Two new iPhones coming next month?

What better way to start a week than with a story about the new iPhone? We'll tell you what's better - a story about two new iPhones.

Yes, you read that right, two models could be announced soon and launched in October. That's according to 9to5Mac anyway. The first is described as a 'low-end model', which isn't a million miles away from the current iPhone 4 in looks (glass front and back). It's said to be rolling off the production line in big numbers right now, with 10million+ ready to hit the shelves, all of which will be 'priced aggressively', including on pre-pay deals, from day of launch.

Details of the actual model aren't forthcoming, but it could be the 8GB iPhone 4S that was talked about some weeks back. if that sounds up your street, you are unlikely to be disappointed on launch day. Which isn't going to be the case with the actual iPhone 5.

That same site also claims that a 'tear-drop shaped iPhone 5' with larger screen and thinner, rounder body is also due. However, there are both design and production delays, at least on one assembly line, which could mean it is delayed slightly at the very least and may see shortages of stock all the way into 2012. Shame, as it is said to be a 'sight to behold', with a camera that rivals point and shoot cameras, as well as having a boosted processor and the all-new iOS 5.

So good news and bad news. As for the shelf date, well it is still fluctuating between the 7th and 15th October, so expect anything around there. Also, expect a long queue too if those rumours of big stock shortages for the new model are true. More on this when we hear it.
