6. A5 Processor
None can compare with the processor an iPhone has. The upcoming iPhone is said to have an A5 dual-core processor for a better performance.
With no press releases given by Apple about the iPhone 5, avid iPhone fans and users are relying on rumors and speculations.

First, there are rumors about Apple providing a bigger screen display. They are taking out the home button. Its front portion is an entire touchscreen display so it could have a more edgy look. It will be similar as that of the iPad but it’s only smaller.
Second rumor would have to be the use of an iOS 5 as the operating system. They’re doing an upgrade with operating system because many iPhone 4 users are complaining about the notification settings and other minor problems.
Third is about the back display of the iPhone. The antenna is already placed at the back and not at the front so the smartphone could have access to a better signal. The structure of the previous iPhone made it hard to get access especially when the phone is being gripped.
Fourth would be the rumor about having no clear winner among communication providers. Yes, there are three mobile carriers from the US that can benefit from the iPhone yet there’s no top contender among the three. Rumor has it that AT & T, Verizon Wireless and Sprint took a portion of the market demand for the 5th generation of the iPhone 5. Each mobile communication provider has not confirmed whether they are the one that could benefit the iPhone 5 the most.

There has been no additional information on the number of cores that this processor has. Many could be questioning Apple’s take on the processor. A5 Dual core processor could be the most ideal processor considering the speed it offers. It has the speed of 1GHZ and a 1G RAM.

1. An 8mp with LED flash camera
All the other smartphones have this feature so it’s a must that the upcoming iPhone should have this feature. If the iPhone will have this feature, it has an edge from the rest of the competition. Iphone users love the image apps that Apple offers. With the 8mp with LED flash camera combined with the different image apps, more and more mobile phone users would rather opt for an iPhone.
The new camera feature is also capable of recording videos that HD with a1080p. The only problem is that Flash player won’t be part of the upcoming iPhone. To support the HD video, they’ve got the HTML, CSS and Java Script.
Another hardware upgrade would be the A5 Dual-core processor chip that has a speed of 1.2 GHz and an additional of 1G of RAM. The speed is as similar as that of the iPad 2. Many are even considering that it’s the Nano version of the iPad. This kind of processor will give way to more demanding apps. Another good thing is that you get to use different apps all at the same time which wasn’t possible with the iPhone 4.
One feature that the new iPhone should have is an upgraded iOS. Thus, the new iPhone should use an iOS 5. The iOs 5 is expected to improve the notification system iPhone has. It will also include more than a hundred new features like the iMessage plus other applications. There’s the Reminders app and Newsstand. These two apps are like Folders and iBooks found in iMac and iPad. The iOS 5 will also provide iPhone users the Assistant. Such feature will provide you your very own personal assistant.

Otherwise, Apple would be beaten by their competition.

Some could no longer wait for their contract to end and they’re willing to pay the termination fee just so they can have their very own iPhone.
Rumors did speculate different things that got people enticed with the upcoming iPhone. Here’s what to realistically expect from the iPhone 5.

The A5 dual core processor means lower battery consumption as well. Your apps are faster as well. You probably don’t get the whole picture. To put it in simpler terms, just imagine you having an iPad but only in a smaller version.
2. 1G RAM
Do you love to multitask? If yes, iPhone 5 could be your next best friend. The increase in Ram will allow you to access different apps altogether. You won’t have to close one app just so you can use another app. Your iPhone wouldn’t have its own version of nervous breakdown even if you handle several apps all at once. The bump in RAM to 1Gb makes it possible.
3. Voice Control System
Typing a lengthy email can be stressful. Creating a text message while both of your hands are full is impossible. Well, it used to be.

The voice control system will be like your assistant. You could ask your iPhone to dial your business partner’s mobile phone. You could also ask your iPhone where the nearest grocery store is.
4. Sprint users will finally get hold of an iPhone. A lot of Sprint users complained why they weren’t able to obtain an iPhone previously. Recently, Sprint announced that the latest iPhone will be able to all Sprint customers. They are ready for it and they have unlimited data plans to offer.

"I'd love to help kickstart continued development! And 0 EUR/month really does make fiscal sense too... maybe I'll even get a shirt?" (there will be limited edition shirts for two and other goodies for each supporter as soon as we sold the 200)
