iPhone 5 Rumors: Apple is Yet to Finalize Design for Device

Apple has not yet decided on the final design for the iPhone 5, according to a recent report from iMore.com.

The site is reporting that the company has not decided on what the exact screen size will be, but that it will not bigger than 4-inches. It is also saying that the device will feature a smaller dock connector that is currently in development along with the traditional home button.

Contrary to some of the recent rumors, it will not feature a metal backing and the new iPhone will most likely be an LTE device.

iLounge recently reported that the new iPhone would have a longer display with a partially metal back.

"Since Apple prototypes many designs for upcoming products, it is very likely that iLounge's iPhone 5 description is an actual prototype," said 9to5Mac. "However, iMore is saying that the new iPhone design is yet to be finalized, so don't be disappointed if the final product looks different than iLounge's mockups."

iMore is also saying that Apple will launch the next iPhone in October, one year after the iPhone 4S was released.

DigiTimes also weighed in on the iPhone 5 argument.

The site reported that Apple is planning to launch the device in September thanks to some information leaked from one of the company's top manufacturers, Pegatron.

A recent article from the publication states that Pegatron, an alternate manufacture to Foxconn that Apple frequently uses for producing the company's devices, has received a request from Apple to have a certain amount of new iPhones ready for a September release.

Most of the rumors point to Apple launching the iPhone in the fall, so a summer release seems quite unlikely at this point.

Either way, LTE is a must for Apple if it wants to compete with Samsung's new Galaxy S3, so that should be the only feature that is sure to make its way to the smartphone.
