German retail chain Media Markt has added a 128GB iPhone 5 model to its inventory, sparking speculation that Apple could be planning to double the handset’s maximum internal storage at its iPhone event on September 10. The iPhone 5 is currently available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB variants, but a 128GB model is sure to appeal to plenty of customers.
Either way, we’ll have to wait until next month to find out. It’s unclear how Media Markt obtained information about upcoming Apple devices, so take this with a pinch of salt for now.
Apple notably pulled a similar move by quietly adding a 128GB iPad 4 variant to the lineup back in March.
If the rumors are true, Apple will announce the iPhone 5S upgrade and possibly a rumored plastic iPhone at the upcoming September 10 media event.
