Apple iPhone 5 would go into full production starting from Sept this year. This means that iPhone 5 will not be released anytime soon, probably late this year or early next year.
According to a note released today, Avian Securities states:
“Supporting out comments over the last month, conversations with yet another key component supplier indicates that production for iPhone-5 will begin in September. This is consistent with Avian findings in the supply chain in recent months and we believe the consensus view is moving towards this scenario. “
Another surprising news about iPhone:
“As a reminder, Avian has uncovered several data-points in recent months pointing to the existence of a lower-spec/lower-price iPhone. A lower-spec/lower-price iPhone has also been speculated in the press and gadget blogs, though we do not believe consensus currently discounts the existence of such a model.”
So is Apple focusing on producting 2 different iPhones: iPhone 5 and another lower spec iPhone model together?
We’ll wait and see.
