The Italian Apple.HDblog has posted some pictures of the iPhone 5’s logic board showing that the new device will indeed feature both the new A6 chip, which Apple.HDBlog speculates is “probably” a quad-core processor, and Qualcomm’s (QCOM) MDM9615M LTE modem. The pictures also show that Apple (AAPL) is relying on Hynix for its flash memory, which will surely add fuel to the rumors that Apple has been slowly cutting out Samsung (005930) as a parts supplier.
