Internet is abuzz with reports of Apple launching its next all new designed iPhone in 2012.

Apple is planning to unveil a totally refurbished iPhone in October 2012, almost the same time it launched iPhone 4S in October this year, according to a news report in BGR.

The new redesigned iPhone will be made up of plastic or rubber bezel material which will attach the glass front side to an aluminum back. The bezel material will be same to that of iPhone 4S cases, according to the report, which cites a close source.

The new plastic or rubber bezel will cover the refurbished antenna system that would pave the way for the device to have an aluminum back without the black plastic strip which can also be found on the back side of 3G iPad.

Although the report doesn’t mentioned the iPhone’s screen size but according to the rumors the next iPhone will have a 4-inch display screen.
