Foxconn, the Taiwanese company that manufactured all of Apple’s iPhones until now, has reportedly received orders for the next generation iPhone (which, if we look at the release dates of the older 3 iPhone models, should be launched sometime in the summer of 2010).
Unfortunately, there are absolutely no details regarding the new features that Apple will include in the 4th generation iPhone.
Maybe the new iPhone will come with a front-facing camera (for video calls), a 1GHz processor, LTE and a higher resolution display (although, if this happens, the old iPhone apps will probably not work with the new smartphone, since they’re made for the 320 x 480 pixels resolution). Or maybe with a hardware QWERTY keyboard? That’s actually hard to believe.
Well, for now we can only wait for more leaked info about the new iPhone to show up, and hope that Apple will deliver a breakthrough device (unlike the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS, which are just updates of the first generation iPhone).
