Report: iPhone 5 to include quad-core A6

Report: iPhone 5 to include quad-core A6
According to Digitimes, Apple will move to a quad-core A6 processor for the next iteration of the iPhone.

Tentatively called the iPhone 5, the new device will need the quad-core processor to remain competitive (spec-wise) in the market.



Samsung, HTC, LG and Meizu each have phones already out with quad-core processors. Apple will launch the new iPhone in October.

For its custom A6 chips, Apple is expected to use Samsung's Exynos 4 architecture, not Qualcomm or Nvidia's.

Apple's most recent device, the third-generation iPad, uses an A5X processor, a juiced-up dual-core chip.
