More "evidence" for dual iPhone launch in September?

Two iPhones are widely expected to debut in September, instead of the usual one.

The next generation iPhones to hit the market is expected to launch sometime in September, and early! That's if claims made by German website "iFun" turn out to be true.

According to their "very credible and serious source"

'The next-generation iPhone will be according to our information on 6 September come on the market. In addition to that day, “two new types of devices” to be available – and thus are not two different color variations or memory meant. This information can reach us from a very credible and serious source.'

If you can get past the hilarious translation courtesy of Google, then we can assume that the website is talking about two iPhones, the 5S and the plastic variant that's intended for the lower end market, which is expected to come in a range of colors.

The image above, added to the KnowYourMobile article shows a few spec differences between the current iPhone 5 and 5S, noticeable differences is the screen for the 5S at 4.2" with a different screen resolution and PPI, although the dimensions remain the same for both devices.

The next generation iPhone 5S, allegedly also comes with a bigger battery, 2GB of RAM, dual LED flash and iOS7, while the plastic variant is widely expected to be based on the current iPhone 5, in terms of technology.

Of course you'll need to take this rumor with a fistful of salt, because Jim Dalrymple of The Loop has already "Nope'd" the 6 September launch date, making iFuns "credible" source looking much less credible.

One way or the other, we'll all find out sometime in September.

They'd better not make it bigger - the iPhone is big enough. The huge Lumia and Galaxy just look stupid IMHO

Yeah I agree I hate big phones. Nokia 8310 ftw!

A really bad mock-up. Both devices are identical in size, yet the screen size is 4.2"? Yeah. Happy Photochoppin'

Umm... I guess you don't understand what a bezel is...

4.2"-4.3" is the ideal screen size IMO. That 4" iPhone 5 looked really awkward. Hopefully the 5S has a few more standout features.

You mean the iPhone 5 looks really awkward, it's not even a year old yet and still around, lol.

I just wish it had more width, you know what the saying is "bigger the better".

It is rumored that the plastic iPhone will be called iPhone 5 C, which stands for color.

I thought that c stood for cheap.
