Expected to bring quite a few major improvements over the iPhone 4S, Apple’s next generation iPhone could become the company’s most important smartphone since the original iPhone cam out (back in 2007).
Not long ago, we’ve heard that the new iPhone would be launched in August or September. Now a report from Japanese website Macotakara suggests that production for the device has started in China – hence a launch in August or September is definitely plausible. The website also notes that the handset’s back panel includes aluminum, and a portion that’s partially covered with glass.

If all rumors surrounding it turn out to be true, the iPhone 5 will feature a display of 4 inch (or maybe more) with an unusual 1136 x 640 pixel resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio, quad-core processor, enhanced cameras, and should be a bit taller than the current iPhone model. What you’re seeing in the photo above is a possible iPhone 5 prototype (next to the iPhone 4S).
