Apple rumored to be testing a quad-core iPhone with a 720 display
posted by Charlene S. / Dec 06, 2011, 8:56 PM
Macerkopf also states that Apple is testing several different screen resolutions that are higher than the current resolution of 960x640. Specifically, it says that Apple is testing a 1280x720 display and a 1440x800 display. The first is seen in some Android phones, so it is entirely plausible. The second is somewhat of an odd ratio, but with Apple, you never know.
Obviously, coming off the release of the iPhone 4S, these are very early rumors. It will be interesting to see if any of these speculations end up holding any water in the future.

Ewww. If the iPhone looked like that, I wouldn't buy it. Wait I'm a "droid boy"! I wouldn't buy one anyway. lol jk. But cool features though. This next iPhone will be some type of "MUNSTA" on the scene. It probably will be here in May 2012.

Who cares? It'll probably be another 14 months before you see another iPhone launched. LOL Besides haven't you seen the Samsung commercial? The next big thing has already launched. "I could never get a Samsung, I'm creative." "Dude, you're a barista."

For Apple's sake I hope this rumor is true.

If the rumor is false, Apple is going to see a leveling out of their sales. Especially if there is no LTE radio included in the handset specs. 2012 required specification for high-end handsets is going to be 4 cores, 4+ inch 720p retina-spec screen, 8+ mp high-end camera and LTE radio.

yea i think those specs make sense. I am hoping when i upgrade from my rather troublesome Thunderbolt at the end of next year, I will have a chance to grab a phone with some substantial specs similar or higher than that.

Are you serious? The 4s was barely different from the 4, hardly an upgrade, and people flocked to it. I know people who paid full price to upgrade early from essentially the same phone. Apple's cult of personality can survive several false starts in a row. They'll have to fall behind the competition a lot further than they are now before the faithful defect.

yea, but what exactly would be the benefit of a quadcore on the iphone? I could see a reduced 22mm dual core for the battery benefit + extra power, but the OS itself has no use for dual core as it is. It still doesnt have true multitasking, and the reason why it probably never will, was hinted at in Victors article about android's lagginess. this is just another crap rumor.

Agreed,the phone is still almost a year away and the usual next apple iphone is going to have this and that rumours are being circulated by either apple or deluded fanboys to create the pr craze. This article also failed to say that apple is testing 1080p 3d projector technology for the next iphone as we speak,as well as a leg massaging vibration function for in your jeans pocket,a finger warming heated screen for cold winter days ,holographic photo projections from the screen as well as a halogen bulb to the rear for making toast and helping to make camp fires

It's not going to have a quad-core depending on when it gets released.. Apple is not going to go with something that it's not completely comfortable with and if this phone comes out anytime before the 4S did last year, it's doubtful that it's going to have a quad core because the technology is going too fast and is probably going to lead to some problems...especially with LTE. Apple also doesn't need a quad core CPU with it's current OS. Guaranteed the most of the people who buy the iPhone 4S know that it has a dual core, or even care that it has a dual core CPU...and GPU.

You are so right on this one. I just bought the Iphone 4s. But I really like Android. Just saw read a review on the ICS os. I am going to have buyers remorse. My thinking was to buy the Apple and sell it on EBay when I fancy a 2012 release of an ICS flavored green robutic phone.

If you have an LTE phone, you get your data plan doubled for no additional charge (2Gb becomes 4Gb for the same $30/month). There is also supposed to be an 'unlimited' handset LTE data (no tethering) plan for $50/month.

No, there is no unlimited with LTE phone, unless you were grandfathered in - 50.00 buys you 10GB, though, and if you unlock the tethering option use a SQLITE editor, then you can tether with it, too.
