Yes, it will be redesigned.
STILL Think the iPhone 5 Won't Be Redesigned?
EDIT: Looking more and more likely that it will not be redesigned... I will still hope for the best though. Haha
I don't mean to insult anyone's intelligence, but do you really still think that the iPhone 5 is not going to be redesigned after seeing this video?
Why on earth would this case manufacturer make all these cases if they were not sure of what was happening??? These look like quality cases, too. Not crappy 50 cent ones.

I sure hope all these case manufacturer's are right, if Apple takes 16 months to come out with an iPhone 4 with a different chip that would be pathetic, and I doubt they would sell like some people think they will. Most of my family and friends have already switched to Android or Window's phones, every single one told me screen size is why.
By this time next year or 16 months from now when the iPhone 6 should be coming out, this "4s" would be as outdated as a 3G is now. Apple cannot be that dumb.

It will be redesigned. That whole case-mate thing? It's to keep the public interested and it's a wink and a nod to a redesign. I'm wondering how big ppl here want the screen to be- I don't think they're really gonna increase the size, 3.7" maybe.

There is no doubt in my mind the Apple is going to introduce a new designed iPhone. As Redbeard put it, why would Apple take 16 months just for a dual-core chip. Plus... this is Tim Cook's first intro of a new iPhone and it will be a "WHOPPER of an iPhone". Believe it !!!! Apple isn't going to put Tim Cook up on the stage for the 1st time and have him show off an "upgraded" iPhone 4. Tuesday Oct. 4th can't come fast enough. It is going to be very exciting.

I like the Tim Cook/Wow factor argument, it makes sense to have a product that would make a statement and also be its own, not an obvious "part 2". I am also hoping for a redesign, and cannot imagine they would risk the ho-hum of sticking with the same appearance right now

I think the people over at Apple are smart enough to realize that the growing presence of Android is a threat. When the 3g and 3gs came out there wasn't as much competition as there is now. Now you have Android phones with 4g capability, bigger screen sizes, and even a 3d feature in some. These type of companies hire analyst's to research these type of trends to find out what the people really want. Apple knows they have to bring it come October 4th, and a simple spec bump with the same body style won't cut it!

Apple also does not hire research analysts to identify trends. They set the trends. Apple doesn't ask people what they want. Steve Jobs once said, ďA lot of times, people donít know what they want until you show it to them.Ē
This 5th gen iPhone may or may not have a striking physical redesign. Whatever it does have in terms of hardware & software improvements, people will know they want it once they see it.

What if we're asking the wrong question?
I could see the answer to the question being YES, the iPhone 5 will be redesigned.
But what if this release is NOT the iPhone 5? What if it's the iPhone 4GS which is NOT a redesign - what if that's the Oct 4 announcement and the iPhone 5 comes later, say in the spring, about the anniversary date of the VZW iPhone?

And why wouldn't a multi-billion dollar global company like apple hire people to analyze what's going on in their own industry.
