BGR: iPhone 5 To Be Announced In August "With A Radical New Case Design"

BGR is reporting that the next generation iPhone will likely be announced in August and will feature a “radical new case design”.  They were also able to confirm that the “iPhone 5″ wouldn’t “merely be an upgraded iPhone 4″.  

These claims differ from a recent Forbes report, which states that the next generation iPhone “should be called iPhone 4S and include minor cosmetic changes”

From BGR:

While Apple has indeed been giving some developers access to a device known as the iPhone 4S — an iPhone 4 with upgraded internals — BGR has independently confirmed that the next-generation iPhone will not merely be an upgraded iPhone 4 as had been previously rumored. We have been told by a reliable source to expect a radical new case design for the upcoming iPhone, though we have not been given any additional details surrounding the design of the new iPhone case. What about a release, then? The consensus is that Apple is going to announce the next-generation iPhone at the company’s annual September event, traditionally focused on iPods, but we have heard it’s quite possible Apple will break tradition. According to our source, Apple may hold an event in the beginning or middle of August to announce the new iPhone, with availability to follow in the last week of August.

BGR has been a reliable source of information in the past, but as Macrumors points out, they have been inaccurate as of late.  I think at the least, we can expect the next generation iPhone to sport an 8MP camera, 1080P video recording and an A5 processor.  I’m hoping that it will be 4G ready and have NFC digital wallet capabilities.
