'Reliable' Rumor: iPhone 5 Set To Release in August 2011?
The title says it all. The highly anticipated iPhone 5 has been rumored for an August 2011 release late in the month. BGR insists the phone will be announced in an unusual Apple event in the beginning or middle of August with the phone hitting the shops in late August.
So far, BGR suggests and confidently says that the phone will have a 'radical new case design.' It will look nothing like the previous iPhone's and is set to stun Apple fans, according to reports.
Most Apple pundits so far believe that the iPhone 5 or maybe an iPhone 4S will release around the same time as new iPods (September). However, today, new reports are very confident of almost a surprise Apple event where the iPhone 5 will be announced. Not just a few tweaks, but a huge difference between it and the previous versions.
Joshua Topolsky on the other hand insists the iPhone 5 will get a whole new design. He has created a mock up image of the phone with the screen going from edge to edge. It also suggests there will be a bigger home screen button and that the back of the phone will be very similar to the iPod Touch with a curved back.
Other reports suggest that the iPhone 5 will run the same ARM A5 1GHz dual-core processor as the famous & popular iPad 2. It will sport an 8-megapixel camera with the ability to shoot 1080p HD video and will have a 720p HD screen.
It is almost guaranteed though that the next generation iPhone, whether it be the iPhone 4S or the iPhone 5, will definitely run iOS 5. There is no doubt about it as Apple already announced it at this year's WWDC event and what better way to release it then with the iPhone 5?
Take a look at Joshua Topolsky's mock-up of the iPhone 5 below:
