Apple Confirms iPhone 5 Launch on 12th September

Apple has started sending out invites to its San Francisco event on 12th September. The event is rumored to be where Apple will showcase the iPhone 5 and possibly iPad mini.

We do not know much about iPad mini, which is expected to be a smaller 7-inch tablet. But if you notice the shadow in the invite, it confirms the iPhone 5.

It was no surprise that a new phone would be introduced but some might have wondered if Apple would called it simply “New iPhone”, taking inspiration from “New iPad”.

Expected features of iPhone 5

  • The phone will run on the latest iOS6 platform.
  • iPhone 5 is expected to be the same screen width of 4.08 inches. The phones though is expected to be taller than its predecessors.
  • There should be a host of improvements with a 12 MP Camera.
  • The phone should ideally be running on a Quad-core process @ 1Ghz.
  • The phone is also expected to have newly design ear plugs by Apple.

What exactly will be known about the iPhone 5, will only be clear next week.

I have got to know that some Chinese handset replica company copied the whole design of iPhone and they are planning to go to court if the new iPhone design matches with their design.The point is they had copied the design from the leaked iPhone picture and their design is released before iPhone released their design in the market.So, what do you think? Will it make any problem to iPhone 5?

@Himadri: I am not sure if this will have an impact on Apple sales in the US. it might be dragged to courts in China. The only problem here being iPhones are manufactured in China but still early days to talk about impact on iPhone 5.

This is the best time to launch iPhone 5, Samsung have no new launches and they are facing a ban in U.S.
iPhone 5 would be a something awesome, I read that Steve jobs himself did some design changes for the new iPhone before he died last year.
