Apple iPhone 5 just got more sophisticated as reports confirm that the new smartphone will use ‘nano SIM’ cards with multiple network carriers already testing the usability of the new SIM cards.
The new smartphone is slowly but steadily living upto the iPhone legacy of unique advanced features and is expected to launch at the end of this year. With a thinner screen, front-facing high-definition camera and a smart new A5 family processor, iPhone 5 is getting all ready to scorch this fall.
Another major addition highly expected in the new iPhone 5 is the LTE capability, a standard for wireless communication of high-speed data for mobile phones and data terminals. Lack of LTE in the past, has been one of the major drawbacks for iPhones. Dubbed as the Apple-Android duel, this technology will foster the growth of Apple’s flagship smartphone.
Confirmed reports said, “It’s been rumoured that the new iPhone will feature an even smaller SIM card than what’s used now, and we can confirm that the new iPhone will feature these tiny SIM cards called nano-SIMs. Multiple carrier sources have confirmed that Apple is supplying nano-SIM adapters so its carrier partners can test how nano-SIMs work on their networks in standard test devices before they are widely deployed when the new iPhone is introduced.”
Apple has already been pushing the European Telecommunications Standards Institue (ETSI) to pass the new standard of SIM cards. The new Apple iPhone 5 will get hotter with a 4-inch display, thinner screen, a front-facing high-definition camera along with a rear 8 megapixel camera, 1 GB of RAM and a A5 family processor.
