iPhone 5: Will Redesign Disappoint You?

Following on from our report yesterday, hitting a roundup of rumor and speculation over Apple‘s soon to be unveiled iPhone 5, we stirred up a number of comments on the device’s redesign element. So we thought we would take a look at some of the changes that could be seen come June.

One OSM follower remarked that a slimmer iPhone 5 would not be necessary just an improvement in battery capability. Engadget reported that a completely reshaped handset is more than likely with reports of Apple staff already running test devices.

Another area where there seems to be two conflicting suggestions, comes from the handset’s new processor. Current iPhone 4’s run an A4 CPU, whereas the guys over at T3 have stated that the iPhone 5 could pack an A5 CPU which would bring it into the LG Optimus 2X territory. Different news from itproportal.com has reported that there has also been talk of an A8 or possibly an A9 processor.

As we all know and are probably bored of hearing now, the iPhone 4 suffered with signal issues and in a bid to rectify any recurrence of the “deathgrip” situation, Apple has been rumored to change from its Infineon wireless chipset to Qualcomm in order to elevate connection problems.

On the run up to the month of June, no doubt more rumors will rise in regards to the iPhone 5’s final design. Why not tell us what changes you would like to see, and how Apple can stay at the top of the pack?

    Please dont remove the home button that will not be userfriendly for older people!

      i would like no home button, it would mean a bigger screen..

        Thank You! So many people are complaining about potentially loosing the home button, but the next iphone needs screen size, & speed (among other things) to stay ahead of the pack, & I could care less about the home button if it = a bigger screen.

    I don't think it is a good idea to remove the home botton becasue it is a part of the design which is typical for apple. Or should we now remove the apple from the back of laptops?! Pls keep the button as it is part of the design!
