Apple is testing its next-generation iPhone – iPhone 5S, which is due to be announced in June or July 2013, China National Radio reports. The article cites unnamed inside contact as the source of their story.
This report comes on the back of Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White, report to investors, in which he posits that Apple is due to launch iPhone 5S in the middle of 2013.
“Our checks indicate that the next iPhone will have more choices for customers,” White wrote. “This entails an expansion in both the color patterns and screen sizes with the next iPhone (i.e., likely called the iPhone 5S) that we currently believe will be launched in May/June with certain supply production starting in March/April.”
White reported that, “Our checks are also indicating that the next iPhone will offer customers more choice in terms of screen size. Although Apple offers a 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5 and a 3.5-inch screen on the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4, the Company has never offered multiple screen sizes for a single model. We believe this is about to change with the next iPhone offering different screen sizes that we believe will allow Apple to better bifurcate the market and expand its reach.”
