iPhone 5 release date leaked as September with A5 chip

Insider sources reveal iPhone 5 release details

New reports have suggested the Apple iPhone 5 will launch in September with the A5 dual-core processor and 8-megapixel camera

Apple is to officially release the iPhone 5 in September with the same A5 dual-core processor found in the iPad 2, a new report from Bloomberg has claimed.

Contradicting claims from yesterday which suggested the mooted iPhone 5 would touch down in August with a radically redesigned form factor, the Bloomberg report suggests the next-generation Apple blower will land in September as the company’s first dual-core smartphone.

Citing “two people familiar with the plans,” the latest reports claim the iPhone 5 will boost its hardware credentials with the 1GHz dual-core processor from the iPad 2 and an 8-megapixel camera that would see the device challenge the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S II handset.

Set to run the recently unveiled iOS 5, the iPhone 5 is the most eagerly awaited smartphone set to hit the market with the undisclosed sources also reporting that Apple is also “testing a new version of the iPad that has a higher resolution screen, similar to the one now used in the iPhone 4.”

When will Apple finally end the seemingly endless rumours and launch the iPhone 5? August? September? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
