New iPhone’s Set To Be Announced in June 2013
If you cast your minds back to the iPhone 5 launch, you may remember that Samsung were doing their best to disrupt the launch by releasing their own advertising campaigns pitched against Apple.
Well, it seems that Apple are returning the favour by churning up the rumour mill just a week before Samsung announce the Galaxy S4.
Just as one iPhone hits the market a couple of new ones are set to make their way into the limelight, and according to all sources we could be looking at an July release of not one but two iPhone’s. We should see the standard yearly iPhone release, which is looking likely to be an iPhone 5S, alongside a cheaper model geared towards the price-conscious buyers who aren’t prepared to pay hundreds for a phone.
The Polycarbonate Phone
An iPhone just wouldn’t be an iPhone is any quality was compromised to reduce the price of the phone, after all Apple’s iPhone is a cult phone that is more of a fashion accessory these days.
At first the speculation was that we could see a complete plastic case (like the Galaxy S3), but I think we are more likely to see a hybrid casing of fibreglass and plastic which does have its advantages in terms of the weight and slimness.
We could also see a variety of different colours for the low-cost iPhone 5.
The iPhone 5S
What everyone is waiting for, the 2013 iPhone, which is panning out to be the 5S rather than the 6. One of the biggest improvements for this phone could be the security and usability with many sources claiming that the 5S will have a fingerprint chip under the home button.
Adding to that, we could also see a new operating system (iOS 7) released with both sets of phones.
