Apple is set to rival Samsung in the mid -end Android smartphone market. The Cupertino-based tech giant who is believed to be working on a low cost iPhone since last year could announce affordable iPhone during WWDC. Since the beginning of the year in some form or the other there were instances found which indicate that affordable iPhone is indeed real. The handset won't resemble to iPhone 5 at all, claims a renowned Analyst. The low cost iPhone is said to be made from polycarbonate plastic chassis instead of aluminum body.
Apple hasn't really cracked developing markets such as India and China. With a low cost iPhone the tech giant is eligible to compete against Samsung, who is currently king when it comes to low-mid-high end Android based handsets. Apple really benefitted in India when the tech vendor came up with a unique way to sell iPhones by introducing EMI schemes. According to reports, iPhone sales in India grew by 400 % making Apple among the top league. In the span of few hours two different sources from China got their hands on low cost iPhone. The images shown by two different sources somehow gave accurate information about affordable iPhone (via GSM Insider).
Later the above mentioned alleged images of low cost iPhone were posted on Sina Weibo, an equivalent to Twitter. Going by the above mentioned images, the device seem to be very close to iPhone 3GS in term of design. With ‘Curvy ‘design, there is a chance of affordable iPhone to succeed in the market. The Apple iPhone 3GS proved to be a big crowd puller due to its minimalistic design thus it is safe to say that the low -cost iPhone has a chance to be a success. From the first image, the rear back of the mysterious device was exposed. The second image was more refined in a way, as one can easily sense: a 3.5mm headphone jack, Lightning port, and a speaker.
With WWDC is around the corner, Apple may like to update iOS by bringing new features and fresh UI. There is a chance to see a refreshed MacBook Air at the upcoming developer conference. Stay tuned to GizBot.
