Many have been speculating that a new version of the iPhone would offer a speech-to-text functionality due to the title of the event that alludes to “talk.”

Just what type of new gadgets and features a new iPhone would have is divided by expert opinion.

Ben Wood, director of research at analysts CCS Insight told the BBC that, “We’re expecting a flagship, high tier product to cement the iPhone’s position as the must-have device.”

Others speculate that another more budget friendly version of the iPhone 4 will also be launched at the event.

As of now, it seems pretty certain that a new version will indeed be unveiled today as last week a rumor had spread all over IT websites that a head of China Unicom alluded to the fact that a new phone would offer faster internet using HSPA+ in a meeting.

Other people are speculating what different types of features a new iPhone would have suggesting that it would likely come with a larger screen size and would be a “world phone,” meaning that if would feature a SIM card slot so that users could insert their SIM cards from different countries.

If Apple chooses to unveil its new phone today, die-hard Apple fans wills still have to wait a few weeks before the device actually hits the market. Some reports suggest that the device will finally come out on the market around the 14th or 15th of October.
