When it comes to the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone, one thing holds true: there are people all over the world looking forward to what the next generation device is going to offer. Along with this, there are just as many who are hoping that Cupertino finally offers a cheaper version of its popular smartphone.
At this point, nobody really knows what Apple is thinking. While its competitors continue to bring new devices to the market, including Samsung, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is sitting back and waiting. Of course, this is not much different than what the company has done in the past. The only difference is that Cupertino has struggled as of late, especially with its stock price taking a huge hit.
If all of this is interesting to you, we have a rumor that is sure to knock your socks off.
It comes to us from DigiTimes: Apple reportedly to release 2 new iPhones in 3Q13
As you know, DigiTimes has a spotty track record. Sometimes their information is dead on, and other times they miss the point.
Here is a brief excerpt from the piece:
“Apple reportedly plans to launch two models of its iPhone family in the third quarter of 2013 and has asked makers in the supply chain to prepare production capacity for 20 million units a month, according to industry sources in Taiwan.”
If true, we will not have to wait much longer to see what Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been working on. Even better, there is a chance that the world will finally get to see a cheaper iPhone from Cupertino.
The article goes on to say that the iPhones will not be released any earlier than June, and will “include a revised version of the iPhone 5 and another low-cost iPhone model, which will be comparable to the iPhone 4S in hardware specifications but with a lower specification display and processor, the sources indicated.”
The same article goes on to talk about competition for a cheaper Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone, stating that Samsung is going to push out a low-priced variation of its popular Galaxy S4 in the third quarter.
