Business 24-7 has dropped a hint that Apple may be preparing to unveil their next-gen iPhone to the public in June. In addition to the news, they have also mentioned the iPhone will become available in the United Arab Emirates in February, on the 15th. The website stated "the next version of the device, which is due out in June, will be launched in the UAE at the same time."
This news is not unexpected; both versions of Apple's iPhone have been launched around June and July, and with the growing popularity of the App Store it is expected that Apple needs to upgrade the iPhone's hardware.
There are rumors that the next iPhone will go multi-core and allow video conferencing, but aside from that, nothing is known.
As for the UAE, the only chance that region of the world has had to get an iPhone is via paying a 20% premium. Now that they are officially scheduled, it should show a rise in popularity, and Mark Davis (Programme Director for iPhone at etisalat) stated "On an average a phone is replaced here every nine months, therefore there is tremendous potential for the iPhone. The iPhone will pick up aggressively in this part of the world."
