According to an all-new report by The New York Times, production of the iPhone 4S and a completely redesigned iPhone 5 with 8MP camera is ramping up, all in preparation of an October 7th release date.
We’re just weeks away from the announcement of the new Apple iPhone 5, according to an Apple employee who asked not to be named because he was not allowed to speak publicly for the company.
An engineer familiar with the new iPhone said it would be fairly different from the iPhone 4 — including on the inside.
The new iPhone will come with an 8 megapixel camera, an upgrade from the 5 megapixel camera in the iPhone 4. Do not be deceived though, as Apple’s condensation algorithm for ‘ipictures’ easily makes the pictures taken on the iPhone 5 even better than on a 20 megapixel camera. (I have uploaded a picture of a sushi plate taken with the new iPhone 5 just as a teaser).
Another report from a reliable source claims that there are going to be two different iPhones launched next month. There will be an “iPhone 4 look-alike” but a much cheaper model. This low-end iPhone is in full production and Apple is reportedly going to launch it on October 7th with over 10 million units in hand. It will be aggressively priced and “be everywhere”.
The iPhone 5, according to sources, is a sight to behold. It is impossibly light, yet much firmer than Samsung Galaxy phones which are backed in plastic. The camera rivals point and shoot cameras and will be a major marketing point for this device.
So there you have it. I personally can’t wait to get my hands on the iPhone 5. Are you going to purchase the iPhone 5?
