iPhone 4th gen

The most talked about news nowadays about Apple is its rumoured ‘iSlate’ tablet device. The hype surrounding the device has been so much that we almost forgot about the upcoming 4th-gen iPhone. Now fresh rumours have surfaced in South Korea that the next-gen iPhone could arrive as early as April 2010, with some awesome new features like a snazzy OLED display, and video-chat capability along with a much faster experience and power flexibility.

The information was published by the newspaper, The Korea Times, which claims to have heard the same from carrier KT Telecom – who also happens to be Apple’s current carrier in South Korea. According to them, the faster performance of the phone may be attributed to a new dual-core processor. If true, this could be the first time a smartphone uses a dual core processor. While no specifics are known, the iPhone 4G may be powered by a new ARM Cortex A9 CPU under development.

A complaint that came all last 3 iPhones has been the lack of an option for removing the battery easily. The 4G version may seek to address this issue and a removable battery is touted as being highly likely. This would also mean the use of extra after-market batteries to get more usage time. The inclusion of a front-facing camera for video calling, along with a high-performance main camera is expected..A launch window of June 2010 is expected and KT may get to try out the new iPhone with their corporate clients as early as in April.
