Apple is expected to launch the next generation iPhone, the iPhone 5 around September 12th and the rumour mills are hard at work, churning out new information about to Appleâ€™s upcoming smartphone.
The latest rumour suggests that the device will feature a â€œNano SIMâ€ tray. Images have surfaced on the Internet suggesting what the tray may look like. The report comes fromÂ nowhereelse.fr, which shows off the images of the new Nano SIM tray.
This isnâ€™t the first time thatÂ AppleÂ will incorporate a new type of SIM card in its smartphones. The iPhone 4 was one of the first devices to incorporate the Micro SIM card and this has been adopted by other smartphone such as theÂ Samsung Galaxy S IIIÂ and more.
The Nano SIM will be 40% smaller than its predecessor and this will allow the next iPhone to be very slim, or fit more capabilities into the same space.
If the advantage of the Nano SIM is that the next iPhone will be slimmer, the disadvantage is that it will lead to compatibility issues with other devices and in a country like India where users change there smartphones on a regular basis, this may be a bit of a problem.
In the recent past we have heard many rumours about Appleâ€™s next flagship device. Some rumours suggest that the device will have a new smaller dock connector. We have even seen an iPhone 5 assembled from leaked parts.
Other rumours making their rounds on the Internet suggest that the device will have a larger display than its predecessor and also have a smaller home button.
