iPhone 5 release date set for August with dramatic redesign

Apple is reported to be readying a radically redesigned iPhone 5 for launch this summer with iOS 5. The news comes off the back of several reports that suggest the iPhone 5 release date has been set for mid-August

The Apple iPhone 5 is to be officially unveiled in August not September as previously reported and sport a dramatically refreshed form factor, new reports have suggested.

Refuting the repeated claims that Apple will wait until September to formally showcase the eagerly awaited iPhone 5, gadget blog BGR has proclaimed that “a reliable source” has “independently confirmed” the next-gen Apple blower will land this August with a “radical new case design.”

Although no further details are given on this radical new design, the new reports quash rumours that the fifth generation iPhone handset would be nothing more than a software overhaul. Latest reports have pegged the iPhone 5 landing with the same ARM A5 1GHz dual-core processor as the iPad 2, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities and a larger 720p HD display.

“Apple may hold an event in the beginning or middle of August to announce the new iPhone, with availability to follow in the last week of August,” the reported leakster claimed. Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 5 alongside the recently revealed iOS 5 later this year.
