The characteristic features of the latest Apple iPhone

The device that comes out in recent times has much less certainty than the Apple iPhone4. In the previous year, one of the Apple engineers managed to forget in a bar a prototype device. Some of the samples lay in the hands of journalists from the blog Gizmodo who photographed them in all possible angles and posted on the internet. But consequently, the Apple smartphone is selected “gizmodovtsev” and made a publication in its blacklist, prohibiting its representatives to attend the presentation of new products.

Some people also believe that the smartphone will be little thinner, like for example it is believed to be look like MacBookAir due to the characteristic thickening of the upper part of the body. However, the fact is the smartphone will be available in two colors – white and black, with no other options.

The screen of the iPhone5 will be bigger than the iPhone 4. 3.5 inches might increase to 3.7 or even 4. Another characteristic feature of the iPhone5 is dual-core chip with frequency of about 1.2 gigahertz. Currently, these chips are primarily used in the second generation iPad tablet. The iPhone5 are supposed to be available in three versions, 16, 32 and 64 gigabytes of internal memory. It is also to be noted that the version of the iPhone5 will be available to work in networks of two standards, such as CDMA and GSM.
