Speculation: Apple To Reveal 2 New iPhones In September

You wait months for a new generation of iPhone, and then two come along together! That’s the speculation anyway, and it’s coming from Deutsche Bank’s Chris Whitemore who believes Apple will release two new iPhones in September.

September is looking more and more a near-certainty for the launch of the next iPhone, but if what Whitemore is saying is true we will have the choice between two different iPhones.

Whitemore expects the “4S” iPhone to be a modest upgrade to be sold contract free and on the cheap while the the iPhone “5” will be a full upgrade.

“With Nokia and RIMM struggling, the time is right for Apple to aggressively penetrate the mid range smart-phone market (i.e. $300-500 category) to dramatically expand its [total addressable market] and market share.”

A contract free 4S iPhone model would be an attractive offer for those that do not want to sign up to multi year contracts with a specific carrier. Whitemore speculates that the price point for a 4S model would be in the region of a once off payment of $349.

While Whitemore didn’t quote any insider knowledge from an Apple source, a second iPhone model is quite an intriguing prospect and it would be a brave move by Apple.

Do they risk introducing a second new iPhone and run the risk of fragmenting their SmartPhone market or do they turn the heat on the low-end SmartPhone market by making the iPhone 4S an affordable choice ahead of Android and Blackberry SmartPhones?

What do you think?

    I would prefer one new device, maybe at a lower price point marginally.

  2. Oli-chabot says:

    What if, They wait in September, wich is the usual iPod renew, to present two different iPhones, and stop selling iPod Touches, as the middle range iPhone would act like a iPod Touch ?

    1. Elliot Keen says:

      Theproblem is, not everyone wants a phone, I have an ipod touch and a Blackberry and have no need for an iphone and wouldn’t want the ipod touch to become extinct.
      For that very reason, I don’t think they will release two iphones, because the ipod touch is effectively the cheaper alternative to the iphone already.

      1. Mrsurreyguy says:

        Without a SIM inserted it’s basically a iPod Touch. Imagine if you could take your touch traveling and buy a local SIM to get a cheap data option when you can’t find Wifi. It’s possible that the increased volume can of set the savings of removing the modem chip (and you get the better camera)

        Remember AT&T charge $10/mb roaming and Roger/Fido in Canada charge $30/mb while roaming. A cheap “iPod Touch with SIM slot and no contract” would be killer for people traveling (or on Canada’s 3yr contracts)

  3. Taylor says:

    There is absolutely no possible way they will be releasing two iPhones at the same time. I believe if that they were going to release two iPhones in the same year they would have released the “4s” early to give a tease for the sure to be revolutionary iPhone “5”.
