New iPhone 4S / 5 tipped for September launch (again)
While there’s still confusion regarding the name of Apple’s fifth-generation iPhone (will it be iPhone 5? iPhone 4S? Something else?), here’s new pseudo-evidence that the smartphone will be introduced pretty soon.
Bloomberg has it that “people familiar with the plans” say the new iPhone will arrive in September. We’ve certainly heard about this before, as well as about the features of Apple’s next-gen handset, which should include a dual-core A5 processor, and an 8MP camera.
Design-wise, it’s said that the new iPhone will “closely resemble” the iPhone 4 (pictured below). Needless to say, the iPhone 4S / iPhone 5 will run iOS 5.
Bloomberg also reports that Apple’s about to finish a smaller and cheaper iPhone (iPhone Nano?) that should be targeted at users in developing markets.
The website also mentions the iPad 3, which reportedly has a display with a resolution “about one-third higher than” that of the iPad 2’s display. Previous reports had it that the resolution could be 5-6 times higher, but, well, nothing can be confirmed for now.
