IPhone 5 Release Date 2012: Why the New Smartphone’s Hardware Will Be Different From The IPad [SPECS]
Some Apple gadget users may draw comparisons between the iPhone the iPad, referring to the smartphone as a mini version of the tablet. However, there is a key hardware feature that is rumored to set the upcoming iPhone apart from its larger counterpart. Reuters

The rumors about the next generation iPhone, dubbed iPhone 5, are emerging endlessly. The latest one indicates that the handset will launch at Apple's Worldwide Developer's Conference (WWDC), which is scheduled for June this year.

According to Taiwanese site DigiTimes, which cited Chinese-language Commercial Times, the forthcoming smartphone will boast of glass to glass touch panel technology, which will benefit current touch panel suppliers TPK Holding and Wintek.

This isn't the first rumor that claims iPhone 5 might launch in the summer. 9to5Mac had also reported the same about the release date, citing a reliable source at the Chinese factory Foxconn.

Except the current iPhone 4S, which was launched last Oct., previous iPhones were unveiled at Apple's annual WWDC conference.

Meanwhile, even though the official date of the WWDC 2012 has not been announced, MacRumors has revealed that the conference might held on June 10th-15th.

The Moscone's event calendar also has those corresponding dates booked, suggesting there is a Corporate Meeting at that time.

iPhone 5 is expected to sport a bigger screen, improved cameras, NFC and more.
