Analysts: iPhone 5 Still Set for September Launch, Will Have Larger Display

More iPhone 5 predictions are coming from analysts, this time via RBC Capital Markets and Sterne Agree.

Larger Display, Bigger Update Than Expected?

According to Shawn Wu from Sterne Agree, he notes to Business Insider the next iPhone will have a larger display, a similar form factor, but with a thinner bezel. Also, the refresh could contain more upgrades than expected. He also notes it will not have 4G LTE as battery life and network coverage is still a concern.

‘Cautious’ About the October iPhone 5 Debut

RBC analyst Mike Abramsky noted to investors a response to the October launch rumour from ATD. He pointed out three reasons why the September launch is more plausible.

1. Data from overseas supply chains indicate production starting in August and September

2. Apple executives mentioned during the previous quarterly earnings call that the company is planning a ‘major product transition’ slated for the end of September. Apple’s CFO mentioned the new product would impact the September quarter.

3. Rumours of AT&T employee blackout dates for vacations during the last two weeks of September, an action that has previously indicated iPhone launches.

Take what you want from these analysts, but according to our sources a September launch is still in the works.

    I’m sorry but the iPhone 4 is just too good to care about any new iPhone launch. 

    Having had it for over a year now, I am still amazed with it, it’s functionality, the camera quality, airplay functionality, speed, multitasking.. the list goes on. 3G is just fine, who needs 4G on a phone.  For what 1080p video on a 3 inch screen.. get serious.

    I agree, the iPhone 4 is still amazing. The Retina Display had me at ‘hello’.

    The only ppl that don’t care about a new iphone launch this fall are the ones that got the iphone 4 late last year or the ones that forked out forthe iphone 4.. Personally I can’t wait for the new iphone 5, especially if it has a larger display! Are you kidding me?! Bring it on! Glad I stuck with my 3GS!!

    I have the iPhone 4 and I too want the iPhone 5. It’ll be interesting to see all the people that say we don’t need the iPhone 5 going out to buy the new one anyway.

    Remember how we used to say “who needs dual core if you have a pentium 4″ or “I never use more then 60Gb of harddrive space!”…for that same reason an iPhone 5 is a very much needed product otherwise we would still be stuck at the iPhone 3G

    It’s needed, but the phone itself is not a marked improvement. The jump from iP4 to iP5 is not nearly as big as from 3Gs to iP4. The iOS update will cover most of the ,major improvements.

    If IP5 has a slight redesign or any kinda of bigger display, then that alone warrants an upgrade
