We have seen countless rumors on iPhone 5 that it will have an 4 inch screen, smaller dock port, bottom headphone jack. But finally we have seen a video of the rumored iPhone 5 back cover/case. It seems very pretty real, and even the finishing and style looks very Apple-ish.
Check out the video and determine for yourself. I really think it looks pretty good, hope we will see iPhone 5 very soon.
iPhone 4’s Camera is still one of the best in Mobile Phone market, no doubt the picture quality is the best. But one of the weakest point of the camera is the flash. Although Flash helped in night/dark photography on iPhone 4, but it almost always overexpose the picture or cause the photo to have a very white patch in the top area of the photo.
Thus the next iPhone, iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 is rumored to have Camera and Flash separated, thus to reduce the overexposure and hopefully take better night photos. Below is a mock up of iPhone 4S with Camera and Flash separated by Apple.pro.
You might be new to thisismynext, but no, they are actually started up by previous Engadget team, Joshua Topolsky, Nilay Patel, Paul Miler and more. I’m kind of a fan of them, and this is their new temporary home. Put that aside for now, they have came out with the above iPhone 5 mock-up based on some source which they think is quite reliable.
Yes, it might be a totally new design, below are the summarize points:
Totally New Design, or not…: iPhone 4 have gotten quite a few bad comments on antenna and easily broken glass. So we might not be surprise Apple might wanna do a redesign of it.. But if you look closely at the mock-up, it looks very similar to iPod Touch’s design… So are we getting a similar to iPod Touch iPhone 5?
Gesture Sensitive Home Button: It is reported that Home Button will be bigger and will take in gestures, this is really quite new… I’m not really sure what kind of gestures it might understand. Swiping? Pushing? Holding on? Who knows?
No Bezel: I’m quite surprise bezel is removed! It means that Apple’s manufacturing technology is very high, else it might be very hard for them to achieve.
Larger Screen: Of course, without the bezel, we will be getting a larger screen at 3.7inch.
Inductive Charging: Honestly, I doubt this, inductive charging are not very environmental friendly. It wastes quite alot of extra energy to charge the same iPhone, so I doubt it as Apple is always looking at how green can they go.
Hidden earpiece & mouthpiece: Both of it are behind the glass, and not visible, given it’s Apple it is highly possible. I like it.
NFC: Maybe or may not come
Global radio Chips: Supports both CDMA and GSM
How do you think about the next iPhone you are getting? I think it is not bad in hardware design, how I’m more interested in seeing what we will be getting on iOS 5. Hope to get something totally new.
If the above iPhone 5 is the up and coming iPhone 5, then we will be seeing 64GB in iPhone 5! Finally! iPod Touch and iPad has been having 64GB of Storage for quite some time, so finally we will be getting 64GB on iPhone 5.
Do you really need 64GB?
Before my 32GB iPhone 4, I was holding on to a 16GB iPhone 3G, and I though why will I need 32GB? But after having 32GB in our iPhone 4… I feel that I don’t have enough space!! It might be due to the quality of the video and photos iPhone 4 can take. Plus the growing numbers of very well-produced podcast and iTunes U videos!
So if you ask me if you need an 64GB iPhone 5? Ask yourselves if you watch movie or podcast on your iPhone, if you do… 64Gb won’t be a bad choice!
Difference between iPhone 5 and iPhone 4?
By the way, you will realise one difference in the iPhone 5, there are no more silver ring around the back camera lens, but everything else seems to be almost the same from the video.
Check out the below video on the rumored iPhone 5:
This mock up looks like iPhone 3GS with Aluminum backing? So will iPhone’s design go back to iPhone 3GS-like? To be honest, I don’t think so, at least not for iPhone 5. I don’t think Apple will change their design so soon, but who knows? iPad 2 have a changed in design although iPad is only out for 1 year.
Why Apple might not go back to Glass backing like iPhone 4?
Remember our legendary White iPhone 4? Due to the white backing, iPhone 4 have light leaks and flash issue
Glassgate – some iPhone 4 users dropped their phone and cracked the backing as the back of iPhone 4 is not as strong as the screen. Results shows that iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G are more durable than iPhone 4
Unified Looks for all Apple Product – Apple Macbook Pro, iPads and iPod Touch all have aluminum backing or full-body, thus it will be a more unified look for iPhone to have it too?
No one knows for sure what we will be getting for iPhone 5, so let’s wait and see!
iPhone 5 won’t be release by Apple, not at least by June. But iPhone 5 Chinese Clone is already out in the market, and it looks really like iPhone.
The body of the Clone, looks like iPhone, it even have a microphone beside its headphone jack which is newly added in iPhone 4. The OS that it is running seems to be like Android as it has slight lag, and don’t really look like native iOS. But what is interesting is that the Apps it is running seems like iPhone Apps.
Check out the video of the Chinese iPhone 5 Clone:
iPhone 4 is till now still the best Multi-Media Smartphone in Market, having the best Smartphone camera and the most user-friendly media software, iPod. So what can Apple improve for the next generation of iPhone?
Now we know… iPhone 5, is iPhone AIR, so light you can feel any weight and best of all, all iPhone 4 feature will still be there!
