Apple is expected to launch its iconic new iPhone 5 in India in the weeks to come. While the iPhone 5 is already selling internationally, the device is expected to hit the retail market in India around Diwali, which is next month. Currently, the international models of the iPhone 5 are being sold in India for a premium price.
The new Apple iPhone 5 is lighter, thinner and faster compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 4S. Flaunting a 4-inch Retina display, the iPhone 5 features a new design and packs a faster Apple A6 mobile processor inside. The iOS 6 update on the iPhone 5 also brings a new maps application with Apple-designed cartography. Supporting the new LTE networks, the iPhone 5 also debuts new smaller connector, called Lightning.
