After the success of iPhone 4, Apple is now said to manufacture its fifth-generation iPhone in the third quarter of this year and there by release the device possibly in the later part of the year according to a financial analyst firm, FBR Capital Markets.

The iPhone 5 is said to come with a single baseband chip that would be compatible with both GSM as well as CDMA networks. Also, the next iPhone is expected to come with an upgraded 8MP camera having a CMOS sensor from OmniVision Technologies. Thanks to this new chip, as now Apple need not manufacture two iPhone versions separately for GSM and CDMA models.

Also, around 12 million iPhone 4 and 8 million iPhone 5 units are said to be manufactured in Q3 of this year. As per the firm, Sony might be the backup sensor supplier for the next iPhone cameras in the coming year. Additionally, Apple is said to give up Intel and Qualcomm would be the provider for integrated GSM-CDMA chips.

There are few other analysts suggesting that iPhone 5 could be powered by Apple’s dual-core A5 processor that is already being used in the iPad 2. As such, the handset is expected to run apps in a more efficient manner and can also play 1080p graphics. However, Apple has lip-locked to say anything about the iPhone 5 release date.
