Apple May Launch Low-Cost iPhone With Larger Display In The Second Half Of 2013


Taiwanese publication DigiTimes reports that according to their supply-chain sources, Apple is planning to launch a low-cost iPhone model in the second half of 2013.

The report notes that Apple will launch the low-cost iPhone model in China and other emerging markets.

DigiTimes reports:

Apple will roll out a low-cost version of the iPhone for China and other emerging markets in the second half of 2013, according to supply-chain sources.

Some sources claimed that they have seen the sample of the low-cost iPhone, which will come with a larger display, meeting the prevailing trend for the adoption of 5-inch displays for high-end models. They added that the low-priced iPhone will also have a brand new exterior design.

We’ve heard several rumors that Apple is working on a cheaper iPhone, unofficially dubbed iPhone nano. The cheaper iPhone could be priced at $200 without a contract, according to some reports. But it seems unlikely that the cheaper iPhone will come with a larger screen.

It will be interesting to see if Apple will launch the cheaper iPhone in other markets like U.S., UK etc. or it will be only for emerging countries like China, India etc.

Things will certainly get more interesting in the smartphone marketplace if Apple launches a cheaper iPhone. What do you think?

    Why does this site come up with such rubbish. Apple would never ever have a product limited to specific countries that’s not there business model. Anyway all the $200 phones would be exported to the western world for $350 where they would sell like hot cakes

      When half the world is India and China, does selling like hot cakes even matter?
