Apple iPhone 4 Packing iPad A4 Chip

More iPhone 4 news following the scrutiny by Gawker’s Gizmodo.

Apparently, an unnamed industry source has mentioned that the new iPhone will use Apple’s own A4 processor. This is the same CPU as the iPad which means that iPhone 4G should be pretty nippy and will out-drag the iPhone 3GS and its ARM CPU.

What makes the in-house A4 chip attractive for the iPhone is that it’s a system-on-a-chip (SOC). Basically you get the main processor, graphics and other functions like the memory controller on a single silicon chunk.

Couple the A4 chip with that better (well it looks larger) camera and that higher res screen – iPhone HD anyone?

It’s certainly getting exciting! 🙂
