Apple plans to begin mass production of the its next iPhone this quarter, according to the WSJ. This would align with rumors of a June/July launch for the iPhone 5S.

Additionally, Apple is said to be working on a less expensive iPhone that could launch in the second half of the year. The device is said to have a 4-inch display but a different casing than the higher end phone. Although Apple has looked at different color shells, its release plans are still unknown.

How the innards of the next iPhone may differ from the iPhone 5, which went on sale last September, remains unclear. Apple often upgrades the processor and other components like the camera between models. Apple is also expected to ship the next version of its iOS mobile operating system around midyear, other people familiar with the matter have said.

You can check out some recent concept images of a low cost polycarbonate iPhone in several colors and screen sizes here.

I can't wait either. I want the 5s. I wonder what greatness apple will give us with it. Good idea on making a more affordable phone also. I want the 5s though. I can finally upgrade.
