The fact that Apple is readying a new version of its iPhone for this year is certainly not news. However, it’s not clear yet what name the new iPhone will have.
According to Telecoms Korea, Apple will likely name its new smartphone “iPhone 4G”. Some “internal sources” claim that KT (South Korea’s second largest mobile carrier) has already signed a deal with Apple for releasing the iPhone 4G sometime in June – when the handset should also be launched worldwide.
Reportedly, the iPhone 4G will feature “two camera modules for video-call services”, improved battery lifetime, and possibly some sort of mobile TV service (although this is probably for Korea only).
A test model of the iPhone 4G could be made available via KT in April or May.
I’m really not sure about this 4G naming – it can’t actually mean that the new iPhone features 4G connectivity (since KT doesn’t have a LTE network yet), so why would Apple choose to name the handset like this?
