iPhone 4G dubbed iPhone HD Specifications, Features and More

by Jeffry on April 2, 2010

The iPhone 4G (next generation iPhone) is yet to be released. On the other hand Google Android phones are gaining momentum and tapping the smartphone market share, and the most affected handset is Apple’s iPhone. In order to combat with smartphones like Android phones and Windows Phone 7, Apple is developing a new iPhone 4.0 which is said to debut this summer on Verizon Wireless.

Steve Jobs also reportedly confirmed that the next iPhone coming is an A+ updates, and that “Apple will deliver aggressive updates to iPhone that Android/Google won’t be able to keep up with”. But what should be expected from the upcoming iPhone HD device? Some of the iPhone 4G rumored specifications concept designs that surfaced in past few weeks are as follows.

iPhone 4G/HD with 940 x 640 Screen resolution?

According to Daring Fireball, the iPhone 4G/HD is expected with high-resolution 940 x 640 capacitive touchscreen display packed with Apple A4-family CPU system-on-a-chip which is based on core technology from United Kingdom-based ARM and powers the iPad also.

“Expose Like” Multitasking Support?

iPhone OS 4.0 is said to support multitasking. This means that the iPhone 4.0 firmware user interface will resemble Apple’s desktop Expose feature. After tapping the Home button twice, an expose-like interface will bring up the currently running apps, prompting user for quick selection. Once the selection is made, the iPhone OS zooms out of the Expose task manager and transitions you to that running app.

iPhone 4G with front-facing video camera?

Appleinsider earlier reported that the next-generation iPhone 4G might come with 64GB of NAND flash storage, a touch panel on the back of the iPhone 4G, high definition video playback and recording with a 5 megapixel camera, front-facing video camera, improved battery life, an AMOLED screen and more. Upgrading to a 5-megapixels camera will bring the handset into line with that offered by android powered Nexus One.

Next Generation iPhone coming on Verizon?

It is also being rumored that, Apple is currently developing two new next generation iPhone models, one of which will be compatible with Verizon’s CDMA network, which is scheduled to be released this year. The two iPhone models is said to be produced by different manufacturers. The new iPhone GSM version would be released this summer while the CDMA model (probably iPhone 4G) for Verizon would not go into production until September 2010. The CDMA model of iPhone is said to be thinner with a faster processor.

iPhone 4G is actually iPhone HD?

Engadget reports that the next-generation iPhone 4G would be dubbed as iPhone HD. iPhone HD is said to be announced on June 22, 2010 and will compete with the fellow rival Sprint EVO 4G, HTC HD2 and all other smartphone devices.

Magic Mouse Features on iPhone HD?

Bloomberg reports that there would be lots of changes (both hardware and software) in upcoming next generation iPhone HD is said to include a more advanced camera, and may feature a touch-sensitive casing similar to that used for Apple’s touch-panel Magic Mouse. Magic Mouse has a touch-sensitive solid plastic shell that replaces mechanical buttons. The technology may be replicated in the new iPhone to offer touch-sensitive features on the rear of the handset. The next iPhone is rumored to go into production in April and will be available to consumers in June.

iPhone 4G To Get 802.11n Wi-Fi Standard?

Sometime back the iPhone team at Apple was looking for a software engineer with expertise in WiFi a/b/g/n and related specifications. Engineer who can implement the 802.11a and 802.11n standards, along with the existing 802.11b/g technology. The job posting added speculations that the next gen iPhone 4G is finally going to support 802.11n WiFi standard. The job specifications was.

  • Implementation of 802.11 a/b/g/n & related specifications.
  • 802.11i/802.1x Security protocols
  • Good understanding of wireless RF technologies
  • & co-existence issues of 802.11 PHYs with other Wireless interfaces like Bluetooth.

iPhone 4G aka MacBook In a Phone?

Few days back Gizmodo shared a 32 GB iPhone 4G concept phone packed with Titanium and Glass, OLED screen, GPS, Front camera for iChat, Removable battery, 3.2 Megapixel camera and more.

There are lots of speculations floating around about how iPhone 4G (iPhone HD) would look like and what would be its specification? Many developers are showcasing iPhone 4G concept phones all over the web. Macpredictions have come out with a very unique and sleek design that consists of aluminium unibody enclosure to the iPhone 4 similar to what we have in MacBook Pro (as shown in first image). The iPhone 4 / HD with Aluminum Unibody Concept look very enticing.

But one thing is clear, that the features that are present in smartphones like HTC HD2 and Sprint’s Evo 4G and are missing in iPhone 3GS, will surely make up in upcoming “iPhone HD”. What do you say?

    Lots of speculation has been going on about the next generation of iPhone. Now that the iPad has been released and all that hype is at its peek and declining soon, hopefully Apple will make an announcement about the iPhone soon

    Jeff, I think very highly of the Droid and Android in general, and like their Java-based programming environment. But the pre-loaded X Terminal application on the default menu, and not only the permission but *encouragement* of the vendor to hack the phone, makes the N900 the best phone for geeks I’ve seen. (See http://blogs.nokia.com/pushn900/ – *my* geek phone can fly a full-sized helicopter! :-D )

  • ricegf

    The Droid is a fine smartphone, Jeff, and I’ve quite fond of Android. But for true geeks, nothing beats a smartphone that prominently features “X Terminal” on the pre-installed app menu from a vendor that sponsors hacking contests (http://blogs.nokia.com/pushn900/) like my N900. :-D

    looks like Apple may eventually catch up to the premium HD phones on the market. Still a very unsupportable device. but at least they are trying.

  • Jay

    Catch up with others? Catch up my arssss. Have you been under a rock or just plain slow? Have you seen or even used the iPhone? Apple is light years ahead of everyone. No one will ever come close. Why does everyone seem to be stuck on what a phone can do and can't. Basically, all phones can do a whole lot of functions. It is how it is done that counts. Who cares about multi-task.The iPhone rules.

    • Sean

      Light years ahead?? I love my iphone, but i can't stand the fact that it has no LED flash or SD card memory. Low resolution screen and no bluetooth file sharing. No 4G data speeds, crappy mono speaker, accelarometers that are off and can't be calibrated, and a bandwidth cap for streaming video over 3g because ATT won't spend the money to improve their network speeds. I hope they fix all of this, because HTC is moving ahead of them in the hardware category.

      I had an iPhone 3GS and loved it. Then I switched to the Motorola Droid. The iPhone does not even compare to the capabilities of an android. IPhone's are good for music and games, but if you want you phone to actually be able to do stuff, get a droid. What kind of smartphone can't even run multiple apps at the same time? Don't get me wrong, the iPhone is a great phone, and if I had to have At&T its the phone I would get. But for all the geeks like me out there, nothing satisfies like a DROID.

      • Vince

        It appears your main complain is about the lack of function to run multiple apps at the same time.This was addressed in this article. Read the part about “Expose Like” Multitasking Support?

      • ISMAEL

        For all geeks like you, droid is better.Jay is right. How things are done in iPhone makes it light years better than any smartphone out there. i believe that you have experienced how CUT and PASTE is done in your 3GS.i know that it is silly basis for a phone but i still prefer how easily something is done than on how it is cheaply done on other os.

    • Allen

      Well somebody in apple obviously cared enough to highlight "multi-tasking" in the OS 4 presentation yesterday. haha i think light years is a little dramatic dont you think? By the way what you can do on the iphone OS 4 with multi-tasking, you can do the same on the blackberry. Haha apple just decided to change a few things and called it "Multi-tasking."

  • ricegf

    Well, if true, then they are *starting* to catch up with the other players. A front-facing camera and "Expose-like" multi-tasking like Nokia's N900, a hi-resolution screen and better camera resolution like the Nexus One (though not as good as some other Android phones), and back-touch control like the Motorola Backflip. Still no mention of a microSD card slot, physical keyboard, or removable battery, but a better case and 802.11n would be welcome. Possibly available on something other than AT&T (GREAT idea!). More evolutionary than revolutionary, but much more interesting than the aging current models. We'll wait to see, I suppose, if Apple's reboot can slow Android's remarkable momentum.

    • Vince

      There will never be a physical keyboard for an iPhone. It's completely against what the iPhone concept is/was about. microSD slot, removable battery and 802.11n are very likely / very possible though. And.. a better case? Who knows. That's not such a biggie.

  • jcmb

    doubt removable batteries will ever be included, Apple's entire product line is moving towards unibody non removable battery enclosures
