According to a new report by iMore, the new iPhone (iPhone 5,1) featuring 3.5″ display, 4G LTE chip and a micro-dock connector will arrive in October 2012. The same source had previously reported that Apple is planning to introduce a smaller dock connector in the next iPhone which will help reduce the overall size of the handset. The report also claims that like all previous iPhone announcements, the new iPhone will likely be revealed with a new iOS version i.e iOS 6.
Quoting from the source:
First, the new iPhone will be 4G LTE compatible. That shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, considering the new iPad supports LTE and it’s hard to imagine Apple giving the iPad a feature like that and not passing it on to the iPhone. So look for that this fall.
Second is the timeframe. We’ve mentioned October 2012 as the current release schedule for iPhone 5,1 before and it sounds like that’s still the plan. The exact date almost certainly won’t be determined until it gets closer to launch, but the iPhone sounds locked to a fall cycle for the immediate future.
So to sum up, iPhone 5,1 is on track for:
- Similar if not same sized screen (currently 3.5-inch but not set in stone)
- 4G LTE radio
- New “micro dock” connector
- Fall/October 2012 release
Well, what do you think about this one guys?
