The special event for the next generation iPhone will be hold on Sept. 12, 2012 at 10 a.m Pacific Time in the Yerba Buena center for the Arts in San Francisco, California. Of course, Aniki’s Journal will fully cover the event.
Julu’s rumors about Apple’s special event on Sept. 12 is finally true. We can expects that the official sale of the new iPhone will start, 10 days after the special event next week, on Sept. 21, 2012.
Regarding the leaked parts and photographs we’ve seen during the last weeks, we expect that the next generation of iPhone will have a totally new design which is different from what we’ve seen until now. The new iPhone 5 will have a taller screen of 4 inches, almost lightly taller that the actual iPhone 4S and iPhone 4. We’ve also seen that it will have a two-tones design.
About the materials, iPhone 5 is likely to keep the same old home button that we have seen since the first iPhone in 2007. The FaceTime face-forwarding camera will be centered above the earset (just on top of the screen). About the Jack sound plug, it will be moved down the handset just near the new 9-pin dock connector which is smaller that the actual one.
Contrary to previous rumors, the iPhone 5 will not featured an NFC which can allow e-wallet feature for instance. The iPhone 5 will come with iOS 6, the next major release of the Apple’s mobile operating system that will include a new native application called "Passbook" to serve as digital card holder to gather in one location tickets, electronic ticket, coupon, boarding passes or your loyalty cards. Maybe this is a way for Apple to make us wait until the final integration of NFC ships in its devices.
According to our sources, the pre-orders for the new iPhone should begin on the day of its official announcement by Apple next week. As usual, the list of countries which will first receive the iPhone 5 is like for the iPhone 4S, including the USA, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and Australia. Other countries will be served soon afterwards.
