Apple’s New iPhone Specs Leaked? Faster Processor, More RAM, Better Camera & Larger Storage

A poster at Chinese Apple fan blog WeiPhone has posted specs and screenshot of what he claims to be Apple's new iPhone.

The tipster also claims that there will be no major changes in the physical design of Apple's next generation iPhone but will come with a faster 600MHz processor (up from 400MHz in the current iPhone), 256MB
RAM (up from 128MB), a 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus and a larger storage capacity of up to 32GB (up
from a maximum of 16GB).

The tipster claims to have used prototypes of Apple's next generation iPhone thanks to a friend who works at Foxconn, Apple's manufacturing partner.

According to the poster, Apple's new iPhone will have the following new features:

  • 256MB RAM (up from 128MB) – This is new information. According to the tipster thanks to the faster processor and increased RAM, the speed of using the iPhone has "really improved" versus current models.

The tipster has also posted a screenshot which seems to depict a new iPhone model number "MB717LL" with 32GB of Storage as seen below:



According to MacRumors:

As far as we can tell, the original poster has no track record for accurate information, though the Chinese web/forums have been a common source of early photos of recent Apple releases including the unibody MacBook and MacBook Pro casings.

AppleInsider has raised some apprehensions about the leak:

Some aspects of the rumor are dubious enough to call into question at
least some of the story. It suggests that the next iPhone will have FM,
for example — a technology Apple has left out of all iPhones and iPods
to date. The screen capture also makes reference to connecting to an
AT&T network as the carrier, though it's not the same revision
number seen by most US iPhones, which usually connect to ATT3.1 and not
the ATT3.5 mentioned in the screenshot.

So what's your take if this specs of Apple's new iPhone turn out to be accurate.
