(CNN) -- Apple will unveil its next-generation iPhone at an event on Tuesday, October 4, according to a report on AllThingsD, a Wall Street Journal blog network.

The phone will be available to consumers "within a few weeks" of that announcement, the publication says, citing unnamed sources.

CNN has not confirmed this news and AllThingsD acknowledges the date could change.

The smartphone likely will be called the iPhone 5 or the iPhone 4S, according to the common wisdom on tech blogs.
