A screen digitizer set that is reportedly for the upcoming iPhone 5 is selling for $199 on various retail sites.
The part showed up on the internet this past week and is advertized as the "iPhone 5" LCD Screen complete with digitizer assembly. It is slightly taller than 1,136 x 640 pixel display rumored for the device so it could be a fake.
The part is currently available for purchase on ChinaGadgetLand.com and sells for $199. However, it is currently out of stock.
The specifications for the LCD Screen with Digitizer Assembly for the iPhone 5 includes LCD Screen, Touch Screen, Digitizer, and Front Cover. The screen is 4-inches and has a resolution of 1136 x 640. The set functions as replacement parts for the device that is expected to be released sometime in the fall.
The iPhone 5 will come with LTE connectivity, according to new reports.
Carriers in Korea are currently voicing concerns to Apple over compatibility issues with their networks, the Korea Times is reporting. The LTE frequencies used in the nation are slightly different from those used in the U.S.
Along with this report, the fact that the new iPad runs on LTE networks also points to the new smartphone having the same ability. The iPhone is also rumored to include a more powerful battery that can accommodate LTE connectivity without draining too much power.
The iPhone 5 will be released internationally on Oct. 5, just a few weeks after it is launched in the U.S.
iMore's Rene Ritchie, someone with a track record of being correct with Apple predictions, stated that Apple will begin offering pre-orders for the next-generation iPhone on Sept. 12, the same day the device is expected to be announced.
She also added that it will be released by Apple on Sept. 21 alongside a new 7.85-inch iPad Mini. This new tablet will be launched by the company to compete directly with Google's Nexus 7 and the successor to the Amazon Kindle Fire.
