The world technology is moving at a very fast rate, so in order to keep up with the moving technology is becoming almost impossible. Almost every month in 2012 few smartphones are being launched and the process is an ongoing since the demand is too high and the speed of manufacturing is constant. The world was desperately waiting for the Apple iPhone 5 Release Date last year in 2011, when Apple made an unexceptional business move by brining the Apple iPhone 4S instead. In this article we will highlight some of the design concepts of the Apple iPhone 5 along with some specifications rumours and some comparisons.
We were following some tweets, facebook updates and many online websites where when mentioned about Apple and smartphones, people are constantly asking “When is iPhone 5 coming out?” or “What is the release date for iPhone 5?” soon after a successful launch of the Apple iPhone 4S.
When Samsung and HTC announced the launch of two top rated smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 (May 2012) and HTC One X (April 2012), Apple should now announce the iPhone 5 release date so that people can plan for the purchase of the handset.
When is Apple iPhone 5 Release Date Scheduled For?
Before we get to answer the following question, there is no official confirmation as to “Will there be an iPhone 5?” launch or it will be called something totally different. Looking into the Apple iOS naming options, they have named their latest iOS as the Lion X and Google naming their latest OS as the Ice Cream Sandwich.
So keeping these strange naming options, we might see a different name to Apple iPhone 5. We will only find out when Apple officially declared the names during the iPhone 5 release date. There have been zillions of rumours about the design concepts of the Apple iPhone 5, but according to few leaked sources Apple has 4 to 5 prototypes they are considering to face the iPhone 5 with and one of them is currently used by LG Mobile.
Apple iPhone 5 Release Date Can Be Confirmed on June 2012?
There are various claims online that the new iphone will be released very soon in June 2012 at the WWDC event and according to two very good reliable sources 9to5mac.com and another ananymous person working in Foxconn (manufacturing company for Apple in China) correctly confirmed about the launching of iPhone 4S instead of Apple iPhone 5 when the whole world was expecting the launch of iPhone 5.
Now regarding the iPhone 5 release date announcement, Apple is hold the secret to their chests and this is now becoming one of the most highly wanted news around the globe. According to 9to5mac.com claims the iPhone 5 is currently into the production phase and sadly the production will not complete till the summer time 2012. So the possibility of the iPhone 5 release date could be in June 2012 or delayed and the correct information can be found at the WWDC event in June 2012. Only Apple know the correct date and the accurate design patterns for the awaiting new iPhone smartphone.
Will The Announcement of Apple iPhone 5 Release Date Upset Existing Customers?
People were eagerly waiting last year 2011 for the release of the iPhone 5, when Apple disappointed them with the release of the iPhone 4S, despite of the disappointment the sales of the Apple iPhone 4S rocket high and is constantly growing as we speak.
The trend shows that over millions of iPhone 4S have been solved around the world and if Apple were to announce the iPhone 5 release date then what would the existing iPhone 4S customer feel who waited a long time for the iPhone 5 launch and instead purchased the Apple iPhone 4S?
Well, for Apple it’s business and they will not launch the new iPhone 5 until then make the target amount for the iPhone 4S. This is the same trend happened when the first version of iPhone 3G was launched and it created the biggest buzz in the mobile industry.
iPhone 5 Specifications and Rumours
Looking at the current iPhone 4S with the best Retina display, 16GB to 64GB in-build memory, A5 processor, multi-tasking, iOS v5, sleek design, 8MP camera with HD recording and flash, better connectivity, HSDPA+ capability, 3G/4G connectivity and many more made the handset the most demanding handset for the current year 2012.
The design of the Apple iPhone 4S is very similar to that of the iPhone 4 and as a result, Apple has to come with a different design pattern/concepts so that it would not upset consumers who are eagerly waiting for the iPhone 5 release date. The iPhone 5 has to atleast match the current iPhone 4S specs and should have advanced features and specifications for the device to be the flagship device for Apple and get crowned as the best smartphone for the year 2012.
iPhone 5 Concept and Suggested Specs
We have seen in various websites and YouTube and other video streaming sites showing different design concepts and prototypes of the iPhone 5. We have seen suggested 4G technology, bigger display, expendable keyboard, transparent glass body, laser graphics and many more in videos but these can only be clarified once iPhone 5 release date is confirmed and also confirmed specification by Apple.
Apple iPhone 5 Price Expected?
Since the Apple iPhone 4S is currently trading as £499 sim free and £35 to £40 per month on contract from the top 5 mobile networks in UK, suggests that the new iPhone 5 would be in the range of £500 to £600 sim free and contracts would be in the range of £40 to £50 per month.
Apple iPhone 5 vs Apple iPhone 4S – Should I Wait?
If you are waiting for the iPhone 5 release date then we believe you could be waiting for a long time, since the release date is not confirmed yet and it has shown from previous trends that Apple often makes delays in launching their new products than expected.
The iPhone 4S is a more stable handset with 3.5″ LED-backlit TFT screen, Retina display, 8MP camera, A5 processor with the latest iOS 5 and Siri, making it the most advanced handset you would ever need. If you are eagerly waiting for the iPhone 5 release date then you can wait for the launch date, or else if you need advanced smartphone then iPhone 4S would do the job you need.
