Who doesn't love a good rumor, especially when it might be true? We've been hearing talk about Apple releasing a new version of the iPhone this year, but we might be something real as early as April.
According to Fast Company via the Korea Times (sounds like the beginning of a good game of Telephone, no pun intended), Apple and Korea Telecom "have reached a broad consensus to introduce the advance models as early as possible."
What can we (possibly) be looking forward to? Supposedly, some hardware goodies like better graphics chips, dual-core processors, OLED screens and a removable battery. Application-wise, we could be looking at live video chat. There's a quick snippet recalling past rumors about a 5-megapixel camera with flash, which they shouldn't go without at this point considering other top-notch smartphones are shipping with these features right now.
But, while the iPhone v4 might find its way into the hands of a select, fortunate few this April, it will probably be released at the now-traditional iPhone release month: June.
While I'm tired of all this chatter about the Apple Tablet/iSlate, I am keen to hear more about the newest installment to the iPhone clan. We got quite a bit that we had been waiting for last time (video recording capability, bigger hard drive space, better battery life), but maybe now we can finally see some extra-special features as the smartphone market is getting more competitive every day.
