4G iPhone won’t arrive until 2012 according to analyst

iphoneIt’s the year 2011, 4G is the “in” thing and everybody seems to be hopping onto the bandwagon this year. Well, everybody except Apple. According to an analyst from Telecom Pragmatics, Sam Greenholtz, the iPhone 5 that will be launching later this year, will not pack any LTE radios and that the iPhone 6 (which will be released in 2012) will be the one supporting LTE instead. According to another analyst, when Apple locked down the specs for the iPhone 5, they didn’t expect this level of hardware competition. Sounds like a reasonable explanation, but if past iPhone models are of any reference to how Apple designs their phones – the exclusion of 4G this year might have been done on purpose. Well, the year is still young and you can expect a lot more iPhone 5 rumors to surface before we actually get the real deal, so stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted.
