Apple iPhone 5 is making headlines long before it is launched. Rumors of all kinds are doing the rounds. People are so much fascinated by the Apple smart phone that they are always awaiting the launch of new versions. There is another angle to it. Apple competitors especially Samsung, HTC and Motorola are launching so much improved and better smart phones that Apple fans also expect the Cupertino based tech giant to fast track the launch of the next generation iPhone.
Samsung and HTC have taken the smart phone war to an altogether new level. They are launching smart phones with huge screens, great resolution and processors and different memory options. Apple on the other hand has stuck to the idea of launching one iPhone variant every year.
This is the reason that Apple fans want the next generation iPhone very early. The iPhone brand may be the world leader in popularity and in sales counts. But it is yet to have many necessary features that its competitors have. Get through the rest of the article to see a pick of features that we all crave to see on the next major iPhone upgrade.
Apple fans are expecting much more for their next Apple phone. Besides bigger screen they want the Cupertino based tech giant to add a microHDMI port on its iPhone. Apple introduced full 1080p video output on iPhone 4S. However, users need to spend $39 to buy Apple’s Digital AV to send HD video to a TV monitor. If iPhones come with microHDMI out, one will only have to buy a $5 cable to connect the device with a TV. But Apple currently has a nice AirPlay Mirroring feature for streaming contents. But it should be far great if the device has HDMI out as well.
A latest Morgan Stanley report has given some credible insight into the next generation iPhone. The report hinted that iPhone 5 will be slimmer when it arrives later this year and could include a quad-mode chip from Qualcomm that would allow for 3G and LTE functionality across all “network flavors.” Though the report suggested that Apple will remain impervious to a broader decline in consumer demand throughout the technology industry through the release of its third-generation iPad in the first half of 2012 and the launch of a thinner iPhone later this year, analyst Katy Huberty wrote in a note to investors detailing takeaways from a recent trip to Asia.
One more improvement that Apple fans want to see in the next generation iPhone is NFC. Near Field Communication (NFC) is really making rounds today. Most of key Android tablets come with the NFC technology. It is actually a kind of bar-code replacement feature that helps users make payments at check-outs easily. Data transfer between NFC-enabled devices is also highly efficient.
But the one thing that Apple fans are seeking to see in their new iPhone 5 is 4G compatibility. Most of the top Android smart phones come with 4G compatibility and Apple is expected to follow the suit in this case. Right now, almost all high-end Android phones come with 4G LTE compatibility. But Apple, though named its recent iPhone versions like ‘4’ and ‘4S,’ has not yet implemented 4G antenna inside its flagship smartphone. Most likely, iPhone 5 will be a 4G LTE gadget. Fortunately, Apple has iPhone deals with both Verizon and AT&T, the leading 4G LTE service providers in the country.
