The iPhone 5 makes its next big overseas sales debut next Friday, November 2 as local media have begun to report the leaks. (You can find the MacRumors roundup here.)
We've contacted Apple for comment and will update this post when more information becomes available.
The Economic Times of India, citing unnamed sources, reported that next Friday's launch "is certain" with iPhone shipments arriving over the next two or three days.
Similarly, the Bangkok Post reported confirmation of the November 2 date from an unnamed "industry source."
In Greece, the iPhoneHellas blog (translated), reported the same date but did not reveal a source.
Publications from Bulgaria, Malta, and Romania cited wireless carriers as the sources for the launch date. MacRumors also listed Croatia, the Dominican Republic, and Mexico in this round, but did not say cite specific sources.
