According to Hudson Square Research’s Todd Rethemeier, not only does he think that the next iPhone will carry the name of the iPhone 5, not the iPhone 4S which was suggested by many, but he also thinks that the next iPhone will feature 4G connectivity, but only for AT&T’s network, not Verizon’s.

“For AT&T iPhone 5 users, this could mean download speeds of 5-10 Mbps, compared to less than 1 Mbps for a Verizon user. Certainly, when an LTE iPhone is introduced AT&T would lose some of its marketing advantage. However, even when that happens, the phone will be backwards compatible, so the AT&T iPhone 6 would be able to roam onto the HSPA+ network when an LTE network is not available, giving AT&T an advantage in suburban and rural areas for several more years, we believe.”

With all rumors it’s hard to believe until we actually hear from Apple themselves which might be a while considering how tight-lipped Apple usually is, unless of course they decide to surprise us at WWDC next week with an announcement of the next iPhone device. I guess until then we will have to wait and see how it all turns out.
