June could see the announcement of three new iPhones: a next-gen iPhone, a cheaper model and an all-new iPhone ‘Plus’ according to the China Times. Citing sources in Apple’s supply chain, the report suggests that two iPhones – an iPhone 5S and a model featuring a 4.8-inch screen – will both be announced and released before the end of June. It also suggests that another model, featuring a 12-megapixel camera, will be released before Christmas.
A translation of the article by investment news service BrightWire originally named the new, larger iPhone as the iPhone ‘Math’ but a Mac Rumors commenter pointed out that this could simply be a mistranslation of ‘Plus’. This seems like a far more plausible name, but the product? We’re not so sure. A 4.8-inch screen will undoubtedly lead to developers having to redesign their apps and go against the company’s views on large displays on mobile devices.
The report also suggests that Apple will announce seven or eight new products, in total, this year with Apple’s television set among them.
