Apple will finally lift the lid on the year’s most-anticipated smartphone in two weeks, sources within the Cupertino-based tech giant have disclosed.
According to insiders cited by All Things D, Apple is hosting a press event on October 4th to unveil the iPhone 5 – presumably at its time-honoured venue of choice, San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Centre.
Show & tell duties will be assumed by Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook, as Steve Jobs’s battles with his health see him take a back seat for a handset launch for the first time.
The mooted due date broadly tallies with heat from Apple’s supply chain. However, most indicators suggested the phone would make its debut in mid-October at the earliest.
Rumours also suggest that this time around the phone will come equipped with an eight megapixel camera and the same A5 dual core processor that features in the iPad 2 to bring it in line with brawnier, top-end Android smarties.
We can also look reportedly forward to a larger, four-inch screen – up from the 3.5-inch display that featured in iPhone 4 – and 4G connectivity in select territories.
