Apple Could Release Cheaper “iPhone 5e”, Not 6c
The next 4-inch smartphone made by Apple has been in the rumors for many months now, yet it still hasn’t become official. That may change in the next few weeks, however, if we go by some recent speculation.
This unlikely news has come from the Chinese website cnBeta, suggesting that ‘e’ stands for ‘enhanced’. The website has cited Foxconn sources that revealed the specifications and features of the new iPhone 5e.
If the rumored pictures are to be believed, iPhone 5e doesn’t seem much different from iPhone 5s. Citing the Foxconn staff, cnBeta mentions that a rose gold version will also be made available. Also, the device will be slightly smaller and thinner than iPhone 5s.
iPhone 5e is ‘enhanced’ version of iPhone 5s
Additionally, the staff was also quoted saying that iPhone 5e is expected to be released in 16GB and 64GB capacity versions.
The report claims that the cheaper iPhone 5e could start at around $500. About the launch date, the phone is expected to see the daylight in late February or early March. In China, the iPhone 5e is expected to cost CNY 3,288, which right now means $500 or €459.
