Earlier on, we reported that Apple is rumored to be experimenting with the new A5X CPU in a prototype of the next-generation iPhone, which is now expected to arrive in October this year.

The processor, which made its debut on the new iPad, is rumored to be featured in the highly-anticipated fifth-generation iPod touch. Both the iPhone and iPod touch are expected to have significantly new designs this year.

An upgrade to the A5X and its dedicated graphics processor would mean much better graphics performance and perhaps the ability to drive much higher resolution displays. But whether the new iPod or iPhone comes with a larger screen along with the higher resolution, is still a mystery.
