Expert Gene Munster with Piper Jaffray revealed in an rumor to investors on Thursday that Qualcomm is facing supply issues because of its 28-nanometre LTE baseband.
He believes which will ensure how the next iPhone will be released in October this year.
It’s broadly believed that the actual Cupertino company’utes Next iPhone generation will feature the above-mentioned Qualcomm MDM9615 LTE chipset, since it allows for each voice and information connections over LTE networks. This’s also more compact and much much more power-efficient.
“It is more likely the phone launches in October given Qualcomm commentary around 28nm chip supply,” he said. “We believe Apple will include LTE in the iPhone 5 as an important feature in the product update.”
The rumored New iPhone 5 with Qualcomm LTE chip would be a big change from the brand new iPad, which functions the company’s “MDM9600″ modem. That chip only provides data connections more than 4G LTE, and never voice, as the iPad cannot be employed to place phone calls.
Rumors surrounding the following iPhone possess generally decided that it will launch within the fall of 2012, about a year following the iPhone 4S first showed. Last seasons iPhone launch was uncharacteristic for Apple, which in fact had previously introduced new handsets at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June.
Last year Apple elected to showcase iOS 5 at WWDC in San Francisco. When the company stays to which same schedule for 2012, the organization would then introduce the following major update to iOS at this year’s show in early June.
And because those received’t be ready in period for the June launch – October it’s.
