A SIM-less iPhone 4S?

May 31st, 2011 Posted in Apple News, Industry News

According to an anonymous source, Macotakara reported that the new 2011 iPhone (“iPhone 4S”) will use an ARM Cortex-A9 processor (Apple A5) with the same form factor as the iPhone 4. However, we still have no idea whether the new processor will have a single CPU or is dual-core.

The report also said the iPhone 4S will have a SIM-less design along with 3-4 internal antennas that will allow the device compatible with both GSM and CDMA networks.

As for the SIM-less design, we first heard this rumor back in late 2010, when Apple was said to be working with digital security firm Gemalto to create a custom SIM card that would exist as a built-in chip inside the iPhone to allow users to activate their devices with a broad array of carriers. Orange CEO Stephane Richard essentially confirmed that Apple had explored this “sim-less” option but had also indicated that Apple had decided against using it.
