Is this what the Apple iPhone 5 will look like?
When it comes to Apple’s next iPhone, the rumor mill never seems to stop producing noise on how the iPhone 5 is going to look like and what hardware it’ll pack. Well, Engadget’s former editor Joshua Topolsky says he has some new information regarding how the next smartphone from Cupertino might look like.
What you see on the left is a mockup designed with the help of all the information and rumors from various sources that Topolsky claims are "not to ignore". While many people expect Apple to pull a “3GS” on the iPhone 5, this mockup screams exactly the opposite. According to those sources, the iPhone 5 will look more like the iPod Touch and the still hard-to-find iPad 2.
Not only that, but the home button is going to double as a gesture area and gestures are almost certainly going to be unleashed in a future version of iOS. The rumors of a bigger screen are confirmed here as well. The iPhone 5 is expected to feature an expanded 3.7-inch screen, covering the device almost edge to edge.
Hardware-wise, the next iPhone is expected to sport the faster A5 processor and an updated 8 megapixel camera, but that’s not something we haven’t heard before. According to Topolsky, Apple has been experimenting a lot with the iPhone 5 and will make the jaws of the people expecting just an iPhone 4S drop.
Whatever the case, we’ll undoubtedly witness how Apple is going to play its cards at the WWDC in July this year.
