Apple to Launch iPhone 5S World Phone and Lower Cost iPhone in August?

Posted March 1, 2013 at 6:52pm by iClarified · 22593 views
A new report from EMSOne predicts that Apple will launch an iPhone 5S world phone and a lower cost iPhone in August of this year.

AppleInsider relays the Chinese report:

Unlike the current iPhone 5, which requires different models for separate carriers with unique LTE frequencies, the so-called "iPhone 5S" is expected to be a world phone that will add compatibility with new carriers, including China Mobile.
As for the cheaper iPhone, Friday's report claimed it will not be a world phone, and will only support the frequency division duplex (FDD) flavor of LTE. China Mobile's network uses time division duplexing (TDD) for its LTE network.

Although it's widely expected that Apple will release an iPhone 5S this year, it's still unclear if or when the company will release a lower cost device for emerging markets or a larger device to compete against the huge Android phones flooding the market.

i have just dumped my nexus 4 due to the screen size tbh all the new phones @ 5 inch & 4.7 inch are not pocket friendly & i don't feel safe with android apps being so open source. i have had the iphone 3gs then went to iphone 4 then decided to try android as itunes software was getting to be annoying as android allowed me to drag & drop my music & apps how ever 18 months on i don't trust android for security & the unreliable updates causing basic apps like my plantronics headset to fail. another reason is th build quality of apple iphones so i think with that as the main reason i have decided i can live with using itunes. perhaps apple should try a survey for what customers want but the numbers would have to represent the survey out come like a few million respond not your die hard kid who wants a big screen & games etc tbh a smart phone should be smart in what the label says ie text message features,WIFI speed,bluetooth file transfer as for facebook or other social media sites leave those on the app store let users build there own smart phone OS.

I'm a sorry ass who has fatty wife with mammoth sized feet. So whenever she works around, it's like some big ass creatures are moving around. And she doesn't even have sense that she need to her baby not to stomp around. But she does it anyway, because she's typical white trash sorry son of bitch... I go to military for a living and my ran is not even commissioned officer. So I'm a pathetic loser who dose have dead end life...
