Apple iPhone 5 Expectations Know No Bounds; Read What Analysts Want

September 28, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Apple has been keeping a studied silence on the upcoming iPhone 5, even after witnessing the rumor mills go berserk. We have heard a lot about the device that is gearing up for an October release, now let’s try and put together what is expected of the fifth generation iPhone.

It is now your turn to decide if it is impressive enough to push aside the hugely popular Samsung Galaxy S II and the Motorola Droid Bionic.

It is virtually certain that the new iPhone will come with a dual core A5 chip and enhanced performance levels. The new iOS 5 with iMessage is expected to be packed inside.

The iPhone 5 is expected to get a RAM memory upgrade to 1GB -– that is double the memory of its predecessor.

The camera is likely to be an 8 megapixel snapper. Other specs include improved graphics similar to the one in iPad 2, Near Field Communication, voice control and 3G for both GSM and CDMA networks.

Here is more. Chris Whitmore of Deutsche Bank Equity Research has been quoted as saying in a research note that he expects the iPhone 5 to come with aluminum unibody construction, better camera and a slightly larger screen size.

Meanwhile, an analyst at Rodman & Renshaw Ashok Kumar expects better graphics silicon. And, Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray says he expects speech based features for the iPhone 5.

Something is definitely missing from the specs list. You guessed right, it’s the 4G connectivity. Do not waste your time expecting LTE on Apple devices at least until next year, or that’s what we understand from the analysts.

Now tell us, what all do you want your iPhone 5 to do?
