Apple To Launch its Next iPhone to Tackle the SmartPhone Competition
Apple is all set to launch its Next iPhone, in a move to tackle the increasing Smartphone competition. The next iPhone by Apple would be very much similar to the current version of iPhone 4 and the major difference that it is planning to implement is to make the iPhone thinner, lighter and with an improved 8 megapixel camera.
As per the sources the new iPhone will be operating on Qualcomm’s wireless chips and the ‘s current iPhone 4 uses chips from a German chip maker Infineon Technologies which is now owned by Intel. It is also heared that Apple would be launching a new version of its mobile operating system shortly along with the latest version of iPhone.
The iPhone business constituted about half of Apple’s $US24.7 billion in revenue in the quarter that ended March 26. Since launching the iPhone in 2007, Apple has sold around 108.6 million iPhones. As the smartphone competition has increased, many other manufactures have entered the scene with similar phones which runs on Google’s Android mobile operating system. Apple’s major smartphone rivals are Samsung Electronics and both Apple and Samsung was involved in a legal battle where both the companies accused the other of infringing its intellectual property.
Recently Apple also filed a case with the US International Trade Commission to put a hold on US import of Samsung Smartphones and tablets. This was done just days after Samsung requested HTC to avoid certain iPhone and iPad models from the US market.
