Following in the footsteps of its tablet sibling, latest reports have suggested the upcoming Apple iPhone 5 release will see the eagerly awaited handset sport the same A5X dual-core processor as the current new iPad 3.
Running against the grain of recent iPhone 5 rumours that have suggested Apple’s sixth-generation smartphone will head to market with a new quad-core processor in tow, latest reports have claimed that yet another leaked iPhone 5 component has all but confirmed the long awaited device will play host to the same processing power found within the market dominating tablet.
Snapped ahead of launch, a claimed iPhone 5 logic board has appeared online suggesting the iPhone 4S replacement will hit retailers with processing power that, on paper at least, falls behind the current quad-core leading Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X offering.
A new iPhone 5 release date rumor seems to strongly confirm a September 21st release for the new smartphone. It appears there is a Verizon vacation blackout which falls in line with the previously speculated release dates for Apple’s upcoming device.
According to TechCrunch, a “trusted Verizon employee” confirmed the service provider is having a vacation blackout from September 21st through 30th. This seems to lend more credibility to those previous rumors suggesting a September 12th announcement by Apple, along with pre-orders of the new, and followed by the September 21 release date.
In a new iPhone 5 release date rumor, it appears that once the newest smartphone from Apple will support the first 4G network in the United Kingdom. The news arrives as the world is awaiting the announcement of the new iPhone from Apple in mid-September of 2012.
According to CultofMac.com, the United Kingdom’s first-ever 4G network is expected to roll out starting on September 11th. That’s just a day before Apple is rumored to be announcing their new iPhone 5 at a press event, where they’ll also unveil their new iPhone and iPad operating system.
