Yesterday we reported on the iPhone 5 with a rumor claiming the phone will launch in the first week of September. Now other sources are claiming this won’t just be a faster iPhone 4S but a new design.
BGR is reporting that while Apple is indeed testing an iPhone4S in a similar form factor to the iPhone 4 with a speed-bumped processor, they are also readying the launch of a full-blown iPhone 5 with a new form factor:
We have been told by a reliable source to expect a radical new case design for the upcoming iPhone, though we have not been given any additional details surrounding the design of the new iPhone case. What about a release, then? The consensus is that Apple is going to announce the next-generation iPhone at the company’s annual September event, traditionally focused on iPods, but we have heard it’s quite possible Apple will break tradition. According to our source, Apple may hold an event in the beginning or middle of August to announce the new iPhone, with availability to follow in the last week of August. We’re not sure if that means the iPod event will be moved up slightly, or if this will be an iPhone-specific event. Thisismynext reported earlier that the upcoming iPhone 5 would feature a new teardrop-shaped case design.
