Rumors suggest that after apple is done with iPhone 5 they will launch the upgraded iPod. The rumored iPod is going to have larger screen possibly a 4.0 inch as compared to the 3.5 of the current iPod. There is also an upgrade when it comes to processor it will carry the dual core A5 chip from the iPhone 5. New gen iPod will also have upgraded memory of 512 MB, there is going to be lot of cosmetic changes. On the backside it will have buffed aluminum, when it comes to screen it will have the same screen technology that the iPhone 4s carries i.e. “retina display”. There is a possibility that they might use the screen technology of the upcoming iPhone 5.
The display technology of the iphon5 is quite advanced as compared to the current displays that are used in the mobile phones. Instead of using the OLED (organic light-emitting diode) technology that is widely in use by its rival manufacturers like samsung they are sticking to LCD. In this new display technology they have used LCD panel, where they have devised a way to integrate touch sensors into the screen itself instead of using separate layers for touch and display screen. Those ways the upcoming iPhone will be the slimmest phone around expect the same with the iPod if they decided to have the same technology here. As seen in the leaked images new iPod will have a hole in the bottom at the backside, till now its purpose is unclear. But as the case with the iPhone the new displays that are being made in the Japan by some heavy weight of the screen industry.
The problem with the display is that they take larger time for manufacturing due to the complicated fabrication required. So with these display it would be hard to fulfill the demands of the users. As per speculations there is going to be shortage of the iPhone 5 after its launch due to the increased manufacturing time. If the iPod carries the same screen it would be amazing to see how they manage the demands of the customers. When it comes to portable media players there is no competition for the apple iPod. Apple IPod is a clear winner of the segment as there offer similar specifications that their phone offer. Now people see iPod as device that does all the things that an iPhone does expect the calling. So with the upcoming launch of the iPhone 5 apples is going to revolutionize its lineup. With the latest offering they are coming up with larger screen which would be carried to the upcoming devices as till now apple have been using 3.5 inch displays in all iPhone and iPod devices. They are also coming with better and slimmer displays (thanks to new display technology). New connectivity options are also going to be there like NFC (near field communication) and 4G LTE. Apple fans are dying to get their hand on upcoming devices we hope they don’t have to waiting period is not that long.
