All are waiting for the iPhone 5S to hit the stands. Rumors have it that Apple is going to launch a high-end version of the flagship iPhone 5S and it is also going to release budget-friendly version of iPhone 5S with vibrant colors. The Lumia phones introduced by Nokia sport vibrant colors and since then other brands have made attempts to offer their phones in different colors.
A reliable source has revealed that Apple is going to out the iPhone 5S flagship phone in black color whereas the lowly-priced iPhone 5S is going to be available in different colors. We are yet to confirm on the predicted colors for the iPhone 5S as different rumor sources are talking about different colors. Navy blue, gold, and Gray are some of the colors revealed by one source. White, pink and yellow are expected colors of the iPhone 5S from another source.
In the month of June, Apple is going to test the cheaper iPhone 5S. The production will swing into action in July and finally the device will be available for customers in September. Tim Cook who is the CEO of Apple had announced that Apple will be releasing some new products in the winter season. The main reason behind why Apple is releasing cheaper version of iPhone 5S is that they have decided to compete with Android and Nokia Lumia phones which are available at much lower price.
Apple’s action of making cheaper iPhone 5S available in different colors clearly indicates that Apple wants to compete with Lumia phones. The Lumia phones not only sport the new Windows Phone OS but also are available in vibrant colors. The sales of all the Lumia phones such as Lumia 620, Lumia 720 and Lumia 920 have been quite impressive. Recent stats shows that the availability of Lumia phones in different colors have also contributed in the increased sales. However, the sales of Windows Phone powered Lumia phones way behind Android OS powered smartphones.
The iOS is said to be the second favorite operating system after Android which indicates making cheaper iPhone 5S available is a great move by Apple to compete with Android. We feel that Lumia phones though are very popular may not be able to compete with the colored iPhone 5S.
Another interesting piece of news about the forthcoming iPhone is that the device is going to sport dual LED flash for the rear cam. Again such a feature has been already seen on various Android and Windows Phone smartphones. Surely, Apple has decided to take up the fight with Android and Windows Phone by focusing on releasing cheaper iPhone 5S.
