A Taipei-based analyst has claimed that Apple’s next-gen iPhone will feature a touch-sensitive casing along with a “more advanced” camera.

“Apple’s going to put a lot of innovation, not just on the hardware, but also on the software of the new iPhone,” Goldman Sachs analyst Robert Chen told Bloomberg.

“The handset will [include] a new plastic casing similar to that used for Apple’s touch-panel Magic Mouse released last year.”

Chen explained that upgrading to a 5-megapixels camera will bring the handset up to speed Google’s recently released Nexus One.

He added that the new device – which could be released as early as June – may include an updated version of the iPhone OS along with an “overhaul” of Apple’s application store.
