One noticeable part for the iPhone 5 that has not been leaked yet is the main processor. There has been some speculation about whether it would use a modified A5, or perhaps the A5X. And then there’s also been the possibility of a new A6 chip, which Sonny Dickson has posted a picture of.
In the picture, you can see “A6″ printed on the main chip, which would confirm the idea that Apple is rolling out a new chip family for the next generation iPhone, as 9to5Mac sums up…
It is speculated the A6, or a variant of the A5X chip, would appear in the next iPhone, and many thought Taiwanese Semiconductor Manufacturing Company’s 28nm process would manufacturer the quad-core chip, but the latest reports claimed Apple is stuck with Samsung for at least CPU and/or baseband chip building after TSMC rebuffed an exclusive bid.
There’s no way to confirm the legitimacy of these pictures, so all we can do is play the waiting game.
