Report: Next iPhone to ship in September

Apple is planning to ship its next version of the iPhone in September, according to a new report. Citing three people with direct knowledge of the company’s supply chain, Reuters reports that production on the new iPhone will start in July or August and that it will look largely similar to the iPhone 4. The report also claims it will have a faster processor, most likely the dual-core A5 that debuted in the iPad 2, and pegs Largan Precision as a camera module maker—likely for the front-facing camera, as Sony is widely believed to be supplying an eight-megapixel sensor for the rear—Wintek as a touchscreen panel supplier, and Foxconn as the external case maker for the new model.

By all current rumors, it appears that iPhone 5 will be a much more iterative product. I wonder if it will include a storage bump. I was disappointed that the iPhone 4 did not come in a 64 GB configuration.

September? That’s still quite a wait. I’ve been holding out for the iPhone 5 ever since… well, I was holding out for the iPhone 4 and the launch reports of that didn’t exactly have me leaping to buy one. I seem to be in a holding pattern of waiting for the next iteration before FINALLY buying an iPhone.

I’ll be in a holding pattern too, my Verizon contract is up in July and I can’t wait to dump my POS Droid for an iPhone.
