Every year we come across rumours involving the next iPhone, and after finding out that the device could feature a 4-inch display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, we have now found out that the device will likely sport a dual-core processor.
9to5Mac has got hold of a couple of pictures reportedly showing off the battery which is set to feature inside the new iPhone. We can see from the images that the device will sport a 1,440mAh battery, which is only a small increase on the 1,430mAh pack found in the iPhone 4S. It is the battery capacity which really makes us believe that this will be a dual-core device, as most quad-core smartphones have battery sizes ranging from 1,800mAh and 2,100mAh.
While some may think a dual core CPU is a bit of a letdown, iOS runs quite well on its current processor so a small bump in clock speed along with a larger screen, should still provide the silky smooth performance we all expect out of iOS.
The new iPhone is scheduled for release in September, but Apple will likely remain quiet about the details of its next smartphone up until its launch.
