iPhone 5 To Sport Dual-Core Processors?
Digitimes is reporting on the possibility of the iPhone 5 touting a dual-core processor. Not much of a surprise, considering that the new Android devices will be sporting such chips, and I don't see Apple falling short for competition. This means better gaming and video experiences, as well as a nice speed increase. We should see this migrate over well to the iPad 2, so we can expect to see upgrades on both devices.
With strong competition coming from Google devices, and other smartphones, Apple sounds like they are ready to up the competition once again. The iPhone 5 is expected to be released in the USA about June or July, (same months that iPhone 4 debuted last year), however it seems as though most of this ETA is mostly based on rumors, but then again, the iPhone 5 is a rumor all together.
Can we expect dual-core processors? Probably. Can we expect the iPhone 5 this year? Honestly, I'm doubtful. Too much controversy/pissed off Verizon users. Either way, who would be opposed to processor upgrades? I sure wont. Too bad I already have an iPhone 4 though.
The chance is also high for Apple, RIM and Sony Ericsson to roll out dual-core smartphones soon, added the sources.
The requirement for stronger capability to manage multimedia functionality including 3D games and HD video has pushed handset vendors to develop dual-core processors, the sources asserted.

For the iphone to stay on top it needs the following:
can also use an 8-meg camera in back and maybe an updated DESIGN..that would be SWEET, can't wait for both the iPhone 5 and the iPad 2

I don't see the need for such high processing power in an iPhone to be honest. It's not gonna speed up browsing, video & music playback, camera quality, or 99% of any App or Game, phone functions.
By the way, Sony is putting quad-core CPU and quad-core GPU into the PSP2

Yeah controversy? I don't see why one wouldn't be released this year.

need Dual Core, not necessarily an 8mp camera as we have RETINA display and HDR...so a higher res cam is not REALLY needed. Longer battery life, cooks and cleans and drives me to work hahahahhaa! WANT want want... :]

Would need dual core with a high end graphics chip! And give Sony a real run for their money!

Dual core means more power consumption so will apple use better battery life!!.
Then again this is all just rumors

iPhone 5 will have a dual core, it'll need to compete with Android 3.0 Honeycomb and all it;s dual core goodness.
If the iPad 2 has no dual cores then iPhone 5 won't.
My wish for iPhone 5:-
Xenon Camera flash, one led is crap
SAMOLED screen, why have a high pixel density screen with a phone that can't show pure blacks or vibrant colours like red is pure vibrant red on a Galaxy S. Get rid of old tech LCD is what they need to do.
Dual core CPU
Dedicated Camera and zoom buttons on the right hand side

i5 rumor sounds cool but why? What's really a dual core gonna mean over a single core? What's the ultimate iPhone goal? I4 should be the standard with upgraded internals every year lol
