Hardware supposedly includes an ARM Cortex A8 processor and 512MB of RAM – twice as much as the 3GS. DigiTimes says that the iPhone 4G's new screens will boast IPS and FFS technology with a 960x640 resolution. The new displays will support a wider viewing angle and clearer visuals in sunlight, and they're 33% thinner, leaving more space for a larger battery.
DigiTimes' report conflicts with recently leaked photos of a dismantled iPhone prototype, which showed the Apple A4 and 256MB of RAM – the same configuration found in the iPad. Meanwhile, iPhone OS 4.0 will bring long-desired features, such as multitasking. Apple is also said to be working to improve the handset's e-book reader features to promote its iBooks app.
