Whilst these specs have been reported by several other sources in the past, Misek also seems to believe the iPhone 4S will indeed feature minor â€œcosmetic changesâ€ (thus contradicting rumors weâ€™ve heard in the past few weeks) and support for HSPA+ networks.
Because the 4G chips werenâ€™t ready, Apple is going with the minor update to the iPhone 4.
Misek also revealed the next version of the phone will work with Sprint, T-Mobile, and China Mobile.
Speculation arisen around the next-gen iPhone model suggested Apple was already testing iPhone 4 prototypes running a custom A5 chip (the same found on the iPad 2) for better performances, but those old reports couldnâ€™t specify whether the temporary iPhone 4 demo units would result in an iPhone 4-like design for the final product. Misek believes the iPhone 5 â€” which was rumored to have NFC, a bigger screen, 4G connectivity, or a thinner form factor, among other things â€” will look like an iPhone 4, only faster on the inside. Upgrading the 3G performances of the iPhone also falls in line with Tim Cookâ€™s recent statements about LTE 4G chipsets, which the COO mentioned the Q2 2011 earnings call, saying they would have required â€œdesign compromisesâ€ Apple wasnâ€™t willing to accept.
