Completely Redesigned iPhone 5, Retina Display iPad, 1080p Apple TV?
The iPhone 5 will get a complete redesign, the iPad will get a Retina Display, and the Apple TV will get 1080p video, according to an Engadget report.
The site claims to have concrete information from reliable sources about the upcoming devices.
Apparently the mockups which have received so much press coverage of late are very early versions of the device and contrary to rumor, the new iPad will arrive in April. The display will sport a new technology similar to the Retina Display and be "super high resolution". It will get front and rear cameras, and feature an SD slot. "In fact, see that weird notch in the photo below? That's where the SD part will be located."
The new iPad will also feature a dual GSM / CDMA chipset produced by Qualcomm.
Engadget's sources report that the iPhone 5 will be a completely redesigned handset and will launch this summer. It is already being tested by senior Apple staff on campus only. It is said to be running a new A5 CPU and will also sport a Qualcomm chipset that "does triple duty as the CDMA / GSM / UMTS baseband processor -- from what we hear there's no LTE in the mix at this point."
Apple is also said to be working on a next generation Apple TV that will feature the new A5 processor as well. "The CPU is said to be blazingly fast, cranking out 1080p video 'like running water.' It's likely that the A5 will make it into the iPad 2 as well, but we have yet to confirm that"
