iPhone 5 to debut at WWDC in June, says analyst

February 3rd, 2012

iPhone 4S 8GBAn analyst is claiming that Apple will unveil its next-gen smartphone, the mooted iPhone 5, at WWDC in June.

This news comes via Chinese newspaper Commercial Times, who cites brokerage Daiwa Securities as saying that the iPhone 5 will make its debut at the World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June. This, if true, would see the Cupertino-firm returning to its usual June iPhone launch events, after last year’s refresh landed in October.

The Commercial Times report also reiterates rumours that the iPhone 5 will tout a larger screen than Apple’s usual 3.5-incher, although no specifics have yet been mentioned. Previous whispers have suggested that it’ll tout a larger 4-inch screen with a bumped-up resolution.

So, what else can we expect from the next-gen iPhone, that may be unveiled in just 5 months time? It’s though the handset will tout Apple’s yet-unananounced quad-core A6 chipset, paired with the next iteration of iOS software and integrated NFC tech. Rumours have also hinted that the iPhone 5 will boast 4G LTE connectivity over in the States, as will the soon-t0-be-launched iPad 3.
