Analyst says Apple may debut low-cost iPhone in range of colors

June 6, 2013 at 4:34 PM

NEW YORK, June 6 (UPI) -- An iPhone costing less than current models could be offered in a choice of five colors and may make its debut ahead of the iPhone 5S, a U.S. analyst says.

Bryan White of Topeka Capitol, in an investors note sent out Thursday, cited research suggesting a low-cost iPhone, likely to be tagged "iPhone Mini," would come in five different colors.

Four of the five colors could be white, black, pink, and blue, White told CNET.

He said the low-cost phone could arrive before the iPhone 5S, which is likely to be unveiled in September if Apple follows its usual schedule of product introductions.

The target market for a less-expensive iPhone would be developing markets where the traditional iPhone is seen as too pricey for the average consumer, White said.

Despite months of rampant rumors about a low-cost iPhone, Apple has kept to its policy of not discussing possible product developments, CNET said.
