Apple releasing two iPhone models in the coming weeks. One is a major redesign of the current iPhone 4 – the anticipated iPhone 5 – and the other is an inexpensive handset for the masses tentatively named “iPhone 4-plus” (or iPhone 4S, depending on whom you ask).
The latter will re-use most of the components found in today’s iPhone 4, replacing the $99 iPhone 3GS as the entry-level iPhone. Sporting “minor improvements”, iPhone4-plus is said to cater to low-income markets.
Rumored iPhone 5 features include a larger screen (3.7 to 4 inches) as well as a faster A5 or A6 processor and 1GB of RAM. Memory capacity is expected to stay at 16GB and 32GB. We also hear it will be a World Phone which means it will be compatible on both CDMA and GSM networks. At the moment there are two models available with one for GSM and the other for Verizon. On the back an 8 megapixel camera is expected as well as a CCD that can handle low-light pictures better.
