iPhone 4S coming with 8MP camera by OmniVision, no LTE, production to start in August?

Unfortunately, just in line with previous rumors circulating the web, Digitimes reaffirms that 4G LTE connectivity will not come on this year’s expected refresh to the iPhone. Who’s to blame? Reportedly, it’s silicon maker Qualcomm struggling to get sufficient chip yields to integrate LTE radios. But it’s also Apple’s own statement about the design compromises related to installing LTE on the phone, that hint at a 4G iPhone hitting shelves not earlier than 2012. But while September is still way ahead, in just a couple of days Apple is expected to unveil something marking the anniversary of its retail stores, so stay tuned.

Wtf Apple calls this an upgrade? 8 megapixel camera and dual core processor. That's a joke. I heard android is coming out with an 8 core phone and infrared goggles that will kick iPhones ass. Just wait!

The Droid 8 MP camera doesn't take near as good of pictures as the iPhones 5MP. The detail, texture, and lighting all look much better on iPhone. Also, I remember a time when my friends Mac computer had 2 gigs of ram and still whooped my PC specs which were double in ram and had 500mhz better processor. The OS handles its resources much better than Windows (And iOS to Android). I believe iOS 5 is being announced in a month, so we'll see where that goes. One more thing, the Droid X gets a dual core processor and a slightly better screen and no one cares to mention that minor upgrade that Fandroids are freaking out over?

Verizons network ist supposed to be nation wide until 2013, so that is about perfect. I live in a area that probably wont see it until 2012 or 2013. Having said that im not an iphone user anyway. Android all the way..

the difference being the DroidX-2 is a phone among many. If you want android you can go to any of the dozens of flavors. The iphone is the only phone that runs iOS and is a "premium" phone. You have one and only one choice a year for a new iOS phone. For it to stay a "premium" phone it should not just raise the bar slightly from the last iteration of iphone it should raise the bar for all phones, the way that android keeps doing every few months.

How are the Android Phones raising the bar? The Thunderbolt is a slightly modified EVO..... I am a VzW employee and even i won't lie about that. In regards of screens Apple and Samsung have the best screens. If we are to argue about Premium just by materials alone the iPhone 4 is higher quality due to stainless steel and glass construction vs the plastic of most android phones. I am sorry for the longest time Nokia was the best hardware specced phones on the market. The funniest part of all this is any Carrier employee whether tech or sales person will honestly admit that specs mean nothing. Why? Because the apps that run on your device don't tax the system. Also 4G LTE devices are terrible with regards to connectivity. I love watching a thunderbolt buffer a 2 minute clip every 15 seconds while an Ally runs the same clip buttery smooth.

fandroids are hilarious. all this hate and trash talk over a rumor thats not even new. iOS is RUMORED to get its largest overhaul this time around. there really isnt much as far as hardware that needs to be upgraded. wait and see before you trash talk, otherwise you're just contributing to the hype.

With AT&T's LTE being in it's fledgling state and Sprint coming out with LTE in the future, next year's iPhone will be LTE. THis is gonna be better internals and a smoother outside. Like the 3Gs. Apple is following a clear trend, introduce a changed device, refine it, repeat. THough I think Apple is feeling the pressure now from Android I think you'll see them start to do a few more things as far a specs and probably a cheaper entry level iPhone with smaller screen and memory.

I said it before, ill say it again, by the time apple comes out with 4g or 4g LTE, android manufactures will be nearing 5g or almost close to that Iphone: omg i have 4g now i can join with most android phones!! Wee! Android: Sry we are almost moving on to the next lvl 5g baby!! sucks to be you. We'll see you in 2 more years that the time it takes apple to upgrade you right? Iphone: AWWWWW!!well, ill be head to head with you guys in two years! andoid(side comment): Yeah we will have upgraded by then to another generation.

Sorry bro, buy 4G/LTE is what the companies are implementing, it has nothing to do with the phones. I understand what you are saying though. I just can't understand why everyone is on Apple and Android's dick. Why is everyone blowing these OS's and swallowing their wads all day? Here it is plain and simple, both OS's have a dick (phones) and they both blow wads in your face. They both stick equally and taste a little different, but still a wad in your face is a wad in your face. What i'm trying to say is, your gay and both phones do the same thing, aka cum on your face

Don't know yet this news is true?!, Fandroid thought that powerful internal hardware it means the phone it's going to be more fast more powerful lol fandroid remind me windows fan! It's all about OS stabilization and hardware functional in right way with software. ITS APHONE NOT A PC OR MAC!
