When Steve Jobs and company first announced the original iPhone, they said that they were going after 1% of the smartphone market. At the time, there were around 100 million smartphone sales globally, so 1% would have been one million units.

As most of you know by now, Apple has far exceded that goal. In the last quarter alone it shipped over 20 million smartphones. Not bad for only 4 years and 4 handsets into the market. But what’s next?

There’s an old cliche that says “you can’t know where you’re going, until you know where you’ve been.” And that seems to be the theme of IntoMobile‘s latest infographic. The image outlines previous models and their features, as well as the iPhone 5.

Obviously the iPhone 5’s details are based off of rumored specs, but considering the previous enhancements the handset has received they seem fairly feasible.

As you can see, Apple has a habit of upgrading things like the processor and camera sensors, so those improvements can be expected. However, it has yet to change the size of the iPhone’s display. So take that rumor with a little more salt.

It’ll be interesting to finally see what the Cupertino company has in store for its next smartphone. Heck, the company is expected to sell 100 million of them. Is there anything missing from the list that you’d like to see on the iPhone 5?

    woah great graphic

  • Well, if I’m going to dream about what I would like to see on the iPhone 5, then….

    1) 4G instead of 3G
    2) Projector
    3) ESP feature so it just reads my mind – no more “touching” it….
    4) Magic Genie App which grants me at least 3 wishes….

    I think that’ll do it for now, but I’m sure I’ll think of something later…. 😀

  • We mentioned that in our post about 10.4.1 yesterday.

    • Asad

      I updated to 10.4.1 and I don’t know why it isnt showing my iPhone 4..
      I tried everything that was suggested on apple.com except rebooting my iPhone.. So instead of regular rebooting I rebooted it via Redsn0w
      Cuz i’m using iOS 4.3.5… :/

    That is a great graph of what has been in the phones. What I would like to know is all of the RAM memory each phone had. Does anyone know? And what are we expecting with the IPhone 5?

  • Mark

    iPhone 3gs looks fatter than the 3g

  • I think all the hype surrounding this dvice is gonna be a big come down when it’s released viva iphone4

  • Josh Lee

    I know this is a really nooby question, but what exactly is the difference between single sore and dual core?

    • David

      Dual core means having 2 cores instead of 1 in the processor, that way it’s not just 1 core having to do all the work meaning it’ll be a faster phone.

      • However that dont mean it’s gonna be much faster than the ip4 afterall 1ghz is 1ghz without the extra ram required to increase the speed it’s not gonna make much difference apart from increasing the battery life

      • XepptizZ

        Not shure how it is for iphones, but a singlecore netbook wil crawl to a halt when having to do more processes at one time, while a slower dualcore will have a lot less loss in performance even though it can handle some heavy processes worse,

  • Roy

    Hope it’s not any bigger than the iPhone 3GS/iPhone 4????

  • anon

    here’s a nice idea!
    2 versions: the iphone 5 and the other one a bigger iphone 5 for bigger hands.

    a bigger version of an iphone wouldnt be such a bad idea. could also mean bigger battery or space to insert flash drives

  • my3rdlife

    I bet iphone5 would be a great deal if they extended its battery life, higher specs would require additional consumption.

    i cant wait for this device to be release, i just do hope so i wouldn’t be that expensive.
