The iPhone 5 Anticipated Launch in 2012

The iPhone 5 release date will be this Summer, according to a previously-reliably source at Apple'scontract manufacturer, Foxconn.

9to5 Mac reports that a Foxconn worker told them that the next-generation iPhone, tentatively called the iPhone 5, is gearing up for production. According to the report, there are several different samples, each of which varies slightly from the others, so it’s impossible to determine which will be final.

However, all the samples sport 4-inch or larger screens, which would finally put the iPhone into the same screen leagues as many of its high-end Android competitors, like the Droid RAZR. That of course means none of the samples have the same compact form factor as the iPhone 4 or 4S. The screen on one of the units is said to be made by LG; there was no screen info for the other samples.

 The final design seems nearly finalized, and production is already 'gearing up.' InIT Blogwatch, bloggers debate veracity of iPhone 5 has at various times been rumored to include LTE connectivity, larger display, a quad-core processor, new design and much, much more.
