Apple Plans for 4.7 inch & 5.7 inch Screens for 2014 iPhones, iPhone 5S and Budget iPhone Launching in September
As per a recent report from Reuters; Apple’s upcoming new iPhone models would hold larger screens for as the company is exclusively testing display sizes of 4.7 inches and 5.7 inches for its iPhone models likely to be launched next year. At present, the iPhone 5 comes with a 4-inch display, up from the 3.5-inch displays found in previous models.
Apple is looking at introducing at least two bigger iPhones next year – one with a 4.7-inch screen and one with a 5.7-inch screen – said the sources, including those in the supply chain in Asia. They said suppliers have been approached with plans for the larger screens, but noted it is still unclear whether Apple will actually launch its flagship product in the larger sizes.
“They constantly change product specifications almost to the final moment, so you’re not really sure whether this is the final prototype,” said one person with direct knowledge of the matter.
The report also discloses Apple’s plans for this year, as it claims that the company would launch both an iPhone 5S with fingerprint sensor technology and a low cost iPhone in multiple colors in the September.
For this year, Apple is expected to launch two new models, widely referred to as the iPhone 5S, with new fingerprint technology, and a cheaper version in plastic casing, supply chain sources have said. Apple plans to dress up the cheaper phone in a range of 5-6 colors to differentiate it from the more expensive model that has traditionally come only in black and white.
The U.S. firm has discussed a price of $99 for the cheaper phone, the timing of which could slip to next year, one of the people said. It’s not yet clear what the final price would be.
On the other hand, a report from Macotakara today claims that the low cost budget iPhone will feature colors from Apple’s line of iPhone 4 bumpers, while the iPhone 5S will be available in a gold model along with traditional black and white models.
Now I got an information from reliable source what the color set of low-cost iPhone seems to be same as iPhone 4 Bumper color.
Black, white, pink, orange and blue will be set. Green seems to be removed from it according to that information.
That source did not say if (PRODUCT) red-model is planed or not.
And, iPhone 5S, which will be shipped in August, has new color model. It is Gold, which color is reported by BGR with showing SIM-tray photos.
To conclude, Reuters confirms a post from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, pointing out that test production of the budget iPhone would begin from this month however due to issues related to color coatings, the production process is comparatively slowed down.
We have already posted the news indication the iPhone 5S with finger print sensors and lower-cost plastic iPhone models. Similarly, Apple’s plans for adopting larger screen iPhones next year have also been covered at our pages whenever we heard any news from any reliable source in this regard.
Likely, Apple is going to larger-screen iPhone models just for keeping its grip tight global smartphone markets as its competitors (specifically Samsung) have already released larger screen phones in the range of 5 inches or more.
