Next-generation iPhone hardware details revealed in iOS 6 beta

Updated 4 years ago

Details surrounding Apple’s next-generation iPhone, which is rumored to feature a 640 x 1,136-pixel Retina display that measures 3.95 inches diagonally and a smaller dock connector, have seemingly been revealed by a beta version of iOS 6. According to 9To5Mac, Apple’s next iPhone will be equipped with a Samsung-built 5L8950X ARM processor, offering a slight performance increase over the S5L8940X found in the iPhone 4S and the S5L8945X in the new iPad. It isn’t clear, however, if the chip will be dual- or quad-core, or what the processor’s clock speed might be. The processor is known internally at Apple as the “A5-***,” making it more likely that the chip will be similar to the A5X. The next iPhone will also reportedly feature 1GB of RAM, an increase from 512MB found in the current iPhone model. BGR exclusively reported this past December that a completely redesigned iPhone will launch in the fall.
