New details on the next iPhone’s specs: 32GB, digital compass and more

There’s still nothing official about the third-generation Apple iPhone, but more and more rumors are starting to appear.

The latest rumor comes from China, providing an insight on what the new iPhone might bring, hardware-wise.

According to this thread from the WeiPhone forum, the next iPhone (model number MB717LL) will rely on a 600MHz processor and 256MB of RAM.

Moreover, the new smartphone should also feature: FM radio, digital compass, 32GB of internal memory and a 3.2MP autofocus camera (it’s not the first time we hear about the 3.2MP camera). And, needless to say, the device will run on iPhone 3.0 OS.

Sadly, it looks like there will be no major changes when it comes to the external case, the display and the battery. Not that there’s something wrong with iPhone 3G’s case, screen and battery, but I think that a fresh design and a display with a higher resolution would be more than welcome. After all, most high-end touchscreen phones now have 480 x 800 pixels screens.

Of course, none of the above specs are confirmed. Let’s hope there’ll actually be much more coming from Apple – the Cupertino company will probably announce the new iPhone during WWDC 2009 (June 8 – 12), at about the same time with the Palm Pre and Microsoft’s new, mysterious Zune.

    This was an AppleInsider story, not a MacRumors story:

    Hey Samuel.

    It's not always easy to track down the original source of a story.

    Anyway, for the sake of fairness, I've added a link to AI.

    Battery usage looks like it is going downhill. I had to buy an iPWR.com battery charger with the all-caps promo code of MODO

    Well,

    AppleInsider themselves are pretty tight on goodwill when it comes to crediting the source.

    On at least one occasion, maybe more, I'm sure they sourced the article through this site, but then used the original source I credited here, as if they found it themselves.

    Kind of the same thing macrumors just did, isn't it?

    Hey James.

    Sure, the actual available memory would be somewhere around 30GB. But that would still be a good thing, right? :)
