If AllThingsD’s report is true, this is the first time a new Apple device will be announced without former CEO now Chairman Steve Jobs taking center stage. It is also possible Tim will be announcing their new entry-level smartphone the iPhone 4S (iPhone 4 Plus).
Once Apple officially announces the iPhone 5 and, possibly, the iPhone 4S, we can finally lay the conflicting rumors to rest. We’ll finally get to know if the future flagship will pack a dual-core processor under the hood, an 8 megapixel camera, and a much larger touchscreen.
It’s not all good news for the Apple iPhone 5, though. According to an anonymous Samsung executive, once the iOS-powered smartphone lands in South Korea, the Korean tech giant will be seeking an injunction to ban Apple’s handset in its home turf. This will further intensify the legal battle between the two industry giants.
Despite the impending legal onslaught, the Apple iPhone 5 still remains the most highly anticipated smartphone this year. Its rumored official announcement on the 4th of October will surely create waves.
