Rumors of the impending new Apple iPhone device continues to spread across the internets.
Latest rumor stems on the components to be used in the new iPhone model. What we noticed is the inclusion of a 3.2 megapixel camera. Current models of the iPhone (and iPhone 3G) come with a 2.0 megapixel camera. Coming from Digitimes, the article compiled a table of the new iPhone’s component suppliers. Aside to the upgraded camera, Digitimes also highlighted that there will be an initial order of about 5 million units from Apple. Previous rumor suggested an initial order of just 4 million units.
Another set of rumors point towards three new iPhone models coming. The first being the premium of all – beefed up processor and new features like the camera. A second model seems to be a throwback model of the original iPhone, featuring old but well-loved 2.75G technology, EDGE instead of 3G. This will definitely lower the price of the device. A third device is rumored to be produced for the China market. The special version of this device will support the CDMA standards of a carrier in the mainland – effectively allowing Apple to conquer the remaining large market of all. What do you think?
Meanwhile, CrunchGear put up a very interesting article, asking for reader opinion if consumers will line up for the new iPhone. With 30% of iPhone buyers switching to AT&T just to get the device, will the new rumored low-end iPhone be of any interest?
