Al Gore, speaking Wednesday at the Discovery Invest Leadership Summit in South Africa, made a rather subtle comment about Apple’s plans to launch “new iPhones” next month. Gore, a former U.S. vice-president, has been a member of Apple’s board of directors since 2003. The plurality of the word iPhone is important to emphasize, as pointed out by The Next Web, since it has been widely speculated that Apple will be launching not one, but two new iPhones in a few weeks.
The two new iPhone iterations would be the highly anticipated iPhone 5, which would feature a completely new design, 8-megapixel camera, and many other new features. The second new iPhone to be released would be a mid-range iPhone “4S,” which would be less expensive, have a form factor similar to the iPhone 4, and boast minor hardware improvements.
“Not to mention the new iPhones coming out next month. That was a plug,” said Gore exactly.
