Now that we’re done with our round of Verizon iPhone rumors, it’s time for the interweb to come up with a whole new set of speculations, leaks, and unverified information about a new device: the iPhone 5.

That’s Engadget who started this new rumor mill by citing multiple sources (anonymous, of course) who claim to have details about the iPhone 5, set to launch sometimes this summer…

But all of these moves are leading up to the iPhone 5 — a completely redesigned handset — which our sources say is on track for a summer launch. Right now, the device is being tested discreetly by senior staff at Apple (strictly on campus only). We don’t have much info on the phone at this point, but our understanding is that the new device will be a total rethink from a design standpoint and will be running atop Apple’s new A5 CPU (a Cortex A9-based, multi-core chip). This device, like the iPad 2, will feature a Qualcomm chipset that does triple duty as the CDMA / GSM / UMTS baseband processor — from what we hear there’s no LTE in the mix at this point.

Putting CDMA/GSM chipset would completely make sense now that Apple is offering its device to carriers that support CDMA (Verizon).

More details as they come!

    still prefer GSM separated from CDMA: reason: save battery
    Please use OLED screen since battery life on 3GS and iPhone 4 sux. OLED is more energy efficient than LED technology.
    I want a 4″ screen so the phone is bigger and hopefully more room for bigger battery pack

  • Frosty

    So does that mean that verizon customers will get two iPhones this year?

  • iKing

    It needs to have LTE compatibiliy.

    • Bradibiza

      Yes and they also get a MacBook pro For free as well.

      • Burge

        I live in the UK I sign up for that phone just give me a mac book pro ….lol..

    • Mark

      2012.. Apple has a phone in nearly every Country, however not all of those Countries have carriers that are far along as Verizon, heck some of the Countries like the UK aren’t even as far along as AT&T is to LTE. The UK Government is not ready to work on LTE last I heard & that is a huge market for Apple. Now in everyone of these Countries Apple sells the device unlocked & customers can choose carriers they wish to choose. Apple will wait until every carrier or the majority carriers have adopted the LTE technology or confirm what their plans are.

      • iKing

        I really dont care im locked in with att until 2012 but If it is going LTE compatible i would pay the additional $600 for the new phone

  • Morgan Ryzen

    I personally like the Time Travel app that will be included with the iPhone 5. With it I can move ahead and intercept the message I just sent, making it never have happened – heck I guess I can move far enough ahead to see the reslut, then go back and make make the cause actually reslut in what I planned.Talk about a game changer.

    • Relatora

      If Morgan Ryzen of the future sees this msg, please tell Morgan Ryzen of the past to delete that last response

      lol … just yanking your chain dude ;p

  • Morgan Ryzen

    I can tell it’s working already.

  • Ernesto Castellanos

    Heck, if I had a time travelling app… I would invent the iPhone in the past. Lets say… 2006!

  • ytgh

    Time travel is perfect for Angry Birds!

    This makes me just stick to my Droid and wait for the Summer. I’m stuck on choosing the iPhone 4 since I could get it brand new for 2 year price, or just wait for the summer. I’ll be pissed if the phone is a blow out of my mind thing and I’m stuck with the iPhone 4.

  • Goofygreek

    I heard that the next version of the iPhone will have theft deterrent. Can’t wait to see how that works. Lol.

  • i love unlock website

  • This thing make people crazy

  • Dracossaint

    Don’t forget everyone ,apple
    Is infamous for taking ,ONLY standardized stuff into their hardware ,do I think it’ll be a multicore phone ,or apple pacific designed stuff (the retina display )

  • SebastianPaige

    fyi, the mobile version of your articles now comes out in times new roman for some reason. looks ugly 😉

  • SebastianPaige

    not always, but most of the time… at least for me on my jailbroken iphone 4 (4.0)

  • k

    If I keep waiting for the next iphone I’ll never own one. First I wait for the 4, then decide to wait for verizon.. now think I should wait for the 5 AHHHHHH

  • omegaharbmaster

    do what i do, buy the phone believing they cant do much to the next one, than when the next one comes out get really pissed off and jealous and send apple a letter about how much you hate the,m and wish they would burn and make it clear that android is better than iphone. All the while purchasing the new iphone followed by you sending them an apology letter two weeks later while also ignoring your unpaid bills so you can have such a wonderful phone. makes sense since apple is in the equation

  • K

    perfect.Thank you.Could not have said it better.
