New information on the iPhone 5 has been leaked by Vodafone Europe. An accidential posting said the new N94 device will be available in both white and black, has an improved antenna and will have a Gorilla glass back not a metal one which I indicated last month.It’s also been revealed that the new Apple device, which Samsung, HTC and Google are closely watching for patent breaches, has an improved antenna design, 512MB of RAM and will look similar to the iPhone 4, which could be a problem as brands are now delivering large display screens and slimmer Android based Smartphones.

According to a listing for its SureSignal network enhancing box, several Smartphones are refered to including an iPhone 5 in 16GB and 32GB configurations.
The listing was only up briefly, but it was long enough for AppleInsider to notice and take a screenshot of the page before it was removed, clearly showing the iPhone 5 in the list of phones.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo told AppleInsider on Monday that Apple’s anticipated fifth-generation iPhone will sport the same 512MB of DRAM as the iPhone 4. In addition, the hardware will feature a glass front and back, just like the current iPhone.
Apple Insider claims that Foxconn will be responsible for manufacturing 85 percent of Apple’s fifth-generation iPhone units. The other 15 percent will reportedly be assembled by Pegatron.
In all Apple is said to be planning to build 30 million fifth-generation iPhone units by the end of calendar 2011. If Apple were to meet that goal and sell all of the handsets in the holiday quarter, it would easily best the record 20.34 million iPhones Apple sold in its June 2011 quarter.
