With Apple fans, industry analysts, and market watchers eagerly anticipating Apple's next move, sources out of China claim to know what the iDevice-maker will do next: release the iPhone 5S sometime in August.
The iPhone 5S may be Apple's hottest release this summer, but there's a good chance it won't be Apple's only smartphone launch. Apple, according to Chinese tech news site EMSOne, is still planning a more affordable version of the latest iPhone model, which will be produced from polycarbonate rather than glass or aluminum.
Although it remains to be seen if the "cheap model" actually manifests (following months of rumors we are all tired of), we do know that the iPhone 5S is coming. And based on a consistent stream of consistent information from industry sources, the next iPhone refresh will be a true world model.
Unlike current iPhones that need different models for separate carriers, the iPhone 5S will be one to rule them all, compatible worldwide. This also suggests a new chip like Qualcomm’s LTE processor that words on 40 bands.
