Next Gen iPhone Specs "Leaked"

Macrumors reports that in early May a forum poster from Chinese site Weiphone posted specs and a screenshot he claimed is the next generation iPhone. From what we can see, they’re pretty much in line with what the rumors have been saying. Faster processor, more RAM, better camera and more storage.

  • Model number MB717LL
  • 600MHz CPU Speed (up from 400MHz)
  • 256MB RAM (up from 128MB)
  • Digital Compass and FM
  • 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus
  • 32GB size
  • No major changes in battery, screen and external casing.

That said, the last bullet on that list is a little disappointing. The battery life of the iPhone is something almost everyone complains about. For a phone that has more apps than you could shake ten sticks at, the battery life is pretty pathetic and according to these rumors, Apple has no plans to remedy that issue. Lame.
What say ye, fact or fiction?

    But, real talk: wouldn't the upgraded processor and memory size actually increase the rate at which the battery is used?

    Meaning, it's going to require more recharges than the previous generations of iPhones.

    I don't see the point in releasing a new product unless the gap in performance is going to be greater than double, it just makes it more difficult and confusing to develop for a specific device.

    HTC has been offering phones with these specs for over a year now. Apple sells antiquated hardware at hardball prices. I am not amused...

    Is that a bad thing? Don't forget for the guys in the US office, it's only 0910. Give them a chance. :P

As I remember, the consumption rate of my old Dell axim 90 (624MHz) was massive compared to the 30 (300MHz or so). Course, they're a different architecture completely, but it's the only comparison I've got. That, plus the extra RAM and auto-thisthat features...all adds up to less battery life. Which you still can't replace.

    Whenever an iPhone discharges the user is forced to plug it in and then iTunes pops up with the latest "appz" (usually games, farting machines and alike), so I don't see why Apple would want it's customers to recharge less often, or maybe bigger batteries are more expensive and a company that sells overpriced phones can't afford them ...
