Digitimes has recently stated a rumor about Apple releasing a cheaper iPhone in the second half of 2013. The new iPhone, “iPhone 5S” will most likely have a plastic back cover, and specs like the iPhone 4S.
Other rumors have stated differently. Additionally, the iPhone 5S may have a chassis mixed with plastic and metal. Other rumors say that it may have a chassis mixed with plastic and glass, but most likely not the materials that the iPhone 5 is made of.
I believe that Apple will release this iPhone, with the specifications of the iPhone 4S. I would like the iPhone 5S to still have the 4 inch display, maybe not retina. It’ll probably have the camera of the iPhone 4, but the chip will probably be A5, like the iTouch 5. Apple could save space by using the new lightning connecter, but, again this iPhone is suppose to be a combination of the iPhone 4s, iPhone 4, and iPhone 5.
