Seems like these touch screens are really being updated these days! If you have been following us properly you must be knowing that Apple is about to launch a fresh new model of iPhone sometime very soon. Experts all around the world are now talking about what the new model might look like and what features would be on it. This is by far the most talked about phone of the year. Goldman Sachs’ analyst Robert Chen is of the view that this new iPhone will probably be called iPhone 4G.

He has also given his ideas about how the phone might look like. According to him the casing could be touch sensitive, similar to the Apple Magic Mouse, the Mouse might replace mechanical buttons with a touch sensitive plastic shell. This would be one novel feature on the iPhone giving you the ability to use touch on the back of the handset, a thing unheard of in any other touchscreen, at the moment.

There is a probability that there will be a 5MP camera as opposed to the 3.2 in the previous version. Rumours are that a lot of changes and updates are expected in both the hardware and software including a possible upgrade to the iPhone OS. I should also state here that Chen, based in Taipei for Goldman, is a part of Asia's top ranked technology hardware research team. According to his opinion the phone will start being manufactured around April, to be released in the markets in around June or July.
