The photos aren’t clear enough to make out any useful details, but according to the report, the device will use a version of the A5X chip used in the new iPad. That also means the next iPhone likely pack 1GB of RAM and improved graphics hardware in addition to a slightly faster processor.
Whether or not such information was really derived from this logic board, it’s a safe bet that the next iPhone will include a significantly enhanced chip of some sort, and the A5X chip seems like a safe assumption.
Apple’s next iPhone is expected to feature a new taller and thinner design, a 4-inch screen, and more, and is expected to be announced on September 12 and released on September 21. For all the latest details, check out our iPhone 5 rumor roundup!
