BGR's source, characterized as being "solid", also says that a newly re-designed Apple iPhone 5 could be out or announced at the end of this summer. While this sounds like something to look forward to, the absence of leaked photographs showing pictures of new cases would indicate the lack of a redesigned iPhone body. Regardless of whether this unit is called the Apple iPhone 4S or iPhone 5, this model would cover the high-end for the tech giant. At the same time, the current Apple iPhone 4 would remain available to complete the Low, Middle and High-end coverage that the manufacturer has been seeking.
The crew at Cupertino has been trying to emulate Android in the sense that there is a model available at a price point to suit almost everyone. Throw in a recent report of a possible Apple iPhone launch at Sprint and T-Mobile, and it would seem that the Apple-Android battle will be heating up before the year is out.
