Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo to Macrumors:

Apple is scheduled to send the golden master version of iOS 5 to its iPhone and iPod touch assembling partners during the timeframe of September 23rd through 30th, suggesting a launch for the new hardware around mid-October once the assemblers have had time to install the software on already-produced hardware and ship it out.

Kuo expects the iPhone prototype N94 will be the new iPhone 4S, with specs:

  • Similar height as iPhone 4 due to camera module (OP has been saying this)
  • 3.5 inch display (not sure)
  • Glass front and back
  • Foxconn scheduled to make 85% of production, Pegatron to make 15%
  • 60-40 split between black and white models

The report is contrary to rumored thin iPhone 5 case, which ObamaPacman believes it’s an iPod touch or knockoff product case.
