The iPhone 5 Spec Sheet
 
 

The Apple iPhone 5 is coming. When? Some rumors say September and others claim that we will have to wait for October. The iPhone 5 might not come alone. A simplified and more affordable iPhone 4S is also rumored. The more interesting device is though of course the new premium iPhone. Below we put together the potential iPhone 5 spec sheet. The listed iPhone 5 specifications are based on rumors and components that surfaced that Apple could potentially use in the iPhone 5. There are explanations about how we derived at some of the iPhone 5 specifications below the spec sheet. Feel free to comment and make suggestions. We will update the spec sheet going forward.

The only item on the current version of the iPhone 5 spec sheet that is pretty much sure is the A5 dual-core CPU upgrade. 

We believe that Apple will offer a new screen on the iPhone 5. We picked the new 4-inch display with 1,280x720px resolution and 367ppi that Toshiba announced in May. This screen is bigger and has a higher ppi than the current iPhone 4 Retina Display. Obviously there are some software adaption issues with this resolution, but this is by far the coolest smartphone screen available. 

The camera needs an upgrade to just match the Android competition. Therefore 8MP sounds reasonable. Maybe Apple also will support FaceTime HD on the iPhone 5. An upgraded 0.9MP front camera is necessary for that. The Dual-LED flash for the iPhone 5 got rumored a while ago.

The measurements of the iPhone 5 are based on the leaked silicone cases that appeared last week. These cases support the rumors about a thinner, wider and taller iPhone 5.

If Bluetooth 4.0 or NFC functionality will be in the iPhone 5 is really up in the air. We saw all versions rumored. It is very possible that the iPhone stays with Bluetooth 2.1+EDR.

The iPhone 5 will also not be supporting 4G (LTE) this year. The 4G market is just not big enough yet for Apple. We believe that the iPhone 6 in 2012 will be a LTE handset.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
