Both AppleInsider and Mac Rumors are posting excepts today from a Chinese iPhone fan site – Weiphone. One commenter on Weiphone claims to have used prototypes of Apple’s next-gen iPhone. His purported familiarity comes courtesy of a friend working at Hon Hai Precision, the Foxconn subsidiary manufacturing all current iPhones.
Okay, this report is a bit of a stretch and should be taken with a large dose of skepticism. Nonetheless, it makes for interesting reading. If the original poster’s claims are to be believed, the new iPhone will contain the following features:
- 600MHz CPU Speed (up from 400MHz)
- 256MB RAM (up from 128MB)
- Digital Compass and FM
- 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus
- 32GB size
- No major changes in battery, screen and external casing.
