New iPhone to Get Next Gen Processor?

Μια νέα αναφορά απο το John Gruger μας εμφανίζει την πιθανότητα το καινούριο iPhone να χρησιμοποιεί όχι απλά πιο γρήγορο processor αλλά και επόμενης γενιάς processor.

Το πρώτο iPhone με EDGE και το iPhone 3G έχουν τον ίδιο processor στα 400MHz. Σε περίπτωση που οι φήμες είναι σωστές ο processor της επόμενης γενιάς για iPhone θα τρέχει στα 600 MHz. Με αυτόν τον καινούριο processor το iPhone θα είναι 1.5 φορά πιο γρήγορο από αυτά που έχουμε τώρα με 400 MHz.

Much of what the iPhone does now is constrained by its CPU. App launching speed, for one thing — faster app launching should make it feel more like switching between apps and less like quitting/relaunching them. Web page rendering is also significantly constrained by the CPU. When I first used NetShare I was amazed at how fast Safari on my MacBook Pro could render web pages using the iPhone’s cell network connection. Web page rendering on current iPhones is hindered at least as much, if not more, by the CPU than by the speed of the 3G network.

John also believes that the new device will sport 256 MB of memory, up from the 128 MB, prices will stay the same — $199 and $299, and storage will increase to 16 and 32 GB. He says that the design changes will be subtle and the colors will remain the same.

Internally he confirms that rumors about a magnetometer (a.k.a. a compass) and an improved camera that will shoot video with auto-focus are accurate.
