This is the iPhone 5. I got my hands on this Apple phone not in the Philippines but in Bangkok, Thailand. It’ s looks exactly like the iPhone 4 / iPhone 4S, only the iPhone 5 is thinner, lighter, and taller by about a half-inch.
The iPhone 5 looks fragile in my hand I was afraid I’d drop it. I wasn’t able to take much photos because the assistant at iStudio in Gateway Ekamai in Bangkok has been watching me.
I haven’t heard when the iPhone 5 Philippines launch will happen but I’m guessing Smart will have a super lavish one like last year. As for Globe, I’m expecting more affordable postpaid plans for the iPhone 5 albeit a simpler media launch.
I’m not really keen on getting the iPhone 5 because it doesn’t look much different. I know it’s faster but really, I’m not in a hurry to change my iPhone 4. However, my 2-year contract is about to expire so I’ll check the offers first. This or the iPad Mini. 😛
