For instance, iPhone 5 owners can say hello to 4G technology. The previous iPhone units were equipped with 3G. Expect faster data speed with the iPhone 5. Sophisticated functions like video chatting will be faster with the 4G technology. Speculations about the 4G technology are growing stronger because of the rumors that iOS 5 has codes that infer to 4G. There are also talks that Apple hired 4G network engineers in the creation of the iPhone 5.

There are also rumors that imply that iPhone 5 will have a very superior camera, much more superior to the camera of iPhone 4. Analysts have studied the photo using the GPS data, which revealed that the photo was taken in the HQ of Apple. The alleged first photo taken by the iPhone 5 was a picture of a white plate with several pieces of sushi. Upon closer investigation, the plate reveals a reflection of a person holding a small piece of device that resembles a phone. So, the photo couldn’t have been taken by a point-and-shoot camera then uploaded to a mobile phone.

Another supposed unique selling point of the iPhone 5 is that it can be used as a digital wallet.

Other reports on the iPhone 5 have it that it will have a bigger screen than the iPhone 4. It will reportedly sport a 4-inch display.

All of these stories, however, are still rumors. No need to be impatient though. The iPhone 5 will be released in less than two weeks.
