South Korea Says, 4th Generation iPhone To Launch April 2010

With all of the iPhone and Tablet news coming out of France, South Korea did not want to be left behind!

A report from The Korea Times is claiming that Apple is prepping the launch of their next iPhone for an April 2010 release. The news is said to come from an executive with KT, the exclusive iPhone carrier in South Korea. According to the report however, this early launch is not a public-wide debut. Instead, the device is supposedly launching to large Korean corporate clients. The public release is then to be June 2010.

The KT executive even goes so far as to claim the new iPhone will have an OLED display, video chat capability and a removable battery (LOL!). As any Apple fan/customer knows, the iPhone battery is non-removable and Apple has even expanded non-removable batteries to its MacBook line of computers.

They said the coming 4G iPhones will be equipped with organic light emitting diode (OLED) screens on surface and live video chat functionalities, while removable battery is highly likely.

I am confident that we can file this rumour in the definitely-not-happening category.
