The iPhone 5 hasn't even been confirmed, but it's highly likely that Apple will starting selling it in September or October. According to the latest reports, the device will come with a bigger display, the ability to connect to 4G networks and perhaps even more storage than its predecessor, the iPhone 4. Details are obviously slim for now, but here's hoping Apple opens up about the iPhone 5 sooner rather than later.
All across the world people are champing at the bit to get their hands on the latest and greatest smartphones.
