Rumor for iPhone 5S or iPhone 6: Bigger, Cheapper and more.
It has been long to say for Apple will bring a cheaper iPhone to occupate of the low-price market to beat with Samsung. Maybe the one I'll talk about is right the one.
What are the key characteristics will the iPhone 5s or iPhone 6 have? Let's take a look.
1. Plastic handset: The details were published on Thursday by Japanese blog Macotakara, which claims the handset will be made of a material similar to the glossy polycarbonate body Apple used on its entry-level MacBook, which was discontinued after it was replaced at the $999 price point by the 11-inch MacBook Air.
2. Lower Price: Apple is said to be targeting a price of US$330 for the device, though it's unclear if that is an unsubsidized price for the phone or not. The price is really lower than the iPhones before.
3. Bigger Display: Macotakara also reported that Apple is developing a polycarbonate iPhone measuring 4.5-inches, a few stitches more than the 4-inch iPhone 5. Despite the bigger screen, the phone is said to largely take after the rest of the iPhone family - home button under LCD display and all.
That's all the rumors for the cheaper, bigger iPhone for next year.
