Apple’s iPhone 5 will launch this September with a faster processor and an improved camera, according to recent reports.
The latest version of Apple’s flagship product will upgrade to the A5 processor used by the iPad 2, while the five-megapixel camera will be replaced with an eight-megapixel version.
The new reports follow Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco earlier this month, which has traditionally been the backdrop for the unveiling of the latest iPhone since the first iteration was introduced by Apple CEO Steve Jobs in 2007.
However, the WWDC proved to be software-focused, with iCloud and iOS 5 taking centre stage. Industry speculation now suggests that the iPhone 5 will launch in Q4 of 2011.
Meanwhile, industry insiders have also claimed that the iPhone 5 could also have radical ‘tear drop shaped’ redesign when it is eventually unveiled.
A cheaper version of the iPhone 4 aimed at developing countries is also earmarked for release later on this year, according to industry sources. The cheaper model will reportedly use chips and a display of similar quality to the current iPhone 4.
