Apple’s next iPhone to reportedly feature larger screen and ‘brand new exterior design’

iPhone 5S Release Date

Reports from industry watchers continue to suggest that Apple (AAPL) is preparing to launch two new iPhone models this year, and new purported details surrounding one of them have emerged. Citing multiple unnamed sources within Apple’s supply chain, including some sources that claim to have seen a prototype of the device, Digitimes on Tuesday reports that Apple will launch a new low-cost version of the iPhone aimed at China and other emerging markets sometime in the second half of 2013.

According to the report, Apple’s new low-end iPhone will feature a “brand new exterior design” and a larger display in response to the “prevailing trend for the adoption of 5-inch displays for high-end models.” The report also claims that Apple is working with China Mobile to finally launch the iPhone on its network.

Earlier reports suggested that Apple is planning to launch the “iPhone 5S” by June with several new color options beyond just black and white. Multiple independent reports have also claimed that Apple will launch two different versions of its new iPhone, though it has been suggested that the “iPhone 5S” will keep the current 4-inch display used on the iPhone 5 and a second low-cost model will include a smaller display rather than a larger one.[bgr-post-bug]
