Apple’s iPhone 5 might see a launch in September 2011

iPhone 5 Launch India 2011

Apple has released a new iPhone every year since unleashing the original model on June 29, 2007. The latest, the iPhone 4, is now more than a year old. And it is not new info that Apple will be launching the iPhone 5 sometime later this year. But what is new info is that the iPhone 5 will be released in the second week of September with 4 million units set to hit the streets at launch.

According to China Times (translated via MacRumors ), suppliers are currently preparing 400,000 trial run iPhone 5 units, with an initial shipment slated at 4 million units. As the iPhone 5 features guessing game picks up steam, Apple has not formally announced anything.

The Chinese publication also reports that the iPad 3, a widely rumored upgrade to the iPad 2 with a high-resolution display, is actually delayed until Thanksgiving due to component shortages. A recent report from Taiwan’s Economic Daily claims the next-gen iPad display resolution will be five to six times higher than that of the iPad 2. However, some are skeptic that Apple will make the iPad 2, still a best seller, obsolete after nine months of availability.

Speculation about possible upgrades to iPhone 5 way has escalated. It is reported it will boast an 8MP dual-LED flash camera with 1080p video playback and panoramic photo capture, A5 processor, edge-to-edge display, 3.7-inch curved glass screen, tear-drop design, thinner casing and a SIM-less design.

It is also expected that iPhone 5 will be running on iOS 5, the newest of the OS versions. The new iOS 5 is expected to come with 200 new features that will include Improved Notifications System, News Stand and iMessage.
