iPhone 5 specs leaked by Foxconn employee?


The iPhone 4S was released in October 2011, which was just four months ago. During those four months, not much has been said about the next iteration of Apple’s smartphone hit; today, though, that changes.

A source from Foxconn leaked a few specs about the iPhone “5” today, and they’re probably true, considering that they aren’t outrageous. Also, at least two prototypes have been seen by this Foxconn employee, and both of them are different. I would bet money that at least a couple of these rumored specs turn out to be true.

  • The next iPhone will have at least a 4-inch screen. This was on both of the devices, so expect this to come to fruition.
  • The long-rumored, iPod touch-esque teardrop shape isn’t going to show up in the next generation, either.
  • Both devices, however, do not share the same form factor as the iPhone 4/4S.

Rumor has it that the new iPhone will actually be released this summer, which kind of comes as a surprise to me. Since the iPhone 4S was released in October, I would’ve expected the same release timeframe for this year.
