What do you think it will have? If I had to wager on the specs of the iPhone 5, I'd say it'll have a better front facing camera. A faster processor wouldn't surprise me either.

First, and foremost is that it will be a 4G device. I think the iPhone 5 is going to have a 1.2 GHz dual core processor as others have speculated. Will also change to a higher storage of 64 Gb instead of the 32 Gb. Lastly, I believe the camera will be bumped up to 8MP, with the capability of recording full HD videos (720p).

8MP? I highly doubt it. An A5 chipset would be a nice addition. And hopefully something done about the antenna issue.
I agree, 8MP is too much for a phone.

I would like to see an improved antenna design, getting annoyed with dropped calls in low signal areas. I would also like to see a slightly larger screen. The battery is fine on my current iPhone 4, but if they could improve that, then I'd be even happier.

I doubt it too, I think they'll go higher.;):D

In all seriousness, I think tpit will have same resolution, 6MP camera, 4G, dual-core A5 processor and a better face time camera, with 4G FaceTime capabilities.

A5 Chipset for sure and I think a storage bump (my 32 is almost full). I would hope a higher resolution rear camera as I use my iPhone as my camera a lot. One device to carry and always have it. I realize it is not going to replace a digital camera, but I do use it a lot. I was surprised that they went with the curved back on the iPad 2 when the earlier iPhones had that curved back and then they went with the square with the iPhone 4 (ipad 1 had that too). So will the iPhone 5 have a redesigned case like the ipad 2?

I don't care about megapixels. Just give me good optics. Look at the eight megapixel cameras on the Android phones. Just slapped in there so they could hype it.
This. Exactly. I had an Evo, which IIRC is an 8mp, and the pictures it took were horrendous.

Uhh... What? lol

Anyway, I agree with possibly having a better front facing camera. I could care less because I never use it, but many people do and it is pretty low quality at the moment. I also think it will get the dual core A5, and better graphics chipset (or whatever it is iPhone uses for games). And hopefully they'll come out with some new battery technology and implement that, cause I'd sure like to be able to get 8-10 hours of heavy use. Right now I'm lucky to get 5-6.

My fingers are already back there when I hold it. Why would I want to put something between the display and my line of sight when i don't have to? It's just convenience.

The concept is intriguing to me every time it comes up, yet I have a hard time imagining it being overly useful without a see-through LCD. Sure, you can get a general sense of where you're going to tap back there from intuition over time, but the accuracy will always be less than tapping directly on your target. Do you envision using the phone entirely this way or only for certain functions?

I would think like scrolling, maybe zooming, gestures (back to the no home button rumors), gaming
