We have seen many iPhone 5 cases from China, but now a reputed accessory maker Case Mate has thrown their hat in iPhone 5 ring. Case Mate has posted six different case designs for the new iPhone 5 that shows complete redesign of the next generation iPhone. Case Mate has also posted a notification page, where you can sign up to get arrival information about cases for both iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S. Case Mate has posted the following on notification page:

Days away from Macworld Asia, the countdown to the iPhone 5 announcement and launch is officially on. More and more reports have surfaced reporting that Apple is expected to reveal the long awaited iPhone 5 coinciding with the conference in Beijing. As Apple fans around the globe patiently wait out the final days, our inside resources have the sought-after details on the iPhone 5 features, including the form factor and launch date.

The new iPhone 5 will feature a completely different form factor than its predecessor. Wider and thinner, the redesigned device features an extended home button. The screen size could see an increase to 4 inches.

The debate continues on whether the new iPhone will be an iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S. From our inside resources, it appears that Apple will be indeed launching both an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 4S in early October. The iPhone 4S will feature the same form factor as the iPhone 4 but will be upgraded with the latest technology, including the A5 dual-core processor and 8 mega-pixel camera.

Case Mate is placing a very big bet on their “inside resources” and might have to pay a big price if they are wrong or if Apple gets angry with them. However, this iPhone launch is taking many unexpected turns and it will be interesting to see what Apple has up their sleeve. [Via BGR]
