Telecommunications giant AT&T has apparently “confirmed” that the iPhone 5 will be released this October, according to multiple sources and rumors.
AT&T is said to be in charge of releasing the iPhone 5 in the US. One of their executives has been rumored to mention that October will be a busy month for them.
Reports have also stated that their vice president has spread the info among their employees, stating that the next gen iPhone will be debuting in the US this October. The head of AT&T also mentioned that the next few months are going to be hectic and they should prepare in advance accordingly.
Although the rumor of an October release is not new to the smartphone community, this release of news by AT&T will surely put a foothold and practically confirm the month of release. Another source has already practically called it a while ago, stating that the dual-core sporting smartphone will not be a “slight upgrade” and that October will be D-day in terms of release.
Kara Swisher has mentioned that the iPhone 5 will include a dual-core processor, Qualcomm’s dual-mode GSM/CDMA baseband and an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera. The iPhone 5 is also expected to be released alongside iOS 5.
Meanwhile, on the Internet, the Apple online community is buzzing about, stating that Apple will officially reveal the iPhone 5 in September. This makes sense as Apple has previously unveiled previous models approximately a month before hand.
Judging from this recent news, it can be safely said that September release date rumors can be quashed, rather, an unveiling in the said month and the release in October is looking more and more likely.
