The Apple iPhone 4S is one most popular smartphones of all time, and the popularity of Apple's smartphones series looks set to increase even further in the near future.  The iPhone 5 is set to be released next month, and if previous iPhone releases are anything to go by, it is sure to be one of the most impressive smartphones we have ever seen.  In this article, I will look at some of the potential features of the iPhone 5, and how they measure up against the current model.


One of the significant changes that we are likely to see from the iPhone 4S is its screen. The iPhone 5 is more than likely to include a larger touch screen.  The iPhone 4S has a 3.5 inch screen, a measurement shared with previous iPhone models.  Some of the main competitors the iPhone 4S sport screens which are over 4 inches, such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X. By including a larger screen on the iPhone 5, it will give Apple the perfect opportunity to gain back some of the market share that it has recently lost to Android powered smartphones such as these.  The iPhone 4S is renowned for its display quality of its screen thanks to the retina display.  This gets its name due to the fact that the naked eye cannot distinguish between individual pixels on screen.  This technology is almost guaranteed to also be included in the iPhone 5, with the benefit of its larger screen adding to its display quality and appeal.


The aforementioned Android powered smartphones sport quad-core processors and are among the first smartphones to do so.  The iPhone 4S is also likely to include this feature.  This is because Apple will be keen to compete with handsets like these, so by including a quad-core processor, the handset will boast almost unrivalled performance.


It has been suggested that the iPhone 5 will sport a 12 mega pixel camera, whereas some sources suggest it will remain the same 8 megapixel resolution as the camera on the iPhone 4S. Whatever the resolution is, it is likely that the camera of the iPhone 5 will include a number of additional new features, such as the ability to capture simultaneous photos and videos, or a function which will capture a pre-determined number of consecutive still photos after tapping the capture key just once.  This is because features like these are included on the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S3, and Apple will be keen to match or outdo phones like these.


Whatever the features of this phone, it is set to be the technology event of the year. It is set to be unveiled on September 12th, so mark this date in your diary and be prepared for a very exciting smartphone.
