Now that the latest iPhone 4S has been out for more than two months, the time is about ripe for rumors and speculations about the next generation iPhone to come. Now we've come across some report that the next iPhone is said to be launched by Apple by fall of next year, along with other interesting tidbits. Details after the jump.
The report came straight from BGR claiming that they have information surrounding the iPhone 5 coming from a close source. According to the source, the next iPhone will be released in the fall of 2012, around the same time of the year when the iPhone 4S launched, so that will be around October. The most interesting detail in the report is that Apple will be incorporating new design elements in the next generation iPhone.
BGR has learned that Apple is planning to utilize a rubber or plastic material into the iPhone 5. The material will most likely be similar to the ones that are used in Apple's bumper cases and it will built-in into the next iPhone. It is quite possible that the material will be utilized as a bezel that will be surrounding the front edge of the iPhone 5 and the bezel will serve two purposes.
First, it will join the glass iPhone face with a new aluminum back plate. It will also cover a redesigned antenna system that surrounds the device, allowing Apple to build the rear case out of aluminum without having to use a large plastic insert above the antennas as the company does on its iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G.
Previous reports indicate that the next generation iPhone will be utilizing the same aluminum case as the iPad 2 and it will be sporting a larger 4-inch screen as well.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
