New iPhone 2011: Specs We Want But Won’t Get?

The Verizon iPhone from Apple was announced only yesterday and already we’ve written many articles on it, both before the official news of a February release and afterwards. In one of our articles we looked at the differences between an iPhone on Verizon or on AT&T.

We’ve also looked at how a Verizon iPhone 4 running on a 3G network will need to compete against one of the upcoming 4G network-enabled phones, such as the Motorola Atrix 4G on AT&T. Now we wanted to consider the specs we may have wanted to see on the new iPhone but won’t get just yet.

We’ve already noted that the Verizon iPhone 4 is not LTE 4G enabled which many would like to have seen and Adam Eve over on Gadg has also noted several other features that would be popular on an iPhone 5. One of them is a removeable battery. This is highly unlikely as it doesn’t fit with Apple’s usual stance on this but nevertheless is still something many people would like.

Another great feature would be biometric security whereby a mere finger swipe would be necessary to get into your phone, rather than a password. Also many would like to see the capability of outputting 720p or 1080i HD video, which is not possible with present iPhones. For more ideas check out the Gadg link above.

Alan Ng over on Product Reviews has also looked at a concept design for an iPhone 5. We are likely to see many more of these concepts in future months but this one includes an enhanced Retina Display featuring a backlight and a whopping 10.2-megapixel camera.

We’d be interested to hear what you would like to see on a new iPhone so please feel free to send us your comments about this.

    HelloHello , firs off I love the iPhone 3GS in which I own , I was thinking of getting the iPhone 4 but after reading all reviews on it I decided not to pursue with it as with the aerial problems it has , and that would of been a problem with me as I live in the country ( Australia ) now all the things mention above
    Would definatly be excellent on the upcoming iPhone 5 also it would be good if it could have flash player as I'm always running into this problem when viewing web pages …… Like to also say the iPad is wonderful piece of work and I'm looking forward to the new iPad coming soon .

    I think it should have a TV and radio app with it for free and a 12 megapixel camera, a lot thinner, a wireless charger, I shall think of more… How about a slide keyboard?
