iPhone 5 landing September 5th, says network source

Apple will release the iPhone 5 on September 5th in the US, reports suggest, as competition heats up in what promises to be a smartphone battle royale in the last quarter of the year.

The mooted release date for the next-gen Apple handset over The Pond apparently emerged in an interview with a senior exec from carrier Swisscom on Phone Italia – an Italian blog that specialises in iPhone news.

The unnamed mover and shaker told the site that Swisscom will be selling the phone a month later on October 5th, which we’re assuming is when we’ll also be able to get our hands on it in the UK.

The period towards the end of the third quarter and the start of the fourth is set to be marked by a welter of phone releases. Not least among them are the debut Windows Mango handsets, including the first phone from new partner Nokia.

Also reputedly incoming in the crucial pre-Christmas period is the third Google Nexus branded Android phone, as well as a glasses-free, 3D-capable version of Samsung 3m-selling Galaxy S2.

What we can expect from Apple’s forthcoming effort is still firmly under wraps. However, purported features include an eight megapixel snapper, NFC support for Oyster Card-style contactless payments and a slimmer, lighter form factor.
