IMore was first to report that Apple is likely to unveil the iPhone 5 and a mini iPad on September 12 and a general release on September 21. That story has been confirmed by many sources such as Reuters and All Things D.
The backplate’s length seems to support earlier rumors that a new iPhone will come with a 3.95-inch screen at a wider resolution of 1136 x 640. It will support LTE.
Apple should sell a ton of them, especially since it is said to support China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA standard, opening up the phone to the world’s largest carrier.

Android phones feature quad-core processors, LTE and larger screens. Most Android phones also feature removable microSD storage, standardized microUSB for charging, removable batteries, and more than one “app store”. Google’s offline maps, available on Android 4, are also convenient, as are voice search features.
