J.P. Morgan Predicts Redesigned iPhone 5 and iPhone 4-Plus

Posted September 19, 2011 at 3:22pm by iClarified
J.P. Morgan analyst Mark Moskowitz predicts Apple will launch a redesigned world-mode iPhone 5 and a lower end iPhone 4-plus this fall, reports the Financial Post.

J.P.Morgan's research suggests the iPhone 5 will be based on a lighter, thinner form factor that is GSM and CDMA capable. In other words, a "world-mode" smartphone, but not LTE-capable. Mr. Moskowitz also expects the iPhone 5 will have a larger retina display that the iPhone 4′s 3.5 inch screen and include an 8 megapixel camera with LED flash.

The iPhone 4-plus device is anticipated to be based on the current iPhone and subsume the iPhone 3GS as the lower-end offering. Mr. Moskowitz thinks it could target one or more network carriers in China, but is unlikely to be exclusive to the region.

Case-Mate may have 'accidentally' leaked the design for the rumored iPhone 5 last week via a product page for its 'Barely There' case. Apple is expected to launch the new phone sometime around the 7th to 15th of October.

Really JP Morgan!? You finally have someone read one of the hundreds of Apple blogs who have been posting this information for months and then call it "research"? Brutal.

+1 Agree. If that what qualify as an analyst at J.P. Morgan then maybe i should apply.

I want that job, too, because apparently copying what others have said for weeks is the only qualification needed.
