Things have started to heat up on the iPhone front for Apple, it appears. Word from the field is that the company is preparing 3 new iPhone models for release in 2015.
Reports about future Apple smartphones usually begin surfacing towards the end of the year, and this time around, sources from the Far East are claiming that the Cupertino based technology giant is making a return to the 4-inch screen size this year.
Peculiar, yet very interesting at the same time.
This report reveals that Apple is keen on pushing these smaller 4-inch screens onto customers that demand a small but powerful phone from the company.
And supply chain sources are cited in the report believe that this small new iPhone will supersede the current iPhone 5C, with release set for the second half of next year.
The logic behind this move cannot be ruled out, even if the rumor hardly comes from a credible source.
Apple upped the ante with the 4.7 and 5.5 inch screen sizes for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus respectively, but prior to these the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S sold in record numbers. The company could technically bring down manufacturing costs by using the same parts for this new handset.
Still, it is hard to discount rumors and reports from the Far East, considering the fact that this is where these things get manufactured.
We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
