Apple’s iPhone 5 will be getting a UK release date at O2 on October 21, Know Your Mobile can reveal

We’ve just learned that Apple’s iPhone 5 will be getting a UK release date on October 21.

That’s right, we’ve just been contacted by one of our tipsters who spoke with customer services at O2. The customer service representative told our tipster that the iPhone 5 would be getting release on October 21.

We’ve heard plenty of predictions re: the iPhone 5’s release date. But this is the first time we’ve heard something concrete from inside a UK-based network.

We’ve long suspected an October release for Apple’s fifth-generation iPhone device, but it’s nice to finally get some specifics.

At present, no one is 100 per cent sure on the sort of spec the iPhone 5 will feature. But we’d expect to see a dual core processor, most likely the same as the one in the iPad 2, a larger display (possibly 4-inches), 1GB of RAM and an 8-megapixel camera and 1080p video recording capabilities.

The O2 representative didn’t divulge any additional specifications or news, but confirmed that the release for the iPhone 5, at least at O2 anyway, would be October 21.

So there you have it: the iPhone 5 will be available from O2 on October 21.
