Although we’ve recently heard that Apple would not launch the iPhone 5 until late October, this may not be true. And, well, we’ll probably not know the real truth until the day Apple decides to officially announce its new smartphone. Meanwhile, we have enough rumors to keep us busy.
The latest rumor comes from BGR, which claims to have “confirmed information” “received from a reliable source at Canadian carrier Telus.” According to the info, Telus is planning to launch the new iPhone 5 in Canada on October 1. Theoretically, this could happen – although October 1 is a Saturday, and Apple has released its previous iPhone models either on a Friday, or a Thursday.
Anyway, assuming this launch date is accurate, the iPhone 5 will also be out in the US on October 1, or even earlier – since it wouldn’t be the first time when Apple intros a new iPhone in Canada only after launching it in the US.
The iPhone 5 will come with iOS 5, and possibly some – if not all – of these other features: dual-core processor, more RAM, NFC, 8MP camera, and a larger display.
