Next Generation iPhone: Earlier today, we posted an article discussing the possibility for the next generation Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone to be available in a variety of screen sizes. This information was hot off the press, courtesy of Brian White of Topeka Capital.
White picked up this tidbit of information on his latest excursion to China. During that time, he met with suppliers for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), which led him to the belief that the next smartphone from the company could be something big.
Of course, he didn’t stop there. CNN Money has reported on White’s trip to China in great depth, talking about some of the information that he has brought back to the United States.
According to the article, things started getting interesting for White on the third day of his trip to China. This is when he met with “unnamed component suppliers” that convinced the analyst that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is getting ready to launch a variety of new products.
If true, here is a sampling, from White’s sources, of what we can expect:
“A full-blown iTV ecosystem in time for the holidays that will “represents revolutionary innovation for the $100 billion LCD TV industry.”
“An iPhone equipped with a fingerprint recognition ID system for efficient credit card purchases.”
“An iWatch that can also read fingerprints.”
No matter if you are a consumer, an investor, or both, you are likely to be excited about the possibilities.
If you want to learn more about what Apple has been saying about the television market, you don’t have to look any further than this piece. The same holds true for information pertaining to a potential smart watch.
Although we touched on it earlier, it is worth noting again that White feels that the release of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhone 5S will bring two or more screen sizes along for the ride. Here is what he had to say:
“Essentially, we believe Apple is coming around to the fact that one size per iPhone release does not work for everyone and offering consumers an option has the potential to expand the Company’s market share. As part of this summer launch, we believe a lower-priced iPhone will be released, as we have previously discussed; however, our research is now indicating that we should not expect the price to dip below US $300.”
At this point, the only real question is this: did White get his information on these “new” Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) products from people in the know? If the answer is yes, we may be in for some excitement from the Cupertino-based company in the months to come.
