It looks like those rumors that have said that the next version of the unlocked iPhone 4 will be called the iPhone 5 are wrong, and the phone may actually be called the iPhone 4S. There are many different rumors that have been floating around the net about the name of the next iPhone, so it can be a little hard to tell what to believe that this point. The latest info comes from Jefferies and Co. analyst Peter Misek. He stated that the name will be “4S” in a recent site posting. First, the company released their 3G. Then, they released their 3GS. This was surprising at the time, but the phone offered significant upgrades over the previous version of the device.
They also went on to say that the phone would be undergoing a number of very small cosmetic changes, and would also have better cameras on both sides of the phone. Also included in the upgrade would be an A5 dual core processor, along with HSPA+ support. This would mark a number of minor upgrades, similar to the differences that we saw between the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS.
Although Apple has not commented on this rumor, you can bet that they will let it flourish as they usually do with rumors. Apple obviously enjoys the press that they receive, and only shoots down rumors that get out of control in terms of popularity, and they do not want people to start taking untrue rumors as fact.
Hopefully the release of this iPhone version will go a little more smoothly than the release of the previous, which was hampered by various connection problems in the early days of the device. It will be interesting to hear how Apple reacts, if they ever do. Not much is available about the next version of the iPhone 4 unlocked, but some probably will be here soon.
