iPhone 5 Ready For Production, Summer Launch Possible, Says Foxconn Source

There is no denying the mammoth success of the iPhone 4S, after all, it is an iPhone and it is bound to be successful. But it seems that those who want to have a brand-new redesigned iPhone will have to wait for the next iPhone that will be coming next year. And now, we've come across some information that the iPhone 5 is already slated for production.

iPhone 5 Production
The report came from 9to5Mac, citing a reliable source at China's Foxconn, it is said that the next-generation iPhone is already up for production. According to the source, many different sample devices have been floating around (although the variations are only of the slightest), so it will be hard to determine which one will make it to the final design. There are however elements in the design that the sample devices have in common:

4+ inch display (made by LG on at least one of them)

No teardrop-shaped devices as were rumored in the lead up to the iPhone 4S. Samples so far have been symmetrical in thickness. Also longer/wider.

None of the sample devices have the iPhone 4/4S form factor

None of the devices are final versions

If all of these turn out to be true, it is interesting to note that the new iPhone won't be sporting the strongly rumored teardrop design. One can only wonder how Apple will handle the next-gen iPhone's redesign. Another thing to note is that with the iPhone 4S, production didn't gear up until late Spring last year. But if this rumor turns out to be true, we could be looking at an iPhone launch at around Summer or WWDC, which was Apple's typical release cycle prior to the iPhone 4S.

So will we see a new iPhone announcement in June's WWDC? [via 9to5Mac]

    Does anybody else know it won’t be called the iPhone 5? There was the first iPhone, then the iPhone 3G, named for being a 3G phone, instead of calling it the iPhone 2, then the iPhone 3GS, the iPhone 4, the fourth iPhone, then the iPhone 4S is the fifth iPhone. The iPhone 5 would be a misnomer. It will likely get a brand new name, perhaps the iPhone 4G (assuming it will be a 4G phone) or if it gets a number, it would be the iPhone 6, because it will be the sixth iPhone, not the fifth

    Apple’s products just keep getting better and better. One can expect that the next iPhone will be exciting enough to spend more of our hard earned cash on it. Life without my iPhone is no longer an option.
