Apple A4 processor found in next-gen iPhone

Apple A4 processor found in next-gen iPhone
About less than a month ago Gizmodo bought the lost Apple iPhone 4G (stands for 4th generation) prototype and found many interesting things about the handset. However, there are some aspects of it that remained unclear, for example what hardware is powering it, or what resolution the display has (although it was said to be higher than the one of current-gen iPhones).

Thanks to today's appearance of the next-gen iPhone in Vietnam, we now know what processor is hiding inside the hot smartphone. Engadget reports that the label "APL0398" found on the chip is also found on the Apple A4 processor of the iPad, so we now have a pretty solid reason to believe that the fourth iPhone will be powered by a 1GHz microprocessor, as it was once speculated. Now that's what we call good news!

Additionally, Pocketnow suggests that the screen of the phone, showed in the hands-on video, uses a new technology, probably AMOLED, due to its seemingly great viewing angles. However, we would rather place our money on Apple having used an LCD IPS screen, as in the iPad, since it also provides a very good viewing angle. Fortunately, there isn't much left until we know for sure...
