The iPhone 5 itself is *rumored* as of now, and now, the rumors about iPhone 6 have started doing the rounds. But no, they are not that revealing. Just the modem, it’s going to be LTE it seems. iPhone 5 is supposed to be a global phone by incorporating a dual mode qualcomm chipset that includes CDMA as well as GSM.Also, iPhone 5 is *rumored* to launch only fall, many sources have confirmed this. Here’s what rumors for iPhone 6 are like :
Back in February, Qualcomm unveiled it’s next generation of chipsets, including the MDM9615. This chip will provide enhancements in modem performance, power consumption, board area and BOM expense, exactly what Apple is looking for in its devices. The 9615 will support LTE (FDD and TDD), DC-HSPA+, EV-DO Rev-B and TD-SCDMA. This single chip is likely what we will all know as the A6 processor, and will be available in late 2011, perfect timing for Apple to start testing and ready them for production.
So, are you even remotely surprised or excited ? I think it’s the right path for the Jebus phone. LTE would really make it WiFi independent . So, let’s wait and see how true these rumors are. Gruber would like to comment on this, perhaps ?
