iPhone 5 is coming to UK on November 21?

The rumor-mill is on a roll with predictions concerning a possible street date of next-gen iPhone, outed as iPhone 4S. British gadget magazine T3 relayed claims by a representative of retailer Phones4U who claimed the device would hit the UK market on November 21. Should Apple simultaneously launch the device in the US and major territories like the UK, then Americans would also get their hands on iPhone 5 on November 21.

A November release would add velocity to the spate of rumours suggesting that the iPhone 5 will be unveiled in September 2011, doing away with Apple’s previously rigid annual summer release schedule.

Staff at Phones4U in St Albans told the publication that the handset “would be available on similar tariffs to those offered to early iPhone 4 adopters”. We’re republishing this rumor for the sake of completeness and you should take it with a few pinches of salt. Note that November 21 is a Monday, which is an unlikely day for Apple’s high-profile launches which have thus far been Friday affairs mostly. Also, T3′s track record of rumor reporting is pretty inaccurate, to say the least.

Other sources seem to agree that the fifth-generation iPhone will be an evolutionary refresh similar to the iPhone 3GS upgrade from the 3G model. It is believed Apple would market the device under the 4S moniker to indicate a specs bump. Analysts are expecting the dual-core A5 chip from iPad 2, edge-to-edge display, better cameras (possibly a 1080p-capable eight-megapixel camera on the back) and enhanced radio connectivity supporting HSPA+ cellular networks, making the phone compatible with T-Mobile and Sprint networks in the US and China Mobile in Asia. A prototype photos leaked last week, suggesting T-Mobile may have been field-testing the device ahead of a September launch.
