Speculation is rife that the newest iPhone offspring will be hitting stores in the US as early as June, meaning it will hit here sometme later this year.
This follows confirmation by Phil Schiller, Apple’s VP of Marketing, that “the white iPhone will be available this spring (and it is a beauty!).”
However, note the clever Mr Schiller failed to mention a specific model, which is making many industry speculators believe his comments were a thinly veiled reference impending 5 release, which could in fact be the model sporting the paler colour this spring.
And its not just a new colour the iPhone 5 will be sporting. It is also hotly tipped that Apple are bringing metal back.
A metal backed cover, which according to Maclife reports looks “looks like a descendent of the Terminator,” means the tech giant will be kissing goodbye to its glass encased cover.
Judging from images leaked online, it looks very similar to its predecessor in terms of size, but with a curved back.
It is also rumoured to have a larger four inch display screen, but keeping the 960×640 resolution, indicating the company is trying to improve the antenna performance of the smartphone after problems with the iPhone 4.
