Have you made up your mind to ditch Samsung Galaxy S4 and bring iPhone 5 home this summer? Well, here’s some good news for you. The load on your pockets is likely to go down. Surprisingly accurate analyst of KGI Securities, Ming-Chi Kuo, has predicted the launch of a budget-friendly version of Apple’s recent release iPhone 5. And the reduced price is not the only advantage; the phone will also come tipped with a 4-inch Retina Display.
Apple is renowned for earning huge profits by selling quality merchandise, so the entire concept of budget phone has pushed the team off-edge. However, eyeing the changing economic trends and the surging demands to cut down on prices to maintain profitability, have prompted Apple to come up with the plans of budget iPhone. The immense popularity of mid-range Android phones is another factor that fuelled the speculation of pocket-friendly device coming from Apple’s end.
Be Ready to Welcome Some Changes down the Lane
However, to keep up its profit levels, Apple has introduced certain changes in the production line of this budget iPhone. After all, selling exactly same thing at a lower price and expecting an upsurge in the bottom line doesn’t sound quite clever. Video game giant, Nintendo, followed the same suit and hasn’t seen a successful dawn. One of the paramount changes to be introduced in Apple’s low-cost phone will be reflected in its case. The case of this new phone will be a mix of glass fiber and plastic. This change might have been introduced following the hearty acceptance of plastic-bodied Galaxy S 4 models by users. Apple is probably trying to read the pulse of the masses, which are willing to invest their money in smart phones that are more than just metal backs.
The display, however, remains undeterred. The new entrant in the Apple clan will also have a 4-inch Retina Display just like its high-line predecessor, iPhone 5. Amidst these predictions, the biggest question that is boggling the mind of both industry experts and iPhone users is- whether the appearance of the budget iPhone differs from its expensive counterparts?
