It is in the air that apple will release two new versions of iPhone after iPhone 5 in 2013. One of them is follower of iPhone 5 i.e. iPhone 5S having somewhat similar features iPhone 5 had, other is iPhone 6 which is totally a newer one with very attractive and cheap prices to cater the markets of India and china which are emerging speedily in telecom industry. It is also said that this new version will be without Retina display.
Recently an analyst, Amit Daryanani, belonging to RBC Capital Markets announced the release date of new model in his writing. According to him the iPhone6 will come to market in June or July 2013 and this new design will be of much less price and without retina display which is Apple’s specialty. Amit information sources told that AAPL is planning to launch simultaneously two new versions of iPhone i.e. iPhone 5S and iPhone6. The cheaper one will have same features as that in iPhone5 but will be in plastic casing and without Retina display. These two measures are taken to cope with speedily growing Smartphone market.
It has been reported by many analysts that Apple’s new iPhone models are going to be released this year and it has also been confirmed that iPhone6 will be without Retina display. All these rumors seem to be correct because Daryanani and all others have already given various correct information regarding apple in the past. Ming Chi Kuo, an analyst belonging to KGI Securities is the one who gave information about the complete range of Apple products in 2012. Now he is of the view that iPhone6 will be in the market for use in June or July of this year and this product will have the same features as iPhone5 along with 326ppi Retina display.
Introducing iPhone 6 without retina display is not supporting apple’s causes to lowering its prices because an older iPhone that is iPhone 4 which is now available free in US also has retina display. If the reason behind not giving retina display in iPhone 6 is to lower its cost then it will not do much,
Decreasing the density of screen will not reduce the cost to a great extent as Apple make use of hybrid of plastic and fiber glass for casing of their iPhones. Due to this iPhones are much light weight and slim then other smartphones having plastic casing but less costly then iPhone. Analyst KGI securities Ming-Chi Kuo has reported that iPhone will have aluminum casing so it will be heavier than its successors.
Ending all the rumors of retina display in iPhone 6 will have 326ppi retina display and screen size of 4inches. Moreover touch iPod will be available on May 1st. apple is planning to make a big iPhone whose announcement is expected in June at World Wide Developers Conference. These steps are probably being taken to cater its rivals in the electronic market.
