Brian Blair the Wedge Partners analyst claims that Apple will be introducting one new iPhone model. This is the iPhone 4S modle, which will be introduced at the October 4th media event. These claims are opposite to those of recent rumors that Apple will be introducing two new models which are the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5. However the previous claim does agree with analysts who have not yet view any redesigned iPhone 5.
Quoted by Brian Blair himself:
“We expect the focus of the new iPhone will be iOS 5, a speedier A5 processor and a higher resolution 8 MP camera with a small possibility of a larger 4 inch screen. We believe the casing will be largely similar to the iPhone with some particular modifications to the antennae [sic]. We don’t expect a second, dramatically different iPhone to accompany this as we don’t think Apple needs to have 3 models in the market to address the high end, mid-tier and low end since the iPhone 4 (with memory lowered to 8 GB) will drop to $99 and effectively attack those markets.”
These claims have led to serious questions being asked about the potential that such a device will be launched this fall. Considering that the iPhone 4S has been seen supporting an A5 processor is seems only logical that Apple may indeed be planning only the launch of the iPhone 4S as its next generation of iPhone models.
