Apple iPhone 5 to Use Qualcomm chipset and A5 processor


Summer 2011 will set the release of the next generation iPhone series, iPhone 5. From the very beginning of the original iPhone 3G launch day until the breaking news of iPhone 4 on Verizon, the response received from smartphone users from all over the world is phenomenal and still shows no sign of abating.

As the iOS 4.3’s code has revealed two possible new models of the iPhone, presumably the next generation iPhone 5, the upcoming device will be using a Qualcomm baseband and an IC substrate from Kinsus that does triple duty as the CDMA / GSM / UMTS baseband processor . According to Digitimes, Kinsus Interconnect Technology could break into the supply chain of Apple’s iPhone 5 as the new smartphone will adopt Qualcomm’s baseband chipsets, accounting up to 30% to 40% of the iPhone 5 orders.

Engadget also reports that the upcoming iPhone 5 will be completely different, a totally redesigned smartphone. It will also feature the latest Apple’s processor, A5. As of now, the iPhone 5 is still on track for a summer launch and is currently being rigorously tested by senior staffs at Apple.

We also heard that Apple is working on the next generation of Apple TV, which incorporate the speedy A5 chip from the iPhone 5 which is powerful enough to bring 1080p video to Apple’s TV.
