Lately, the rumor mill has been churning about the imminent iPhone 5. Most peg it as a thinner phone with a bigger screen, offering up a new design for the phone. But Concord Securites' Ming-Chi Kuo has sources that say we shouldn't expect anything more than an iPhone 4 with a spec bump.
He says that the new phone will have the same design as the iPhone 4, continuing to use 512MB of RAM and keeping the 3.5-inch display. It'll get a bump in terms of processing power and probably in the camera department as well, but otherwise it'll stay the same.
Personally, I'm a bit skeptical about this. Such a modest bump would barely warrant an upgrade, and there have been plenty of case leaks that point towards a thinner, redesigned phone.
But hey, who knows! All this should be cleared up in the next couple of weeks when Apple finally unveils whatever it is they've been cooking up.
