Apple iPhone 4G to get Front Facing Camera – Rumour

We hear a number of rumours about new Apple [AAPL] products when a new launch is expected. The last rumour indicated that the next gen iPhone would get a Super AMOLED screen that is created by Samsung.

The next rumour was started due to a patent that was spotted that is entitled “Apparatus and Method for Compensating for Variations in Digital Cameras” where a drawing of an iPod was shown which appears to have a camera in the bezel that is forward facing. The patent also covers details on both iPod’s and iPhone’s which is where the 4G iPhone with front facing camera rumour is being started.

A number of people are wanting a front facing camera on their iPhone, so perhaps Apple are finally listening? It is unknown at the moment if and when the next gen iPhone will be launched, but following on tradition it seems we will be hearing sometime in the middle of this year. Some specs have also included (as rumours) a better quality 5 megapixel camera on the back, removable battery, Super AMOLED screen mentioned above that uses Samsung’s technology and perhaps a quicker CPU.

As with all rumours, they are to be taken with a pinch of salt till the official announcement is made at which point we can see which ones were totally made up, or which ones were just lucky guesses.
