More Evidence of a 4G iPhone!

Print comment Post Comments
Earlier this week, Apple pinned down the date for the big iPhone 5 (or iPhone 4S) unveiling. Next Tuesday, October 4, we'll finally be laying eyes on Cupertino's brand new flagship phone.

But the venue of the event lends itself to some speculation. Since it's taking place in the company's headquarters, some analysts suspect that the main reason for the change of venue isn't that the Moscone Center -- Apple's usual choice -- is booked by Oracle, but that the event will include a demonstration of the future iPhone's 4G capabilities using Apple's own base-station equipment.

While the theory is a long-shot -- many preliminary reports conclude that 4G capabilities won't be ready for the new iPhone -- more evidence seems to support that 4G speeds will be present in the upcoming device.

Today, MacRumors shared a story from Japanese blog Macotakara, which purportedly confirms an iPhone 5 with 4G speeds. During a presentation at MacWorld Asia, a China Unicom executive allegedly let slip that the device will support HSPA+ technology, capable of producing download speeds of 21 Mbps.

Adding fuel to the fire, Japanese site PC Watch posted a slide of the presentation which also boasts the information.

Although you risk a huge let down come Tuesday, it's really only five days of pining for a pipe dream. So it's not so bad to start getting excited.
