iPhone 5 Rumors: A5 CPU, 8MP Camera



We’re a couple months removed from a new iPhone.   That means, we’re right on time for a new load of rumors and speculations.  This latest one comes courtesy of Concord Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, who’s had a pretty good track record for rumors, having correctly pegged some of the iPad 2′s eventual specs.
According to the note Kuo released, the iPhone 5 will only get “slight modifications” from its predecessor.  Much of the external design will remain the same (based on checks with supply chain sources), with most of the changes actually coming in the form of upgraded specs.
Most notable of these features include Apple’s A5 processor (which will reportedly match the performance of the processor on the iPad 2) and an 8.0 megapixel rear camera.  It will also feature a Qualcomm baseband, as well as an improved antenna design.  Sadly, there’s no mention of the expected RAM quantity or the oft-rumored NFC support.
Kuo expects Apple to unveil the iPhone 5 during the Worldwide Developers Conference, which is slated for June 6 to 10 in San Francisco.   Do note that most other rumors contradict this — in fact, they expect the event to be focused on iOS 5 and the OS X 10.7 Lion.
