New iPhone 6 / 5S to go on sale in July, cheaper model in August?
Here we have new (and obviously unconfirmed) rumors about Apple’s next-generation smartphone, which should end up being called iPhone 5S, or iPhone 6.
According to sources in Japan, Apple is planning to announce the new iPhone on June 20. However, sales won’t start in June, but sometime in July.
The June 20 announcement date is a bit odd – since Apple’s WWDC 2013 will be held between June 10 and June 14, and it doesn’t make much sense for the company to organize a separate even just one week after that. But we’ll see what happens.
It’s said that the iPhone 5S / 6 won’t be a significant upgrade when compared to the current iPhone 5 model, so it’s probably going to sport a similar 4 inch Retina Display (with 1136 x 640 pixels). A quad-core processor, wireless charging capabilities, 2GB of RAM, and a dual-LED rear camera are also among its rumored features. Only in 2014 Apple will seemingly introduce a larger (4.5 inches) iPhone.
Apparently, the long-rumored cheaper iPhone is also due this year. It won’t be launched at the same time with the iPhone 5S / 6, though, but in August. Apple unsurprisingly hopes to conquer markets like China and India with this cheap iPhone – which, by the way, could cost as low as $330 unlocked.
