iPhone 5

We’ve got another video circulating the web that features what might be a chassis of the next iPhone 5. This video was posted from YouTube on Macotakara, a Japanese technology website.

The prototype has the same four-inch display and a longer design, much like most previous rumors have speculated. It also features a plate in the back that extends only to part of the device, not the entire backside.  The device in the video appears to be the same chassis shown last month in another video. The previous design has almost the same features, including a unibody case, headphone jack on the bottom, and a smaller dock connector port. The device featured in the video features nearly everything the iPhone 5 is rumored to have.

Although it’s rumored that Apple won’t release their next phone until September or October, there is really no confirmation that Apple will release a sixth generation iPhone. That said, you can check out the video below to see it for yourself.

iPhone rumors are nothing new, but they seem to be the one thing that keeps Apple blogs and fansites buzzing. I am pretty sure that we will see the iPhone 5 in the near future(probably sometime in the fall) but I’m not sure about the rumors.  It’s obvious that something is brewing, but when it will happen, and what it will feature has yet to be publicly known. Apple seems to keep it under wraps, and that’s a good thing, as it protects their brand and products. Nobody knows what will happen in the future, but we’re hoping that Apple surprises us with something unexpected. Given the history of Apple’s innovative successes, it would be surprising if they didn’t follow that path.

The iPhone 5 is rumored to be introduced to the public on September, 12 along with the iPad Mini, new iPod Touch, and iPod Nano. It’s also predicted the actual smartphone will be released on September 21st. Last year, the iPhone 4s was introduced and released in October.

Apple is a big company with a lot of ambition, and it looks like it could be one their biggest years ever. The iPad 3 was released earlier this year, and OS X Mountain Lion was released just last week, both products boasted impressive numbers of sales. Hopefully, Apple should increase in revenues once the iPhone 5 arrives. The only question left to ask is this: will Apple be able to reclaim their crown as top smartphone maker and dethrone their current competitor Samsung?
