Brian White (Topeka Capital Markets analyst) recently published a note that suggested that Apple is going to release the iPhone 5s in different screen sizes and multiple colours.
“Our checks indicate that the next iPhone will have more choices for customers,” White said. “This entails an expansion in both the color patterns and screen sizes with the next iPhone (i.e., likely called the iPhone 5S) that we currently believe will be launched in May/June with certain supply production starting in March/April.”
“Although Apple offers a 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5 and a 3.5-inch screen on the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4, the Company has never offered multiple screen sizes for a single model,” White continued. “We believe this is about to change with the next iPhone offering different screen sizes that we believe will allow Apple to better bifurcate the market and expand its reach.”
I really think that this really could be a very good idea. If Apple do this it would just be like the iPod touch and the iPod nano, the colour would be your personal choice. The different screen sizes would be nice as this may lead to a cheaper iPhone which could be a big advantage. Apple this is a good idea.
