  • Rumor: iPhone 5 to Drop During 4th Week of June

    The latest reports out of Asia - though some are already attempting to debunk it - suggest that the iPhone 5 (mock image above) will make a late June 2011 entry into the marketplace, even though Apple may still unveil the device earlier in the month at the company's Worldwide Developer's Conference, which begins June 6th in San Francisco.

    Korean news site ETNews.co.kr reveals today that Apple will roll out the fifth generation iPhone during the 4th week of June. Information surrounding the release comes as Korean providers SK Telecom and KT are believed to be among the first who will receive and carry the iPhone 5 upon its debut.

    As always, any unconfirmed reports regarding the iPhone 5 - or any Apple product for that matter - must be taken with a grain of salt. Still, it is worth noting that a series of recent stories and like-minded reports indicate that earlier suspicions of a fall 2011 iPhone 5 release may be inaccurate. If the latest report out of Asia is correct, it means Apple will retain precedent and once again roll out a new-gen iPhone during the summer.

    Of course, Apple may have originally planned a summer release, but recent events - from product component shortages to the Japanese earthquake - may now force a late-summer iPhone 5 debut. If Sony CEO Howard Stringer's recent comments have been accurately interpreted, the 8MP Sony-built camera coming with the iPhone 5 has already thrown the new product's launch off schedule. Over the weekend, Stringer alluded to the Japanese earthquake hampering iPhone 5 production by seriously damaging a Sony camera sensor plant.

      Might as well wait for the iphone 5 because if you decide you'd rather have an iphone 4 then the price will drop a little(usually $50).

      This borderlines crazy conspiracy but what if late release sources are being fed misleading information to weed out the squealers? Unlikely but fun to think about.

      Even if that was the new iPhone 5 I wouldn't buy it at all, It's so ugly.
      Apple has done at making electronics and computers almost elegant, But if this came out as it shows then it would look horrible. Sorry Apple, but it's true.

      Whats the point of a white iPhone 4? It's been almost a year...forget about it. If anything a white iPhone 5 but even that might be pushing. If you gave me a choice if a black 5 vs a white 4...I would think most would go with the latest and greatest.

      Gave my wife the 4 and using a 3G...gotta hold out for another 3 months (hopefully that's it).

      I upgraded to IPhone 4 just 2 months ago but since I use the phone so freaking much Dual core processors may be worth it. I may upgrade later in 2011

      Mod edit: I am positive that you could have made a better statement than this right?

      Does it matter what picture they use? Is the picture the prime show of the article? Jeez you're rude. i guess thats why you're in mmi and not apple...you're just not cut out to be a magical thinker. Princess.

      On the other hand, I love the look of it except the front...i'm still a little shy of it. If they release it as such I probably won't buy it...it just looks weird. I feel as if the icons will just fall out of my phone.

      I am really looking forward to an iPhone with a bigger screen. That's the feature I'm most excited about. Dual core is nice too lol

      Although the phone in the picture would be cool- as long as it didn't break in half with the touch of a finger- it's highly disproportional.
