Since the new iPad comes with Long Term Evolution technology (or LTE ), most analysts point out that the next iPhone5 is likely to incorporate the same chip for mobile communications .
Gene Munster, senior analyst at PierJaffray , has informed Apple’s investors that a cut in production of Qualcomm’s LTE chip could affect the deployment of the new smartphone on the block, which is expected to feature this technology.
The iPhone 5 will surely incorporate 4G LTE technology
According to a report by AppleInsider, iPhone 5 will most likely be launched in October, despite the production cutback of Qualcomm’s new 28nm LTE chip. The analyst believes that the manufacturer has enough experience to meet the production dates that Apple would require.
The chip in question would be Qualcomm’s MDM9615, 28nm for the channel width. Not only is it smaller than the one used in the third generation iPad, but also would make the terminal compatible with many 4G networks , which has been a big problem for the Apple tablet.
Munster ends his analysis by betting that the next smartphone will have a new housing, a better processor, more memory and an even better camera. Interesting, isn’t it?
