The release of the new iPhone or iPhone 5 would be huge, according to Kirk Yang Barclay’s Capital Analyst in Hong Kong.

What are the expected features of iPhone 5? A quad processor A6, Gorilla Glass 2.0, bigger screen, 4G LTE, new design, a better battery life and high-resolution camera.

According to many analysts, Apple Shares (AAPL) which is currently priced at $542.21 are expected to go more high. Reason behind it could be a ‘close launch’ of new iPhone or iPhone 5?
