Since Apple’s announcement of iOS 6 at the WWDC 2012, people have been speculating the launch date of the company’s next generation of smartphone, dubbed the iPhone 5. According to previous rumors, iPhone 5 is expecting its grand opening in October shortly after the release of the new mobile operating system, iOS 6, but new information hinted that the new iDevice from Apple may hit the market earlier.

A Chinese website Sina.com stated that Apple requested its suppliers to expedite the manufacturing of iPhone 5 components. If the suppliers in Taiwan meet Apple’s new demand by July, the iPhone 5 may be ready to ship in August or early September, reported by NextiPhoneNews.com.
The new device from Apple has been rumored to become larger, equipped with a 4.0-inch elongated screen with 16:9 ratio. It is also said to replace its charting dock from a 30-pin dock to a 19-pin dock. The new patent from Apple suggests that camera lens could be removable and replaceable.
Sporting the iOS 6 will also bring numerous new cool features to the device as well. Most notably, the new Maps developed by Apple will replace Google Map as its default mapping service on iDevices. The Maps will have 3D viewing ability as well as turn-by-turn navigation. It is also to have more integration with other third-party services, such as Yelp and Facebook.
Another recent rumor suggested that the near-field-communication (NFC) technology will be introduced for the first time in iPhone series, which could essentially make the device into an “iWallet”.
If the rumor about early release is true, what could have made Apple to hurry in introducing its new product? Is Apple trying to start its competition early as Samsung and Google are coming out with new fancy products?
Samsung has already released its Galaxy S3 in the U.S. market, and Google has announced its Google Nexus.
