Apple to launch 'low-end iPhone' without Retina in 2013

That's the claim from Amit Daryanani of RBC Capital Markets, who says that the device will have a 4-inch display and come with the plastic casing.

Apple is working to launch "low-end iPhone" which will lack some of the extras found in the company's iPhone 5, one analyst claimed.

In a note to investors today, Amit Daryanani said that Apple is planning to launch many new iPhones in the month of June and July this year.According to AppleInsider, which obtained a copy of his investors note, Daryanani said in addition to a flagship handset that Apple will call the iPhone 5S, the company will deliver a lower-end device featuring "plastic casing and no Retina display."

This wasn't the first time that we are hearing about low-end iPhone coming to the market.Earlier this month, KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple would provide a cheap iPhone five that might escort "hybrid casing of covering material and plastic will create it lighter and slimmer than general plastic casing and easier to create it in varied colours." That device, however, would be heavier than the iPhone 5S.

The result for Apple of delivering a low-end iPhone can be major, Daryanani says. The addition of that handset to the iPhone lineup might bring another $22 billion in revenue in 2014.

Apple appears to be inching its approach toward a lower-end iPhone. the company last year unveiled an iPad mini that is designed to capture customers who don't desire to pay more money on a full-priced, larger slate. Apple additionally still offers previous-year versions of the iPhone to customers on a budget. A lower-end iPhone could split the difference.
