    Default iPhone 5 Enters Trial Production, Full Production Beginning Quarter 3


    A Chinese publication, China Times is reporting this morning that they have production details regarding Apple's fifth generation iPhone. According to the chinese translation, the new handset is in a "trial production" and will go into full production very soon, in the third quarter of this year. For anyone who's followed Apple's release schedules for the previous four generations of the iPhone, this should not come as any surprise.

    Further details in the article confirm other rumors we've heard about for the iPhone 5. China Times again states that we'll see a larger screen, supposedly to combat the onslaught of Android devices with larger screen sizes. Other rumors restated in the article include the inclusion of NFC technology, which the rumor mill has flip-flopped on, as well as an antenna redesign that would supposedly alleviate the well-documented issues with antenna design of the iPhone 4. There's also a mention of the A5 processor, which would be surprising not to see in the iPhone 5.

    Finally, the report discusses a new scratch-resistant metal chassis, again no major surprises. If this report is any indication, the new iPhone will feature much of the established rumors. It is expected that Apple will release the iPhone 5, barring production delays, in early summer 2011.

    I'll only be halfway through my contract by then, so I'll be waiting for iPhone 6 Looking forward to iOS5, which will hopefully arrive when the new iPhone does.

    Sweeeet. My contract will be up and ready for the new iPhone. Sooo glad I waited with my 3GS and didnt splurge on an iPhone 4. That A5 is gonna rock... I just hope they do a 64gb model. 32gb just isnt enough anymore.

    Every year I've been able to upgrade at the upgrade price. $200 and I've been able to get the latest phone. Selling ur old phone puts money in ur pocket!

    Definitely in the same boat as you. Stuck with the 3GS since October of 2009 and it was really hard NOT to go with iPhone 4 when it came out. But good things come to those who wait

    Third quarter production = 4th or 1st quarter release.

    I hope they meant Q2!

    Or, they may actually be referring to the VeriPhone.
    It's not where you've been, or where you're going..
    It's where you are.
    Reflect on the past, plan for the future, mod for today.

    So many reports suggesting a 4" screen make me think more and more that it will NOT have a 4" screen. Keep your expectations low and you will set yourself up to be somewhat pleased when it is officially released/announced. Set them too high and you will be sorely disappointed and might go make a rationally smart decision....such as buying an Android phone.

    I've been waiting for the 5. I hope they have the metal back. Or at least white. I need at least 64 if not more. I hope a trial run version isn't photo shy. I'd like to see it in the nude.
