Apple has sent out invitations to an event a week from today. While these don't explicitly state that the company is going to be unveiling a new smartphone, they drop a very unsubtle hint.
The event will be on Sept. 12, and the graphic in the invite is a large "12" casting a shadow over a "5" (see image at right). While this isn't confirmation that the company is taking the wraps off the iPhone 5 next week, it's pretty close - especially as rumors, leaks, and speculation have pointed to Apple doing exactly that for months.
What the Rumors Say
According to a plethora of unconfirmed reports, Apple's next smartphone will be its first with a 4.0-inch display. This touchscreen will supposedly use in-cell technology, and have a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels. The large screen will apparently make the device slightly bigger.
The unveiling is scheduled for Sept. 12, and the launch is expected a few days later, on Sept. 21. The iPhone 5 will likely be offered by AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile.
