There are leaks after leaks floating around regarding a lower cost plastic-backed smartphone from the iPhone department. Sonny Dickson shared some high definition photos of the lower cost iPhone which allegedly to be codenamed iPhone 5C.
Has Apple compromised quality for the new model? As an Apple fan, I am pampered by the outstanding quality and flawless design on each and every model released. Even Android fans has to agree that Apple product is in a class of it’s own. This new model in no way looks like a premium product.
The latest leak from a Chinese micro-blogging site Sina Weibo suggests that the lower cost iPhone would cost 3000 yuan which is equivalent to $490. Yes. That’s slightly higher priced than an iPhone 4.
According to the report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, iPhone 5C is expected to be released in September 2013 followed by iPhone 5S soon after. Till then, keep your fingers crossed.
