In what would be a huge coup for Now Network, BGR’s Johnathan Geller confirming and Wall Street Journal’s Marketplace Editor Dennis Berman, is reporting, that the iPhone 5 will be an exclusive deal with Sprint, for $20 billion worth of iPhones over the next four years.

Sprint’s iPhone 5 will be a 4G WiMAX based device, although we think that this will be a dual band with CDMA device as well. Verizon and AT&T are expected to get the iPhone 4S this quarter but expect both companies to have LTE versions of the iPhone 5 sometime next year.

BGR is reporting that Sprint’s iPhone 5 will have:

In this scenario, the iPhone 4S Apple will introduce tomorrow will feature the following:

  • A low voltage Apple A5 CPU (it won’t be the same as the iPad 2 chip, clock for clock).
  • Updated front and back camera sensors. FaceTime HD in the front, 8 megapixel 1080p HD video recording in the back.
  • Multiband 3G Qualcomm chipset — North American & International GSM/UMTS/HSPA bands for AT&T and Global carriers, North American CDMA & International GSM/UMTS/HSPA bands for Verizon and Sprint.
  • NFC support
  • Metal or “premium” plastic on the back case.
  • Faster CPU.
  • Larger 4-inch screen, similar to LG’s NOVA display but with a higher resolution.
  • 1GB of RAM.
  • Slightly larger design overall, but thinner and with a larger battery.
  • 32GB of storage.
  • iPhone 5 exclusive software and APIs (Assistant).
  • Dedicated Assistant button, possibly integrated with the new home button, “think gestures or a two-stage button like a camera shutter key).
