Hold on tight as we are again approaching iPhone 5 rumor season.

The latest report of an impending iPhone 5 comes from 9to5Mac, which reports that a Foxconn employee said the iPhone 5 is ready for production en route to a summer launch.

As noted by 9to5Mac, the upcoming iPhone 5 would be equipped with the following:

  • 4+ inch display (made by LG on at least one of them).

  • No teardrop-shaped devices, as rumored in the lead up to the iPhone 4S. Samples so far have been symmetrical in thickness (also longer/wider).

  • Neither of the sample devices have the iPhone 4/4S form factor.

  • Neither of the devices are the final versions.

A summer release would almost certainly coincide with Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference held in San Francisco. That was the site of the unveiling of the iPhone 4 in 2010. The iPhone 4S, an incremental yet outstanding improvement over previous models, was released last fall. Sales for that device have been more than OK according to Apple’s earnings report yesterday.

The iPhone 5 is not the only game-changing device Apple is rumored to be working on for a 2012 release. Reports of an iPad 3 and full-fledged Apple TV are also making the virtual rounds.

Stay tuned.
