Low Cost iPhone: Earlier today, we brought you a story about some potential upgrades for the next generation Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad. If you want to see images of the rumored device, you can do so by checking out this article: Apple, A Sneak Peek of Its Next Big Device.
While a new Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad is sure to get people excited, the same holds true for any change to the company’s smart phone. Tactus, the same blog that broke the story about Apple’s next generation iPad, is trying to one up itself today with another piece.
This time around, the blog has posted images of a budget Apple iPhone.
In other words, these images are supposedly of a cheaper iPhone from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) that would help the company better compete in emerging markets.
As you know, there have been a lot of people discussing the possibility of a cheaper iPhone. For example, you may want to take a closer look at this article: Apple: What’s Gene Munster Saying Now? Hint: It’s Good News.
On the pages to come, we are going to share with you an image of this potential Apple iPhone.
Here is what Tactus is saying about the images:
“It looks like it features an all uniform plastic polycarbonate shell – very different to the iPhone 5′s sleek aluminium look, but still modern and covetable.”
As you will see, this Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone does not appear nearly as sleek as the one you are used to. That being said, there is something about the potential Apple design that stands out. It does not appear to be cheaper, despite the fact that it will definitely retail for less than the company’s traditional smart phone.
At this point, we cannot expect Apple to speak about the potential of a cheaper iPhone in the near future. In fact, the company has denied in the past that it will ever consider a more affordable smart phone. Of course, this happens all the time. A company says one thing and then does another.
Whether or not Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has plans to release a cheaper smart phone to the market in 2013 remains to be seen.
For now, your wait is over. On the next page, you can see an image of this rumored device:
