A new Samsung processor alleged to be in the iPhone 5, another Apple Maps app screenshot leaks
Apple iPhone 5 rumors have been leaking lately as if it's going to be announced at the WWDC in 10 days, rather than September/October, which will mark a year after its predecessor's launch.

The latest comes from a leaked iOS 6 build, allegedly almost in its final stages of development, which reveals both hardware and software secrets about the upcoming new iterations of Apple's mobile iOS and the phone that will carry it.

First off, the Darwin Kernel Version 13.0.0 is listing an ARM S5L8950X processor, which is a Samsung-made CPU with numbering higher than what we currently have in the iPhone 4S (40X) and the new iPad (45X). 

A new Samsung processor alleged to be in the iPhone 5, another Apple Maps app screenshot leaks
It is known internally as A5-*** (the source hid the exact numbers that might be too telling), and a new PowerVR SGX543RC* will be providing the graphical prowess of the next iPhone. Furthermore, the source said that the new iPhone is said to sport 1GB of RAM, double what we have now.

Our bets are on a 32nm dual-core chip similar to what we have in the iPad 2, made in Samsung's huge Austin, Texas factory, but with a scaled down GPU - still a PowerVR SGX543 endeavor, but maybe dual- instead of quad-core, and with lower frequencies, as the chip wouldn't need to power north of 3 million pixels, as on the new iPad.

Moreover, some new details about the software part of the equation emerged from this source. Namely this is another screenshot of the alleged new Maps application, which will ditch Google for a homebrew Apple navigational and mapping solution. It resembles what we've already seen, so there is a chance this is indeed the basis of what will become the final Maps app in iOS 6.

or it could just be from everyone since its a troll post. :)

I think he meant "where would apple be without samsung parts and processors".

They would probably be crapdragon infused like pretty much everything else thats not samsung

Samsung and Apple are not only competitors to each other but also customers. its just like AT&T and Verizon. Verizon is AT&T's biggest competitor but also its biggest costumer. Verizon uses AT&T's internet service.true story.

That makes total sense. I am sure that AT&T uses Verizon and or Sprint fiber too. It is called redundancy.

yea apple will do ok with ARM/Intel processors, the panel from sony & LG and finally value will go down and their share will be about the same. Samsung's luck started with android and not because they are smart, its because of android. you ever notice they had not much successs with bada and their cheap phone before android was popular. and please man their phones are plastic at least put some metal or special materials

Apple planned to do that with the new Ipad, but why they couldn't do that?

they just could not get ready enough panels so they had to go with plan B

oh really. Samsung wasnt a huge company before android? wow, coulda fooled me.

no luck with bada? They are selling at a much higher rate than WP7 without spending tons on advertising like WP7. Bada sets sell higher than iphones in some countries.

their " plastic" is more durable than your "special materials". light weight, thinner, and stronger.

know your facts before you troll.

"Bad a sells higher than iphone in some countries"

Care to back this up with facts or are you doing your usual remix of facts.

He's right that android has led to Samsung success in the smartphone market. Samsung has been around for a while, but Rim, Nokia and others were beating. Now they are hands down THE android smartphone maker. They lead in android market share and profit.

Bad a isn't even on the map.

no, its true. go use google and find it. there was a blurb about on on PA towards the end of last year if I remember right. It may or may not still be true, but it was at one time. Dude, the iphone barely sells in many western european and asian countries. It really only sells in America and a few other choice spots. Obviously Bada's low price has a lot to do with it, but in the real world outside of your fanboy head, price matters.

I still wouldnt buy it.. lol.

BTW, Samsung has been a massive supplier of phones and smart phones for a very very long time. you need to go look up a bit of history before you spout off.

exactly deeoh. samsung makes a ton of products outside of phones. they are simply trying to outsell the iphone/ipad in america. google bought out motorola, and that is a conflict of interests to manufacturers who rely on android. thus bada and other os's. im sure bada will be integrated to tsion? or whatever it was called

don't worry, Apple would have sales records even with iPhone 5 with single core and old LCD ;)

Lets see...

Samsung makes their own screens, own chips, own ram...

I have to agree with this.

Samsung is one of the few phone manufactures where most of their parts are made by the manufacture.

i always wondered why they change that to "kings/queens english" depending on the monarch. Do they get to change parts of the language they dont like? Switch the meanings of words to their pleasure? Or is it just a form of respect in slang?

yeah,, too much ridiculous patent lawsuit from apple, it is indicate that apple can't do health competition. so apple should admit they can't make a better phone like samsung did. especially Galaxy S3

31. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


they are adding 3d navigation and a 4 inch screen. neither is mind blowing. But what do you expect, apple only does small upgrades, they dont shake their products up with big changes. Sad fact, just like every other over hyped rumor mill, 70% of these rumors are false, if not more.

when have already discuss millions of times about the iphone 4s..lets move on. we are almost at the new iphone release. please dont bring the past. the SGSIII is now.. if you dont have any argument to defend the SGSIII without bring in an iphone 4s relased 8 months ago.. then move go back to OCT 2011 and find a forum to discuss the iphone 4s

47. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


really?? the sales seem to contradict that, gallito.

Besides, American SGS2 owners havent even had their device for a year, which means they wont be eligible for any discount on any carriers if they used their upgrade for the SGS2. If they buy it, they are paying full retail.

a phone upgrade is meant for every OTHER generation. SGS1 owners are meant to get the SGS3, SGS2 owners are meant to get the SGS4.
3GS owners bought the i4s. The only reason any i4 owners bought it, is because there was nearly 18 months between the i4 and i4s.

Yet, the SGS3 is still outpacing every apple product and it just launched.

see remix. you are confusing carriers pre orders with consumer purchase... but I agree and disagree with you.. agree on that the SGSIII is the upgrade for the OG Galaxy owners just like the iphone 4S was to the owners of the iphone 3Gs.. but when the iphone 4S was released you and the rest of your fandroid crews were saying exactly what I am now saying for the SGSIII.. but fandroids were running their mouth saying that the exact phone was released.. now is your turn. the SGSIII is not worth upgrading unless you have a 2 year old Android. as there is nothing new under the hood of the Galaxy that's were I disagree...

No article should have Apple and Samsung in the same title as those fanboys start coming and start fighting.
You do like a company, that's good for you.. maybe the other person likes the other one, why the hell do you want that everyone should follow what you like..

According to me both Apple and Samsung are awesome companies, both of them have their own different style, one represents the iOS and the other represents Android and they both make the top shelf smartphone

Remember guys, you do have the right to have your own personal favorites but that does not mean that you will start insulting the other competitors, they both are really good companies and that is the only reason that why they have got so far from other companies..!!

Be fair dude, people on both sides rip on other companies. I think Apple puts out good products, I dislike their business practices more than anything. That is my opinion and preference. If you like iOS and dislike Android, good for you, it is your right.

Really, Sangeet said it best........
