Concept Video Shows The iPhone 5 In ActionBy: Shaylin Clark - May 23, 2012
By now you’re probably aware of all the rumors zipping around about what Apple’s next iPhone (probably not really the “iPhone 5″) will look like. Several recent reports have apparently confirmed that the new iPhone will be getting a taller display. Other reports have suggested that a smaller dock connector is also in the works, along with 4G LTE connectivity and a better camera.
Of course, if you want to see all those new features in action (assuming they’re actually coming to the new iPhone), you’ll probably have to wait until October. On the other hand, if you want to see a concept video that shows what some of those new features might look like, then today’s your lucky day. The video shows the new iPhone’s 3.95-inch screen, plus a couple other goodies. Check it out below:
Now, the speaker all the way around the outside of the iPhone is probably not going to happen. And replacing the standard dock with a Thunderbolt connector is certainly out – after all, only the most recent models of Mac have Thunderbolt ports, and Apple isn’t likely to limit the iPhone by replacing the dock connector with one. On the other hand, the illuminated home button is pretty neat, and an improved camera is pretty likely. All in all, it’s a pretty cool mock-up. Unfortunately, we’ve got several months yet before we know how close to reality it is (or isn’t).
