    4" Inch Screen
    4 Cores (2 a9 cpu cores, and 2 sgx543 gpu cores)
    4G Antenna (every new highend smartphone is offering 4G, Apple will follow suit)
    4x the speed (the same speed increase advertized from the iPad 1 to the iPad 2)
    64GB of storage

    This upcoming revamp looks to be the biggest jump forward of any one iPhone generation.

    It's a shame the name iPhone 4 is already taken. It would be perfect for the upcoming iPhone.

    -----
    And the cool part is, those specs are pretty much exactly what the iPhone needs hardware wise, in order to be the perfect smartphone.

    Software wise, it still needs revamped notifications, wireless/ota itunes, and a file system that you can use to drag and drop media into. Not like on a Mac where you see system files and other stuff, but just a users home folder. A place that all apps can access and load and save files from/to. That way if you have a document, it doesn't have to exist inside of each app in order to access it. (1 copy in DropBox, 1 in Pages, 1 in DocsToGo, etc.) Also it means that Apples apps would be able to share files with DropBox or any other file syncing service. Then we can rid of the file sharing in iTunes and instead just have the disk show up as an external drive. And users would be free to drag and drop videos and photos from any PC directly into the iPhone's video/photos folder without having to go through iTunes and syncing everything.

    It sucks that the users can't just simply drag and drop a video from a friend's computer into the Phone. It's also a shame that when plugged in, W7/OSX do not recognize and use the iPhone as a 32GB/64GB Mass/USB Storage Device with access to the file system. Adding a file system would let users add files (via Bluetooth, iTunes apps, Dropbox and other Apps), delete and rename music, videos from their iPhones directly. It would let users download files from Safari(or other apps) and store them on the phone in a centralized location, then be able to access them without Safari on my Mac/PC for easy file sharing/swapping. And it would let us organize the 100+ photos and videos on our iPhones into separate folders/albums. It would even let people delete individual text messages and phone calls. And most importantly it would let people organize videos, music, photos (into albums), and documents (PDF, DOC, PAGES), and other files and easily add them as email attachments on the phone itself.

    But rest assured, those will be coming too. ;)

    I don't think it'll have a 4G antenna, but that's a nice coincidence!
    It also shouldn't have the banner as "the biggest leap since the original" because every new iPhone is the biggest leap since the original :rolleyes:

    The perfect smartphone for you perhaps, but not for everyone. It is doubtful that you will see any of those specs in the next iPhone.

    Other than maybe a few minor tweaks here and there, what else could anyone really ask for?

    It is pretty much a guarentee that pretty much all those specs WILL be in the next iPhone.

    The next iPhone will offer an A5 with a 4x speed increase same as the iPad 2(2 a9 cpu cores, and 2 sgx543 gpu cores), that much is certain.
    People have been clamoring for a 4" inch screen for over an year now, and the rumors are widespread that Apple is getting ready to meet that wish.
    Every new high end smartphone is offering 4G nowadays, Apple will follow suit.

    Not everyone wants a 4" inch screen. There have been several polls here and many people want to stay at the current 3.5 inch screen. Just because you want it, doesn't mean everyone else does.

    Do you have some proof of that, or are you just stating opinion as fact?:rolleyes:

    According to the poll conducted on here, 20% of iPhone users want to stay at the current 3.5 inch screen. The other 80% desperately want a 4" screen.

    Personally I think most of those 20% were trolling, and those that aren't should just stick with the iPhone 4 if they like browsing the web and viewing videos on a tiny 3.5" screen so much.

    As sure as the sun will rise tomorrow, the next iPhone will feature an A5 chip (same as the iPad 2).

    How is that for a guarantee?

    You have no proof of any of your predictions coming true.

    And you likewise have no proof that the sun will come up tomorrow. :p

    You can't see the future, you make predictions based on established patterns. And the established pattern is that the sun will come up tomorrow and the iPhone 5 will have an A5 chip in it just like the iPad 2.

    The established pattern is that it certainly won't have 4G. Look what Apple did with 3G. They waited until the battery life wasn't abysmal. 4G chips are fairly new, are hogs and 4G isn't widespread enough for it to matter yet. Give it a year.

    It will still matter. For atleast an year or so.

    Sweet jesus.... This is the dumbest thread I've ever seen. Hope OP is trolling, for his sake. If not, wow, theres so much here that is untrue. As for the people quoting statistics from polls on this site, they don't count for anything, the population of iPhone users is vastly larger than this forum. Polls here are in no way representative of what the majority wants.

    They waited till 3G was an year old before putting it into the iPhone. The first 4G phones started showing up an year ago. The timing fits.

    And no, they're not hogs. Not sure where you're getting that info.

    No, they waited a year later than everyone wanted them to. By the time it came out 3G had been around for two. I'll be shocked if the next iPhone has 4G.
