Analysts are anticipating that the Cupertino-based tech giant is now attempting Samsung strategies to penetrate steep shares in the market this year by launching an array of devices under its leading iPhone brand. This can be said, as earlier this week, iPhone Math rumors already started pouring in suggesting that Apple's 4.8-inch iPhone 5 replacement will come in 2014, not later this year as previously reported.
Previously iPhone 6 codenamed "Math" was tipped to be launched alongside the iPhone 5S, which is scheduled to launch later this year. However, latest rumor seeping have suggested that the handset will be formally unveiled in 2014 as a potential iPhone 6 offering.
The information has come in from the latest Digitimes report, which suggests that Apple would release a lower-cost version of its iPhone with a bigger screen in 2013. Further, the report also added that Apple is indeed developing an iPhone with a bigger screen, but that will not be among the models to be launched this year.
iPhone 6 - What About Features?
Well, the new budget offering by Apple is rumored to come equipped with in-cell touch panel displays. However, at the same time, reports are suggesting that the company is planning to drop the idea of integration of in cell technology and adopt a new "Touch On Display."
But the latest DigiTimes report suggested that due to mass production issues from the technology in 2012, it was not clear whether Apple has sufficient supply of in-cell touch panels in 2013 for a cheaper version of the iPhone.
Contradicting the latest claims and adding further backing to reports of an upcoming 4.8-inch iPhone release later this year, industry analysts have suggested an over-sized iPhone is indeed on the cards for 2013 but that it will not be dubbed the iPhone Math.
What ever may be the case, iPhone Math is claimed to be the Apple's key to counteract on the wide range of large sized Android smartphones available in the market. Will a 4.8 inch iPhone make the Apple fanboys excited? Drop in your thoughts in the comments section below.
