Boy Genius is reporting that according to some sources the new iPhone 5 slated to be announced in August and will see a release a few weeks later.
While previous rumors have stated that the new iPhone release wouldn't be a huge leap compared to the current iPhone 4, Boy Genius Report's story claims via unnamed sources that the next iPhone release will in fact have an all new case design. The story didn't go into details about what the new iPhone's case would be like other than it would be a "radical" redesign compared to the previous cases for the device.
"We have heard it's quite possible Apple will break tradition. According to our source, Apple may hold an event in the beginning or middle of August to announce the new iPhone, with availability to follow in the last week of August. We're not sure if that means the iPod event will be moved up slightly, or if this will be an iPhone-specific event. Thisismynext reported earlier that the upcoming iPhone 5 would feature a new teardrop-shaped case design," BGR said.
