The GPU upgrade could also be related to the increase in internet speeds announced before.

      I see you just jumped into the 9th gen iPhone coming in 2020.

      If you pre-order now, you also get a PS9:

      So the PS9 is almost as good as an iPhone 3G then?

      Can the iPhone get any better. Ugh! Lol. Now I really have to pay retail for the iPhone! ): Unless my carrier distributes the iPhone too in my country. Which is highly unlikely. Sigh.
