What to expect from the new iPhone 4G?

Posted by on Jun 04, 2010 | Leave a Comment

Some information of new iPhone 4G has been leaked even for some time, the details have been kept under secret wraps. As per expectation, through the new iPhone 4G, Apple will be bringing the latest and hottest in technology. Many of us have expectation, but what to expect from the new iPhone 4G?

It is known that iPhone will have touch-sensitive casing. The consumer will be allowed to use the casing for controlling games without using a thumb, or any other finger, over the on-screen action by this iPhone. A lot of people quite literally lost for words because they have confirmed that the very much talked about and speculated about Apple iPhone 4G will be in stores on June 7 or June 21, as per announcement made by AT&T.

What you can expect to see in the new iPhone? Some points are given below:

  • A new case design

The leaked images of iPhone which circulated in April have confirmed the device will have a quite different design to the iPhone 3GS though people were suspicious of the ‘leaked’ next-gen iPhone. The back is flat, the sides have an iPad-like metal surround, and the volume buttons are separated rather than being combined as a rocker switch.

  • Improved camera

An update to the iPhone’s camera is almost a given. Reports were being circulated that the iPhone’s camera resolution would be upped to 5-megapixels, as far back as December. More recently, devs digging into the iPhone SDK have unearthed references to HD video recording, suggesting the video-capture capabilities of the device will rival those of the Flip HD.

  • Front-facing camera

Icons and commands are contained relating to video chatting, perhaps confirming the long-standing rumour that iChat will make its way to the iPhone by the iPhone SDK. A new iPhone advert that features a mother and daughter using iPhones for a video chat has been helmed by Sam Mendes, as per claim of the recent reports.

  • An improved screen

It’s looking increasingly likely that iPhone screen will boast a 960-by-640-pixel resolution, blowing away existing models and providing a ‘print quality’ 320ppi density will be boasted by the new iPhone. This will not only leapfrog the Nexus One (252ppi) but make Apple’s new iPad (132ppi) look a little rough by comparison for consuming text.

  • New iPhone price

If Apple aiming to expand its Smartphone market shares, then the iPhone 4G will drop in price, was claimed by a Screen Digest analyst. There’s some precedent here, given the aggressive pricing of the iPad, although with Sterling continuing to weaken against the US dollar, British customers are unlikely to benefit.

  • An Apple processor

An Apple-branded processor inside have been revealed by Tear-downs of leaked iPhones. Though, there is the possibility that the iPhone will contain similar processor to the one that powers the iPad. If so, expect apps on the new device to fly, due to a huge performance boost.

  • A micro-SIM slot

Rather than a regular sized unit, a micro-SIM is used by the iPad Wi-Fi + 3G, and since Apple tends to share technology across devices where possible, the new iPhone should follow suit – a claim given extra weight by the fact the device Gizmodo ‘acquired’ had a micro-SIM slot.

  • A bigger battery

The new iPhone’s front panel is thinner than the iPhone 3GS’s, meaning there’s more room for a battery and a bigger battery means more time between charges. A 16% increase in capacity should be seen by the next-generation iPhone’s battery, as per MacRumors.

  • iPhone OS 4.0

When Steve Jobs unveiled iPhone OS 4.0 back in April, he said it would ship this summer. Unless the entire event was an elaborate practical joke, it is safe to say the new iPhone will ship with iPhone OS 4, bringing it out-of-the-box multitasking support for third-party apps, a unified Mail inbox, springboard folders, and more.

  • A new name

Having eschewed the mobile industry’s penchant for giving phones bizarre, impossible-to-remember names, Apple itself came under a little criticism for the awkward ‘iPhone 3GS’ moniker. Pundits are divided on whether we will be calling the next iPhone the iPhone 4G or iPhone HD although if Apple settles on the latter this will make for a confusing App Store, what with the rash of ‘HD’ apps for iPad.
