Earlier today, we heard that Apple could possibly be increasing the size of the iPhone in light of a possible iPhone mini. Although that’s not necessarily confirmed, a more-trusted source, The Wall Street Journal, is now reporting that Apple is working on a lower-cost iPhone, and it could be coming soon (via iDB):
While Apple has explored such a device for years, the plan has been progressing and a less expensive version of the flagship device could launch as soon as later this year, one of the people said. The cheaper phone could resemble the standard iPhone, with a different, less-expensive body, one of the people said. One possibility Apple has considered is lowering the cost of the device by using a different shell made of polycarbonate plastic. Many other parts could remain the same or be recycled from older iPhone models.
Although we’ve thought a cheaper iPhone was always a rumor, it seems we have a solid source who is almost confirming a less expensive device. What are your thoughts on such a device? Let us know in the comments below.
