Inside the iPhone 5: Light Reading's Sister Company Predicts Components, Design

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 13, 2011 — (PRNewswire) — The next version of the iPhone is predicted to offer a Qualcomm Inc. baseband chip for CDMA and GSM connectivity, a Broadcom Corp. component and a much simpler system integration design, among other new features, according to Light Reading's sister company, UBM TechInsights.

" UBM TechInsights has been doing extensive iPhone investigating -- delving into previous design wins and market technology trends," notes Sarah Reedy, Senior Reporter, Light Reading Mobile.  "Based on their research and the fact that Apple has reportedly already ordered key components, the team has made predictions regarding the new version's baseband chipset, processor, connectivity, camera, display and more."

Included in UBM TechInsight's forecasts is an expectation that Samsung will continue to make the A5 processor for Apple, despite legal wrangling between the cell phone rivals.  Also, Apple has recently filed patents around OLED touch screens, which could suggest iPhone 5 will include a larger, sharper display, also improving visibility in sunlight and reducing power consumption.
