Rumors of the latest generation of iPhone have been wondering around for quite a while because no one knows exactly when it would be released. It’s said that secrecy is in Apple’s DNA. It’s obvious that such a big corporation like Apple couldn’t have managed to maintain its gadgets secret until the release date if it weren’t for the demanding terms and penalties.
Lately, it’s rumoured that iPhone 5 will be announced on August 7 according to Know Your Mobile. It’s stated from a reliable source that the gadget will be launched with the help of a keynote speech. The latest concept of iPhone 5 features aluminium two-tone back panel with a 4-inch Retina display and NFC chip. Because the iPhone 4S was identical in design with its previous version iPhone 4, the latest generation of iPhone is said to come with a new and appealing design. It’s expected to come with iOS 6 and will have to face rivals on the market like Windows Phone 8 and Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
MacRumors via Macotakara states in its term that iPhone 5 has been set into production in China. The Japanese blog has also come with reliable info for the iPad 3. Pictures with the iPhone gadget also feature two-tone backing with a metal penal on the centre.
It seems that even though the iPhone has not yet been announced not to mention released, China’s largest e-commerce platform, TaoBao has already began accepting pre-orders for iPhone 5 “complete with mock-up pictures and purported technical specifications”. Sellers are asking between 1,000 Yuan ($160) and 6,999 Yuan ($1,100) for the new phone according to Reuters. Taobao offers pictures with the same concept of iPhone, namely liquid metal and aluminium case on the center.
