As you know, we have been citing different sources to give the exact date for the release of the much-anticipated iPhone 5. Well now, we have another more reliable source The New York Times.
The newspaper has quoted some workers of Apple, saying:
We’re just weeks away from the announcement of the new Apple iPhone 5, according to an Apple employee who asked not to be named because he was not allowed to speak publicly for the company.
These employees have also defined the shape of the new smartphone and said that it will be different in design as well the features. They also pointed out that the new iPhone will also contain an 8-megapixel camera, which is also a great improvement from its predecessors’ 5-megapixel camera.
Also hinting at the design and construction of the iPhone 5 was an iPhone case rendered by one of the most reliable case maker in the market Case-Mate. The company unintentionally published a page with different case designs for the upcoming phone that suggested a complete redesign.
The New York Times according to its sources says Case-Mate designs are very accurate to the new design.
From descriptions I’ve heard of the new iPhone from Apple employees, the images seemed potentially authentic. But it seems that Case-Mate might be sneakily trying to take advantage of the excitement over the phone by posting and then unposting the images. These things rarely happen accidentally, especially when it comes to new Apple products.
Sneaky public relations tactics aside, an engineer familiar with the new iPhone said it would be fairly different from the iPhone 4 — including on the inside.
Meanwhile, 9to5mac reports there will be two new iPhone models that will be released at the same time. One model will be slightly different from the iPhone 4 but will host almost the same features along with a lower price tag, and the second model will be the new iPhone 5. The sources of 9to5mac further went on saying that the new iPhone will be incredibly lighter and firmer and will host an amazing camera which will be able to rival any point and shoot camera.
Well the announcement of the new phones will be done in a few weeks with release expected in the upcoming month. We can do nothing but wait for the iPhone 5 to reveal itself to us. In the meanwhile, check out our complete iPhone 5 Rumour Roundup.
