The micro-SIM got you a thin iPhone 4 – and now the nano-SIM could get you a thinner iPhone 5.
From what we heard recently, Apple might in all probability release the next version of the iPhone 5 as a thinner model than all the predecessors. Of course, this does mean a great leap for smartphone technology. But how come do these smartphones come so thin?
G&D – the first company to manufacture the SIM-card – has come out with nan-SIM cards which can also be used with normal mobile phones using adapters. This could very well impact the way Apple bases its iPhone 5 design.There are rumors spreading already about Apple actually having produced an iPhone 5 with a larger screen and then scrapping it months before the release of iPhone 4S this October. We are not sure about all this yet, but the basic idea seems to be simple – if iPhones are going to go for the nano-SIM, the iPhone could get really thinner.
A thin smartphone definitely is a great advantage. Smartphones these days are large – and they are not that great in pockets. A thinner smartphone would definitely be a great handy solution. The thin iPhone 5 would probably have a more powerful processor (hinting at A6) and a very powerful battery too – despite being thin.
Considering the trend though, we guess Apple should be working on iPhone 5 and bringing it out quite soon this time.
It took a little over a year and a half for the iPhone 4S to appear after the iPhone 4. The iPhone 4S marked the entry of Siri – the voice assistant and also the iOS 5 and iCloud features.
iPhone 5 – we guess – would not be heavily different from the iPhone 4S software, considering the strides the iPhone 4S has made, but only time will tell about Apple’s design plans for its next gen iPhone.
The iPhone 5 rumors have already started spreading like wildfire – much like iPad 3, which is expected to be out by late next year.
