So with the release of the iPhone 4 in a few weeks. I was wondering what new features Apple could incorporate next into the next iPhone, whenever that may come out.
So I was curious, what do you guys think?

Haha well with 3-d being a huge fad, i bet you could be able to use 3-d glasses with it. maybe video calling will take off? that would be nice. obviously a more sleeker design and probably a faster processor? 64 gig hard drive?

Well, for one, there is a huge chance of it being compatible with Verizon. This year, its rumored that Apple sent a request to Pegatron, (A chinese CDMA producer), for a CDMA iPhone. It is rumored to have been requested to be fulfilled by the fourth quarter of this year. Apple has not had any word on this whatsoever. Although, if this is not true, the following is very close, if not actually the truth. AT&T and Verizon will soon be putting out a 4G network, called LTE, GSM based. So they are both doing this. In the iPhone 5, or whatever they may call it, it is possible that Apple will put in a GPRS radio, EDGE radio, 3G radio, and an LTE radio. Since Verizon and AT&T will be using the same GSM based 4G network, the iPhone will work on both carriers. But, there is a downside. While AT&T users can use all radios, Verizon users will be left out, because if there is no 4G coverage for Verizon, the device will try to drop to 3G, then EDGE, then GPRS, but since the iPhone's radios aren't compatible with Verizon's 1G, 2G, and 3G networks, it wont work. Therefore, you will have horrible coverage, but fast internet speeds. Whereas on AT&T, you will have access to all those radios. The phone will also have to be unlocked. If Apple does not provide factory unlocks in the US at that time, then you will have to do a software unlock, provided there are any baseband exploits left at that time.

I think the IPhone 5 would have: 1) An LED display screen (that will save around 20% extra battery life)..... 2) A6 Apple chip (or whatever they will call it) that runs on very low voltage that would help saving battery life and it's 4 time faster than the A4 chip in IPhone4........ 3* A 7 Mega-pixel Camera 3x optical zoom and 1080 HD video recording. (face detection and extras).......... 4 support 4G network.....has a theoretical net bit rate capacity of up to 100 Mbit/s in the downlink and 50 Mbit/s in the uplink if a 20 MHz channel is used........(perfect for video calling) 5 Hight quality solar panel on the back... 6 A bigger capacity battery (maybe something newer than lithium-ions)...... 7 Support USB 3.0 for faster sync time .... 8 design wise: the front is only a screen maybe with the home button 9 available in 64GB and 128GB (HQ memory fast to record 1080 HD video) 10* A GPS hardware (not the 3g one) for Elevation/Height Above Sea Level latitude, longitude
Let me know what feature do u wish the next IPhone will have ?!!!

i love it when device manufacturers don't know what new features too incorporate in their next generation of their device so the just double the hard drive space. I guess if you wanted to have like 100 movies on your phone at the same time it would be useful or if you had like 2,000 apps.

My next upgrade will come around the time of the iPhone 5, I imagine a lot of what is said above, better camera, maybe up to 1080P video recording, maybe a hard drive increase, they have not done that with anything for two years now, however who here would like 64GB on their phone? I like one thing about that, it makes the 32GB of the new model cheaper then normal, 32GB is really enough for me, I can still fit dozens of movies, a lot of music and apps and still have room left.

What I want in the iPhone 5:
Better reception signal... I still get problems on my iPhone with that!!
LED Display so it can save 20% of battery life... you go girl XD
A bigger battery
That Apple A5 Chip
A better front facing camera
1080p video recording with back facing camera
Compatible with Verizon even though I'm in the UK
So those are what I want out of the new iPhone 5 or 5G or whatever they will call it. So yeah if you think I might have said anything wrong just leave me a comment.
