As you all know, Apple's latest and greatest smartphone, the iPhone 4S, has just been released last October. While it is no doubt a great device on its own, it is not exactly what everybody had in mind when the word iPhone 5 comes to mind. But according to a new report, we may see the next generation iPhone as early as June.
According to report by the Chinese newspaper Commercial Times, a certain source at Daiwa Securities claims that Apple will be announcing the iPhone 5 during the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco in June. If anyone can recall, WWDC is traditionally the event where Apple announces their next iPhone. However, WWDC 2011 breaks that tradition where no new hardware was announce and it was not until October before Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S.
And if this report indeed turns out to be true, then it seems that Apple will be restoring back the tradition of summertime release for new iPhones. Take note that this seems to coincide with a previous report that the iPhone 5 is geared-up for production and may release this upcoming summer, according to a Foxconn source. As for the specs of the rumored iPhone 5, we are getting consistent reports that it will sport a larger display, a symmetrical design and will be utilizing glass-to-glass touch panel technology. From analysts to unnamed sources, it seems that the next iPhone will be a significantly redesigned one.
At this point, all we can do is speculate. Will we actually see a new redesigned iPhone as early as June? [via CBSNews]Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
