Although the Apple iPhone 5 Cricket price is not known, its release date will fall on September 28, that’s exactly a week after the device goes up on sale in select countries. The company has also revealed that it will go up for sale in the US through carriers like Verizon Wireless, Sprint and AT&T.

The sleek smartphone that measures merely 7.6mm in thickness, houses a 1136 x 640p 4-inch Retina display on its front panel along with a webcam for FaceTime calls. Its rear side accommodates an 8MP iSight camera, complete with features like the panorama mode, a stabilizer as well as the ability to click still shots while recording HD videos. It gains steam from the A6 chipset that rests under the hood and allows users to multitask.

Featuring a nano-SIM card slot, this power-efficient phone can cough up the juice for 3G talk time of up to 8 hours. It operates with the help of the iOS 6 platform which brings features like improved Siri, Facebook integration, Passbook and the Maps app amongst a number of other attributes.

Drenched in shades of black and slate or white and silver, the latest generation iPhone will be available in variants with 16GB, 32GB and 64GB internal storage capacity.

The Apple iPhone 5 Cricket release date is September 28, but its off-contract price has been kept under wraps.
