Apple will be introducing the long-awaited iPhone 5 on Wednesday. After all these months of buzz and buildup, what analysts are hoping for is a real "wow factor."

Jason Moser of Motley Fool One is looking for the iPhone 5 to bring something drastically new and improved to the table. Compared with the iPhone 4 and 4S, this needs to be a truly "next generation" product that takes version differentiation to a whole new level.

It will also be interesting to see whether Apple can roll out any iPhone 5 features that haven't yet gone public. Apple is so widely followed, even all the way down to its suppliers, that it's progressively difficult for the company to maintain its veil of secrecy. If it's able to pull off a Steve Jobs-era "One more thing" tomorrow, that alone will be a mini-triumph -- there's nothing like a good surprise, especially coming from Apple.
