An analyst revealed that the reported iPhone 5 of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) will be thinner compared to the existing version of the device. The analyst also revealed that the upcoming version of the smartphone of Apple will be unveiled by the third quarter this year.
This was revealed by Katy Huberty of Morgan Stanley, who believes that the latest touch panel technology of the iPhone 5 will be the reason why eh device will be thinner compared to the current versions of the device.
However she indicated that the information about the upcoming iPhone 5 has remained limited although she revealed that the device will utilize a quad-core processor from Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM).
The processor will reportedly allow the upcoming iPhone 5 to link up to all types of 3G as well as LTE networks. This will make it unnecessary for the company to develop different versions of the device depending on the network of the service provider.
Huberty also indicated that the demand for the upcoming iPhone 5 will be high following the strong demand for the Apple iPhone 4S, which has amazed the supply chain of Apple and Apple itself. This will reportedly increase the sales of the upcoming iPhone 5 once it enters the market.
This observation was released recently through a note that Huberty wrote for investors. The statements of Huberty were similar to the statement of Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray, who hinted that the iPhone 5 will feature a new design. Munster also revealed that the iPhone 5 will enter the market by August and that the demand for the device will be strong.
Aside from the iPhone 5, Huberty also indicated that the iPad 3 will feature a better screen resolution and may be unveiled during the first half of the year. The manufacture of the tablet offering of Apple will reportedly increase near the end of the current quarter.
