"Yes, new iPhone will be an A6," Dickson succinctly stated.
Details of the A6 are still unknown at this time, but the smart money is on it being a quad-core processor, perhaps a derivative of Samsung's Exynos 4. The current iPhone 4S features a dual-core A5 chip, while the third generation iPad features an A5X processor with faster graphics.
