iPhone 5 Accessory Cases

Rumors and speculation surrounding the release date for iPhone 5 have reached an all time high. Apple’s fifth gen iPhone is widely expected to be announced in early October along with iOS 5 and could go on sale as early as mid October.

According to a new report published by The New York Times’ Nick Bilton, we could be “just weeks away” from the official media event:

We’re just weeks away from the announcement of the new Apple iPhone 5, according to an Apple employee who asked not to be named because he was not allowed to speak publicly for the company.

We recently reported on new accessories for iPhone 5 being posted on Case-Mate’s official website and according to Bilton’s source “the images seemed potentially authentic.”

Apple hasn’t unvieled any plans to announce new hardware as yet however, we could just be days away from the official invitation letter to media for the iPhone 5 launch event.

The next-gen iPhone is expected to feature 8 megapixel camera, dual-core A5 chip, boast higher RAM and have a radically thinner form factor.

It’s interesting to note that a few analysts believe that the fifth gen iPhone will introduce only minor changes on the outside and the Cupertino based company could be looking at offering an “iPhone 4S” and then introduce a major re-design in the form of iPhone 5 next year.
