Just when you were thinking you got a pretty good deal on the iPhone 5, the Wall Street Journal claims that Apple may launch a cheaper version of the iPhone 5 in late 2013.
According to a few briefed on the matter, “the cheaper phone could resemble the standard iPhone, with a different, less-expensive body.” However, we wouldn’t suggest you make any decision based on this, since the Wall Street Journal says that “Apple could decide not to move forward with the device.”
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of something like this, back in early 2011, rumors of a cheaper version of an iPhone arose, but as we know, that didn’t happen, yet another reason not to get too excited. Even Apple’s own Co-Founder, Steve Wozniak says that he wished “the iPhone 5 wasn’t just a taller iPhone 4S,” rather that they should have released two versions, a smaller and cheaper version, and a larger version, that would keep the aspect ratio of the iPhone (4:3) rather than simply ‘stretching’ it.
As of right now, these are just rumors, Apple’s supposed entry into the TV industry being further evidence of this, there really isn’t much that can be said at this point.
As always, TheAppleGoogle, will keep you in the loop, and will be covering more on this as it develops, stay tuned.
What is your opinion? Would you rather wait for this supposed Cheaper version? Or get your hands on an iPhone 5 right now? Do you believe the rumors? Or should we take it with a pinch of salt? Let us know in the comments section below:
