A new report suggests that the next generation of the iPhone (commonly dubbed as the iPhone 5S) will come in a variety of colors and two different display sizes.
Topeka Capital Market analyst Craig White suggests that the new iPhone will bring a brand new face to a familiar product.
“Our checks indicate that the next iPhone will have more choices for customers,” wrote White in a letter to investors. “This entails an expansion in both the color patterns and screen sizes with the next iPhone (i.e., likely called the iPhone 5S) that we currently believe will be launched in May/June with certain supply production starting in March/April.”
White believes that the iPhone 5S will be available in 5 different colors including pink, blue, and yellow – as well as the traditional white/silver and black/slate colors.
The analyst also believes that the iPhone 5S will feature two different screen sizes, which would be the first time that Apple releases more than one screen size for a single model.
“Our checks are also indicating that the next iPhone will offer customers more choice in terms of screen size,” White reported. “Although Apple offers a 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5 and a 3.5-inch screen on the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4, the Company has never offered multiple screen sizes for a single model. We believe this is about to change with the next iPhone offering different screen sizes that we believe will allow Apple to better bifurcate the market and expand its reach.”
White is known as an advocate for the Apple brand at Wall Street. He has repeated his buy rating and prediction that Apple stock will reach $1,111 per share in 2013 – which is double its current worth.
