iPhone 5C could deflate 5S release
We all think that Apple will release the iPhone 5S this year based on previous releases, they went from the iPhone 4 to the 4S so it stands to reason they will follow suit and release the iPhone 5S – or will they?
This is now questionable after we reported the news about the iPhone 5C, which to be fair we all think it is going to be the budget iPhone made of plastic. The photo below was leaked out of China and now the C after iPhone 5 is being questioned if it could actually mean ‘Color’ aka iPhone 5 Color.
The bin is filled with plastic boxes with the name iPhone 5C stamped on them, Apple Insider readers have been commenting suggesting the C stand for color, with some of them commenting Apple may not release the iPhone 5S because they will release the iPhone 5C instead.
Is the C for Cheap or is it for Color?
Apple do not need to enter the low-cost smartphone market, they have great sales already and all they need to do is bring us new innovative features and new colors, a totally different design would be welcomed as well. Apple has no need to be pushed into the cheap market just because Samsung do, it will just discredit Apple’s name after so many years of selling premium iPhones.
Yes we have reported about the iPhone Lite with different colors, we have also mentioned the budget iPhone, but Apple users would prefer one model called either the iPhone 5S or 5C, the 5C seems more practical if they did release new colors instead of the two they provide at the moment. Apple needs to speed down the mainstream path and bring something new to the table; the iPhone 5S is not going to be anything new other than a refresh.
The iPhone 5 has a 4-inch display and this is a premium smartphone, releasing a cheaper phone is not the way forward, a new iPhone 5C with new color options and between a 4 and 4.5-inch display is ample. Samsung and HTC release a smartphone and then decide we need a smaller version so here is the mini, just see no point to these at all, maybe Samsung should concentrate is getting software updates out to current users rather than spending time trying to release as many phone as possible.
We reported earlier today that the Samsung Galaxy S2 Android 4.2 update might not ever arrive, where is Android 4.3 for the Galaxy S4, in fact where is 4.2.2 for the Galaxy Note 2 and S3?
No one will ever know what Apple is doing until they officially announce products in September, the S in iPhone 4S meant speed, could the iPhone 5S mean speed or sensor for fingerprint sensor? Now that has you thinking, please do comment.
Do you think Apple should release the iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C?
