The legacy left behind by the genius, Steve jobs, is not limited to iPhone 4S. According to Ashok Kumar, an analyst at Rodman & Renshaw, who wrote in his research note last week that the iPhone 4S “was not the last project Jobs worked on.”

Knowing the fact that he was run of time Steve Job’s left the work on iPhone 4S  to his team while he dedicated all his time to designing a new product. Let us call this device the iPhone 5.

According to a research note of Ashok Kumar, the new iPhone 5 “was the last project that Steve Jobs was intimately involved with from concept to final design. For that reason…this product will establish the high water mark for iPhone volumes.”

Kumar predicted that it will be the next-generation iPhone 5 which will become a ‘cult classic’ due to Job’s deep involvement. The information on several resources differs concerning the design of the new Apple’s product.

There are issues that the iPhone 5 will have almost the same characteristics as the iPhone 4S. It seems to have a slimmer profile and larger screen size although the same proportions as the iPhone 4S has will be saved. But there are also the sources who claim to have knowledge of the redesign features. Some Apple fans created an approximate design of the iPhone 5, based on a multitude of specs leaked online.

Thus, the beginning of a new spate of rumors can be caused, but we can still hope that the iPhone 5 will become something brand new. The redesigned iPhone 4 was performed after the release of the iPhone 3GS, and Apple can face some troubles while creating a new designed phone without increasing the inches of the screen.

It is also expected that the upcoming generation will be able to try the phone with the possibility of Long Term Evolution, or LTE, what is often referred to as 4G. It should be said that some hardware upgrades of iPad 3 such as an improved gyroscope, memory capacity, a new processor and some other parameters can be used in the iPhone 5.

It can become one of the major cosmetic and internal upgrade currently providing by Apple. Some new advancements are also expected. People predict some updates to iOS and new support of the hardware. Will it be iOS 6? Or will we see the upgraded iOS 5? Or maybe Siri 2? Apple’s plans on the software front are still unknown.

When the range of the new Job’s project is concerned it is easy to get the idea why the iPhone 4S hasn’t undergone plenty of changes when compare it to the preceding iPhone 3GS. But still the iPhone 5 is expected to present some new advances and outward changes. The Apple fans are sure that their favorite phone will remain the best phone and will maintain its positions on the market.

“The iPhone 5 will be performed in the summer of 2012 around the time of Apple’s Developer’s Conference” was said in Kumar’s research note. So, Apple’s fans, we have nothing but wait.
