iPhone 5 Launch On August 7 With Keynote; Production Begins In China?

If the reliable sources of Know Your Mobile are to be relied on, there is some awesome news for Apple Fanboys. iPhone 5, the most awaited smartphone of 2012, is going to be launched on August 7 with a keynote speech in the Cupertino-based company. It has been in the news for sometime now that iPhone 5's release date is expected in Quarter 3 (August to October). But, since there is no official word from Apple, we had no reason to believe any of these rumors.

According to the current reports, iPhone 5 will arrive with iOS 6 and may bring with it an updated UI, advanced maps, Facebook and iCloud integration, plus some tweaks to the camera. Apple is also expected feature a much larger 4-inch Retina display on the iPhone 5 with support for NFC, an updated Siri and 1GB of RAM. Apart from this, there are talks of a  re-designed casing and a micro dock. This about sums up all the things that the tech-town is abuzz with, when it comes to Apple's next big release.

Adding fuel to the rumor-fire, a japanese blog called The Macotakara has reported that factories in China have begun the production of the next iPhone. Since, it can take almost 2 months for the handset to be shipped to retailers, we can say that August 7 could be the day when we have Apple's official announcement. With the d-day thought of to be just 3 weeks away, we are sure Apple fans are already getting goosebumps.
