  • 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.

    [via AppleInsider]

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

      There just way too many rumors out there...
      I'm sure all of these critical features would suck up the
      battery too, would it? Let's just hope there will be more news
      about a more powerful bsttery.

      Why not? Sounds pretty likely to me, in fact its hardly difficult to guess - I doubt the rumour maker works for Apple, he's probably just put two and two together.

      Obviously it'll have video.
      Obviously it'll have a better camera.
      Obviously it'll have the next generation of the Power VR chip it already features.

      I just hope that the new iPhone looks nothing like the back of the one in the pic above!
      So what if it has a better camera and can do video, there are loads of phones on the market that can do that now. Trust Apple to make a huge show off features that have already been on phones for the past 6 years!

      Yay!! I'm an iPhoneaholic now lol.

      Really? I hope it does. That pic looks nice. :] I really hope they don't change the design too much. I absolutely LOVE how the 3G looks, but a different material for the back might be nice. :]

      And I hope it has higher resolution, especially for movies, more memory, better battery, better camera, front facing camera, more RAM, and bigger hard drive. I highly doubt I'll get them all, but it doesn't hurt to dream.

      EDIT: OLED would be nice, too.

      I like how the 3G looks aswell but it has a cheap feel to it compared to the 2G.

      That pic is from an earier post I think in which it showed it has the same camera as the iPhones now, so I think it's just a modified case for iPhone 3G.

      I don't think so. I never liked the back of the iPhone. When it first came out, I wished it would just have a solid black or solid gray back. Then the 3G came out with a one-piece back and I thought it looked smexy! I don't think it feels cheap. But it doesn't matter because it's NOT cheap and it's freaking amazing!

      While there are rumors afoot in this period of waiting, I might as well steel a quote from Yahtzee and say that the new iPhone will give us "BJ's and pudding."
