iPhone 5 release date hinted at by Apple as September

Apple has hinted at a September iPhone 5 arrival during a recent profits call

Apple has hinted at the iPhone 5 release date adding further backing to belief the fifth-generation Apple handset will launch in September suggesting the device will land before the end of Q3.

Whilst revealing record iPhone and iPad quarterly sales that saw the company shift more than 20 million of its market leading smartphones in the past three months Apple has hinted at an imminent new addition to the iDevice family making reference to a “future product transition”.

Having been quizzed on his predicted 12% decline in revenue for the upcoming third quarter concluding at the end of September, Apple’s Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer suggested the drop in profits would be caused by new product arrivals.

"A lot going on in the fall with iOS 5 and iCloud," Oppenheimer announced adding a “future product transition that we will not talk about today" will have an impact on the quarter’s sales figures.

Recent iPhone 5 rumours have suggested the mooted handset will touch down running the same 1GHz dual-core A5 processor found in the iPad 2 alongside an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p  Full HD video recording capabilities.

Earlier this week pictures of a reported iPhone 5 prototype handset leaked online claiming to reveal the upcoming handset’s iPhone 4-esque form factor.

What features does the iPhone 5 handset need to boast in order to reclaim top spot in the fiercely competitive smartphone market? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
