The Japanese Apple news site Macotakara announced based on unidentified sources, that Apple in two years instead would work on a new iPhone. The two models are quite different, however, because the one model will be made of plastic and therefore cheaper, whereas the other iPhone will feature a 4.5-inch screen and the iPhone will replace the fifth
A new cheaper iPhone plastic
Rumors say that on Macotakara were disseminated to Jony Ive and his team are working on an iPhone, which is intended primarily for emerging markets and the housing is made of polycarbonate. This material is similar to the material that was used for the housing of the white MacBooks. The cheaper cover makes unprecedented is also the price of the plastic iPhone noticeable, because the price is estimated at about $ 330 dollars, which would correspond to the equivalent in Euro’s € 254.
The iPhone is due to the plastic polycarbonate housing to be slightly thicker than the iPhone 5 By comparison, the iPhone currently have an aluminum housing.
To decide now is whether these cheaper iPhones actually match Apple’s product philosophy and market philosophy and we actually have an iPhone soon plastic will hold in your hands. Because at the beginning of the year told Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of product marketing, a Chinese publication that cheap smartphone “will never be the future of Apple”, although several subsequent reports created the impression that his words were mistranslated .
Also one should not forget that, for example, as sometimes Samsung biggest competitor Apple already sells an ever-growing number of cheaper devices in lucrative emerging markets like China, India and Brazil. It appears as though more unlikely that Apple is watching idly while Samsung (and other candidate Mitt) taps a full market. So it’s more likely that Apple will eventually bring a better model on the market. Whether it will then be made of plastic, however remains to be seen.
If the iPhone 5 will be replaced by the 4.5 inch iPhone 6?
Apple is also rumored to be working on a successor to the iPhone 5 – if it could be explained to the iPhone 6, or only to the south behind the iPhone 5 remains unclear. Supposedly, the new iPhone will a 4.5 inch display, and would thus have a half-inch larger than the current iPhone 5.
In addition, the new iPhone will be equipped with two LED flash modules, which would be placed right next to the lens with one another in order to take better pictures in low light can.
In the past, Chinese website has had both a plurality of results in an accuracy of rumors, as well as many misinformation. Nevertheless, a fairly balanced match quality is still better than a plain error. But as it always is with rumors, only time can tell us what is right or what not, unless an employee of Apple announced the early information.
