Who will reign the smartphone jungle?
Apple’s next generation iPhone, dubbed iPhone 5, which is expected to feature a “radical new design” and boast of major hardware and software changes, could rule the smartphone jungle but it faces a powerful adversary in Google Nexus 4G.
iPhone 5, which is expected to be launched in September, will reportedly feature a “radical new case design,” keeping in line with Apple’s reputation as a company which is always on the bleeding edge of industry design.
iPhone 5 is expected to boast of the following features:
> A5 processor in the range of 1.2-1.5 GHz

> More RAM, possibly 1GB
> Better camera (perhaps 8-megapixel) with 1080p video playback and panaromic photo capture capability and an improved dual-LED flash unit

> A SIM-less design
> 3-4 internal antennas for both GSM and CDMA networks
> 4G connectivity
> iOS 5, which will be true multitask capable and come with loads of new features such as News Stand, Reminders, Delta Updates and iMessage
