InRumor offers you a recap of this week’s iPhone 5 rumors.

iPhone 5 could arrive in the first quarter of 2012

Alexis Madrigal, a senior editor at The Atlantic, speculated that Apple’s next-generation iPhone “is probably going to come out in the first quarter of 2012.”

In addition, the analyst predicted that the handset will be a trendsetter in the world of tech in 2012.

“I think the release of the iPhone 5 will be the pivot around which the rest of 2012 turns in tech,” he speculates, adding that the smartphone could set “a whole new standard for communications devices.”

iPhone 5 could feature quad-core A6 chip and “innovative display technology”

Charles Moore at The iPhone 5 News Blog speculated that the next iPad models will be the first to use Apple’s quad-core A6 processor.

“And if the iPad 3 does indeed turn out to be powered by A6 silicon, it will be a strong indicator that the iPhone 5 will be likewise equipped,” he wrote.

MacTimes, on the other hand, wrote that the handset will sport an “innovative display technology … based on adjoining and round pixels,” according to the Google Translate account of the German language post.

iPhone 5 will be a “more radical update”

Sterne Agee analyst Shaw Wu believes that Apple’s next smartphone will represent a “more radical refresh” with features such as 4G LTE technology.

“From our checks with supply chain and industry sources and consistent with what we had said in early August, we are picking up that the new iPhone will be a more radical update with a sleeker, thinner form factor, and a slightly larger screen,” Wu wrote.

He added: “In addition, it will likely incorporate 4G LTE technology, which would provide a significant boost in wireless network performance. We believe this significant update keeps the iPhone fresh and competitive and helps maintain its leadership position.”

iPhone 5, iPad 3 to feature quad-core chips

9to5Mac reported that the next generations of iPhone and iPad could be equipped with a quad-core processor instead of what can be found today in the iPhone 4S and iPad 2.

The report cited an “extremely reliable and knowledgeable people familiar with iOS’s inner workings,” explaining that references to quad-core iPhone and iPad chips were found in “a hidden panel that describes cores that are supported by iOS device hardware.”

The number 0 indicates the presence of a core (the A4 chip), then the number 1 that of two cores (the A5 chip in the second image), and 3 points point to the possibility of using four cores.
