  • BGR: Rumored Physical Attributes of iPhone 5


    On Tuesday, BGR posted the latest rumors and chatter coming from its sources with regard to the iPhone 5 - Apple's next generation iPhone scheduled for launch in 2012.

    Despite earlier claims from the likes of prominent Wall Street watchers and analysts like Gene Munster, the iPhone 5 may not turn up in early summer, keeping with the new fall-time iPhone launch tradition apparently set this year.

    BGR says the iPhone 5 won't reach consumers until the fall of 2012, a full year after the iPhone 4S dropped to record sales. But consistent with the predictions of Munster and others, new design elements will factor into the picture for Apple's next-gen smartphone.

    The iPhone 5 will "join the glass iPhone face with a new aluminum back plate," the report reads. "It will also cover a redesigned antenna system that surrounds the device, allowing Apple to build the rear case out of aluminum without having to use a large plastic insert above the antennas as the company does on its iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G."

    Although the BGR didn't speak to the last wave of iPhone 5 rumors, some maintain that a summer 2012 release is still possible for the smartphone refresh, which will likely deliver a bigger screen (albeit the same resolution of the current model) and a faster processor.

      Why don't you ask apple why they named the iPhone "5" the iPhone 4S. And the other guy is right, technically it would make sense to call it "iPhone 6" because it is the 6th generation.

      I don't understand the people's logic that the next would be named iPhone 5. Yes they named the 2nd gen the 3G, yes that was good marketing. The 3rd gen was the 3GS because they kept the same exterior design with some updated hardware, then the 4th gen was named...yes the iPhone 4! And again, no exterior change so they named it the 4s. Now here it would still go with their naming scheme and name the next one the iPhone 6, especially if they do in fact, change the exterior and make some major software/hardware changes. So the only part of the logic the other guys think is the marketing as it would make more sense to name it the iPhone 6 because it's going to be a whole new phone therefore want to name it that way to bring the hype up. My 2 cents.

      i think Apple will either go with the "new" Iphone S or something like IPhone "pro" or IPhone "air" like there mac book, i mean who wants to be around in 2014 like "yeah i have the new iphone 9 or iphone 9s" it just sounds stupid. That just doesnt seem like Apple logic at all.

      When Jobs introduced the iPhone4 he said, and I quote "and we're calling it, iPhone4, the 4th generation iPhone". Look it up.

      Could you imagine Cook saying the same thing next, "and we're calling it, iPhone5, the 6th generation iPhone".

      Why? People only started calling it the 2G after the 3G came out. It was just.. the iPhone. But anyway, who cares. I'm more interested in the actual phone, not the name.

      Sorry idiots... but there can't be an iPhone 6 without an iPhone 5 first. Apple will decide what it's called... so get over yourselves.

      If they named it after Jobs why wouldn't they just call it "sTeve"
      or maybe they'll call it the "iPhone 5 6th gen 4GLTE HD LMNOP RSVP PDQ running iOS"
      personally, if it's as useful as I expect, I'll still get one even if it's called "bIll"

      I'd be willing to bet much money that it won't be the iPhone 6.
