Apple to Release Bigger, Badder iPhone This August?

Minutes after chasing down another next generation iPhone rumor, BGR hit us with this iPhone 5 bomb.

BGR claims to have confirmed that the new iPhone will not be an upgraded iPhone 4 as originally rumored, but that the next iPhone will feature a major case redesign. The details are slim, but a source revealed that Apple will break tradition by announcing the new device in August, followed by a late August launch.

iPhone 5 teardrop

BGR's tip seems to support a previous report that the iPhone 5 will feature a teardrop case design, and use the same dual-core A5 processor found in the iPad 2.

Last month, rumors said that the next generation iPhone would be the so-called iPhone 4S featuring only a few cosmetic changes, and this morning rumors had the iPhone 5 being released on September 7. How many grains of salt do you have?

The thinner design just means a smaller and smaller battery.

They could have made the battery TWICE as big, if they kept the case the same size as the (already ultra thin) iPhone 4.
