There were reports floating around that the date for the iPhone 5's launch was brought forward from October to August (most likely from increasing competition). Because it is just a rumor, there are no details on specs, design, pricing, or anything else really. According to previous rumors, Apple will break their usual stance of keeping the screen at just 3.5-inch, and increase it to 4-inch.

They need to do this to break the mould, and keep up with the competition. Apple's new iPhone should also sport NFC capabilities, as well as a faster processor. It should also adapt a new look and style, changing from the iPhone 4 and 4S. The new iPhone should also be the debut device for Apple's iOS 6 mobile operating system, which should bring some nice changes to iOS, as there again, is already competition from Google in the form of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and the soon-to-be released Windows Phone 8 from Microsoft.
