Rumours regarding the iPhone 5


There is a lot of speculation on the possibility of an iPhone 5 launching in 2012 and the rumours are once again flying about thick and fast. In the past month engineering samples of the device have apparently been sighted, claims of pre-orders being accepted for the phone in China have been made, as well as claims that the new handset is already in production.

Tech website CNET has compiled a list of the latest Apple iPhone 5 rumours, confining itself to information released in the month of July. Among the unconfirmed information is the sighting of an apparent engineering sample of the device which suggests a larger screen and the inclusion of a microphone in the handset.

A recent Reuters report stated that sellers on Chinese e-commerce portal Taobao are accepting pre-orders for Apple’s latest, though there has been no delivery time given and Apple has not confirmed when it will be available. The phone is being priced between $160 and $1,100, according to the reports.

Another Chinese blog claims that the handset is in production, citing the existence of iPhone 5 cases as evidence. These cases also seem to suggest a taller phone, as does another report from a Taiwan-based blog which claims to have seen an iPhone 5 frame which would permit a 4″ screen.

Of course this is all unconfirmed at the moment but the only consistency appears to be the larger screen area. For everything else, we’ll have to defer to Apple for now.
