With the all the iPhone 5 leaks in recent weeks and months, Apple's going to have to reach far up its sleeve to pull something out if it hopes to surprise anyone. We know the iPhone 5 is going to have a larger touchscreen, smaller dock connector, and 4G LTE
connectivity. It also seems likely Apple's next smartphone will sport an A6 processor.
Sonny Dickson, a 9to5Mac researcher and hacker, posted a photo to Twitter
showing the iPhone 5's logic board containing an A6 chip.

"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.
