iPhone 5 launching 5 September in the US, 5 October in Europe? - GSMArena.com news

26 July, 2011 
The iPhone 5 was a no-show at the WWDC in June, but a new report claims that it will launch on 5 September. Coming from a senior Swisscom executive, this is reportedly reliable info, but as you might have guessed, there's no official info from Apple.
During the conference call for their quarterly financial results, Apple did mention a "product transition" in the Fall. It's also in line with previous estimates we've heard about the iPhone 5 launch date.
So, the 5 September launch sounds plausible, but still take it with a pinch of salt. There's a little over a month until then and even if it's true now, plans might change. There were rumors of delays caused by overheating of the dual-core Apple A5 chip that would power the iPhone 5.
Actually, we've seen so many rumors, it's hard to keep track anymore. An 8MP camera and a larger screen (or at least thinner bezel) often came up in the iPhone 5 section of the rumor mill, so they seem likely. These mock-ups from earlier this month summarize the iPhone 5 rumors.
Anyway, the exec from the Swiss carrier went on to say that they will be offering the new iPhone a month later, 5 October, which sounds like a good tentative date for the European launch of Apple's latest phone
