The guys at Cupertino are reportedly testing a version of what could be the iPhone 5 powered by a version of the A5X processor which made its debut in the iPad 3.
According to 9to5Mac, a source has told them that testing the A5X-powered iPhone has began at Apple HQ.
Apparently, these iPhones, which could very well be the iPhone 5, are disguised by the consumer electronics giant by utilizing casings of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.
This was done to prevent leaks just like this one which rocked Apple’s world last year.
However, if the prototype iPhone is disguised to look like the iPhone 4/4S, the next iPhone will look different, the report says.
According to sources of the publication, the iPhone 5 “is specifically said to not include the iPhone 4/4S design, but Apple is testing these new devices in older casings to throw off leaks. “
Another noteworthy detail from the story is that the iPhone 5, if it comes with the A5X being tested in prototype iPhones, will have 1GB in RAM.
