An analyst from Sterne Agee has hinted at the possibility that the upcoming iPhone 5 will be a significant upgrade from the previous model of the device and will be considered as a true world phone by offering both 3G as well as 4G network support.

According to Shaw Wu, the upcoming iPhone 5 will increase the appeal of the device throughout the world even as it offers a major refresh from its predecessor.

Three major enhancements are expected from the upcoming model of the iPhone including a bigger screen size, new design, and support for 4G LTE networks. These new features on the upcoming iPhone 5 will allow the device to be more appealing to potential users of the device compared to the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S. It will also tempt present users of the iPhone to upgrade to the upcoming flagship smartphone of Apple.

Earlier reports have hinted that the upcoming iPhone 5 will feature a four-inch screen display, redesigned body and 4G LTE network support.

Wu added that the upcoming iPhone 5 will also be made more appealing to consumers in China, which is considered as the biggest smartphone market in the world.

The upcoming iPhone 5 will reportedly be compatible with the proprietary TD – SCDMA 3G network of China Mobile, according to the analyst. Even as China Unicom and China Mobile have started to evaluate the use of 4G LTE networks, its full adoption may not be coming soon, which makes it important for Apple to offer 3G support for the upcoming iPhone 5 in order to increase its market in China.

By giving Siri the capability of understanding and speaking Cantonese and Mandarin, the iOS 6 has already initiated increased support in the Chinese market. The new mobile OS of Apple will facilitate the input of Chinese characters as well as integrate a number of online services in China including Tudou, Youku, Sina Weibo, and Baidu.

Merging the iOS 6 with the upcoming iPhone 5 will facilitate the expansion of Apple into China through China Mobile.
