According to insider reports, Apple is expected to pull the iPhone 5 from the product line-up once it releases the lower-cost iPhone 5C, which will become Apple’s mid-range device. This is in-line with earlier report from Ming-Chi Kuo, analyst of KGI Securities which expects the iPhone 5C to cost around $400 to $500 without contract, not as low-cost as we previously believed. Thus, the entry level iPhone would be the iPhone 4S.
Kuo’s claim however, runs contrary to recent rumors, stating that the iPhone 5C would replace both iPhone 4 & iPhone 4S completely. Adding that Apple is doing away with the 30-pin connector and replacing it’s entire iPhone line-up with the new Lightning connector and feature a 4 inch Retina display.
The iPhone 5S is expected to be the high-end model with added fingerprint sensor and dual LED flash for better low light pictures. iPhone 5C however, would have the feature of current iPhone 5, including an A6 processor and 4 inch Retina display.
