As expected, Apple is holding an event at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, Wednesday, Sept. 12, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.

The Cupertino-based company has just invited members of the press to the event, where they will likely be the first to hear about the next-generation iPhone — which, if you’re reading things into the shadow on the invitation, may be called the iPhone 5. (Even though that name would make very little sense.)

Based on the latest rumors, the next-generation iPhone will look pretty darn similar to the iPhone 4S, but with a slightly thinner and larger screen and a two-tone body. The device’s display is expected to be 4 inches instead of 3.5 inches in diagonal, and elongated (so that its aspect ratio is wider).

As far as the device’s guts go, 9to5 Mac’s Mark Gurman says that prototype version of the next-generation iPhone is rocking 1GB of RAM (which would double what is believed to be the current device’s amount of RAM). iMore’s Rene Ritchie adds that the device will be 4G LTE compatible — just like the latest iPad.
