Apple to host event on September 7 – iPhone 5 expected
With WWDC 2011 passing without any iPhone-related announcement, the world expects Apple to unveil its next-generation smartphone sometime next month. We’re now hearing that this may happen on September 7 – according to Japanese website Kodawarisan and “a source in the know”, Apple will host an event on this date.
In the last few years, the Cupertino company has unveiled new iPods in September, but now a new iPhone – possibly called iPhone 5 – will likely also be announced (since, well, they have to do it during a major event). Anyway, even if the new iPhone will be announced on September 7, it may not hit the market until October. Of course, all this is speculation for now.
As heard many times before, the iPhone 5 should feature a dual-core processor, more RAM, 8MP rear camera, and possibly a larger display. The handset will run the new iOS 5 (officially announced in early June).
