Straight from the Wall Street Journal is some pretty major news regarding the new iPhone, usually due every summer. In the report, the WSJ revealed that Apple is “developing a new iPhone to debut this summer,” and is also “working on another model for US mobile phone operator Verizon Wireless.” For the moment, the sources and proof are nowhere to be found, only adding to the anger if this turns out to be a sour leak, but that’s a risk we gadget blogs take everyday (and the reader, too).
But to further attempt to confirm their findings, the WSJ states that the “next iPhone is being manufactured by Taiwanese contract manufacturer Hon Hai Precision Industry,” which is essentially FoxConn, while the Verizon CDMA version would be produced by Pegatron Technology this September, long ahead of the purported Tuesday June 22nd press conference/announcement.
Let’s put some more flames on the inferno? The new iPhone is believed to have the name “iPhone HD”, possibly meaning that the screen will have a higher-res to combat with the likes of the Nexus One, EVO 4G, and HTC HD2 (all of the latter produced by HTC). So who’s willing to hope for the AT&T grip on the iPhone to end and some new “iPhone HD” leaks to roll along? You bet we are, and we’re willing and ready to break some of them. Got that, tipsters?
