This just in: AppleiPhoneApps.com is claiming to have the system specs for the upcoming iPhone 2009. A lot of what they have leaked is old news, but there are some juicy new morsels in there as well. Here are the specs;

-32GB and 16GB to replace current capacities

-$199 and $299 price-points to be maintained

-3.2 Megapixel camera

-Video recording & editing capabilities

-Ability to send a picture & video via MMS

-Discontinuation of the metal band surrounding the edge of the device

-OLED screen

-1.5X The battery life

-Double the RAM and processing power

-Built-in FM transmitter

-Apple logo on the back to light up

-Rubber-tread backing

-Sleeker design

-Built-in compass

-Revolutionary combination of the camera, GPS, compass, and Google maps to identify photo and inform about photo locations.

-Turn by turn directions

-July 17th, 2009 release date

If true, the new iPhone is going to be a real beast of a smartphone. Double the RAM and processing power of the current 3G should make the iPhone 2009 the most powerful smartphone on the market by a wide margin. How they've managed to do that, and increase the battery life by 50% is a mystery to me. I can believe the July 17th release date and everything else, but I'm not sure I believe they've managed to cram twice the power into the iPhone, make it sleeker, and give it a longer-lasting battery.

Then again, this is Apple we're talking about here.

AppleiPhoneApps.com claims to have picked this information up from a "source who is closely connected to Apple's hardware development team". They claim to have checked their sources credentials and found him reputable, but they cannot guarantee that these rumors are all true. I suppose we'll just have to wait and see. Until then, these rumors should give the Apple fanboys in the audience a lot to obsess over for the next couple of days.
