The next-generation iPhone will feature an A5 processor, currently found in the iPad 2, as well as an eight-megapixel camera, according to a Bloomberg report. Citing two people familiar with the plans, the report claims that Apple is also testing a new version of the iPad with a higher-resolution, more responsive screen, although it claims the resolution would be roughly one-third higher than that of the current iPad 2 screen, a curious claim as it would break with Apple’s practice of quadrupling resolution in an effort to ease development and app scaling. Evidence of a quad-resolution screen—which would most likely feature a resolution of 2048x1536—has been found in iOS 5.

In a direct contradiction of yesterday’s report that the next-generation iPhone would sport a “radical” new case design, the report also claims that the new phone will closely resemble the iPhone 4, and had its release pushed back to September to coincide with the release of iOS 5. Finally, the report claims that Apple is also working to finish a cheaper version of the iPhone aimed at developing countries that would use chips and displays “of similar quality to” those found in the iPhone 4.
