    Default 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.

    OK....Don't quite get this response, but ok (I guess??!!??)

    I have been following this story closely since my contract just expired with AT&T. I will not get the i4 if these reports are true. I can wait until the summer but I don't know if I can wait until third/fourth quarter of this year.

    I always planned to get the fifth gen. phone, since I always skip a generation and I am ready to upgrade my 3GS.

    Really bad mockup. That back/side is tolerable but the front is awful. NoWhereElse did a great iPhone 5 Rumor roundup that shows a great mockup there as well as a great info-graphic that illustrates all the rumors and hype around the iPhone 5. Check it out:

    This story was released in South Korea on April 1st...anyone else find that ironic? Might be a coincidence, but in my mind it takes more than a single news report to sway me.

    This was on CNN this morning.

    The report also said that it would be released in South Korea and the US on the same day...historically unlikely, but it could happen. They only had to wait 3 months for the iPhone 4 after its release stateside.

    It's also been said that it could be delayed due to damage to 15 Sony factories in Japan... The Sony CEO came out and nearly admitted that his company was providing the camera.

    That list is cool but I have to disagree with them predicting the iphone as a fall launch. iPhone has always been a summer launch and Apple Doesn't deviate. I am 99% Positive the iPhone 5 drops this summer.

    Default Where do the buttons go?
    Well it's pretty obvious that that isn't the way the iPhone 5 will look given that the buttons which are shown on the edge in the first and second images would never fit on the edge as shown in the third image.

    Pointless mock up

    hmmmmmm, I think unless there is a dramatic improvement in speed, camera, or even a complete overhaul that makes the iphone 5 better than the iphone 4 I will be sticking with my iphone 4. The 4 is amazing and a huge stepup from the 3g and 3gs so this new one whenever it is released would have to be amazing
