Eldar Murtazin who has sources that seem to be of supernatural origin as he tends to hit the rumors right on the head most of the time, tweeted not too long ago that “Apple decided to rework iphone5 [sic] design.” Is that so? If that is the case, then what will happen to all of those leaked iPhone 5 cases? I guess that is not our headache to deal with, but if what Eldar received from the grapevine is true, then it would be interesting to see just what kind of redesign we could be looking at.

As for the Samsung Galaxy S3, he mentioned that the Galaxy S3 launch has been postponed to February next year – and considering how the Galaxy S2 which is pretty much Samsung’s superphone at the moment is doing so well, having less than a year on the market only to be superceded by another model is something rather surprising. I do wonder whether the Galaxy S3 will be a quantum leap in terms of specifications and hardware over the Galaxy S2 to warrant a new release.
