In order to remain top in smartphone market, Apple has to work pretty much on its iPhone 5.
The rumors of a thinner framework are a pretty good start. If the Cupertino-based firm really uses in-cell technology that integrates the touch screen into a single display panel, the next iPhone could be as thin as 7.6-mm, about 1 millimeter thinner than its Korean competitor.
Next-generation iPhone should feature an equivalent or better snapper than the Galaxy S3. Apple could either bump up the maximum resolution of the iPhone’s camera, improve the optics to capture better images or both. Additionally, the front-facing camera should also be updated to match the Samsung’s 1.9-megapixel unit.
Behind the screen, the iPhone 5 should have a quad-core chipset to compete directly with the international version of the Galaxy S3. While the North American Galaxy S3 doesn’t come with the quad-core Exynos chipset, quad-core Android handsets are expected to arrive later this year. If Apple doesn’t stick in a quad-core chipset, a higher-clocked dual-core processor should be on the cards.
similarly, 4G LTE connectivity should be available. Bearing in mind that many of the top-selling smartphones in the United States are compatible with these increasingly widespread high-speed wireless networks, Apple should add in this capability to compete effectively.
