Apple has been giving us humble users quite some cool new devices lately, with the new iPad 2 being launched just recently and with the 2011 MacBook Pro line. Now because of the onslaught of new Android smartphones we might be seeing the iPhone 5 release date being announced rather shortly. The latest rumors are showing that the device might be coming sooner than expected and that the Korean market might just get their hands on the device first out of the bunch.
This latest rumor regarding the Apple iPhone 5 is hinting towards a launch of the device sometime in June but considering that the iPhone 4 just recently landed in Korea this might be somewhat questionable.
The iPhone 5 will still miss WWDC according to the latest news on this topic but it seems that shortly after the event we might get the chance to see the new Apple smartphone hit the market.
On the Korean network front, KT and SK Telecom are the ones rumored to be carrying the device on their network, yet again the issue lies with the fact that the iPhone 4 just recently hit the market, so I do have my doubts on this matter.
Still, I do think that because of the pressure under which Apple has been lately, the company might be very well trying to push the iPhone 5 release date as early as possible. We must also take into account the high quality of Apple’s smartphones until now, so I’m rather confident that they won’t be sacrificing that in order to push out the device a month or two sooner – quality above all folks.
However, considering the large amount of Androids flooding the market from large manufacturer’s as Motorola, Samsung, HTC and Sony Ericsson, Apple might be very well feeling the heat on its iPhone 4 sales, so they might be pushing the iPhone 5 out as quickly as they can.
Despite all of this, mark this as a rumor for the time being folks, as there’s no definite news from any front regarding this rumored iPhone 5 release date. Stay tuned for more, as we’ll keep you updated on the story!
