A well-known and highly respected analyst for Morgan Stanley says Apple will likely build more than one new iPhone model this summer.
This latest chatter corroborates with speculation from supply chain sources and other knowledgeable industry sources who claim that multiple iPhone models are in the works.
On Wednesday, Morgan Stanley’s Katy Huberty shared some insight gained during her recent trip to China.
- After a slow start, iPhone 5 is now on track to meet carrier volume expectations.
- iPhone 4 price cuts could stimulate incremental demand near-term.
- Carriers see the opportunity for Apple to expand market coverage with 5-inch and lower-priced iPhones over time.
- TD-LTE licenses, and related phone launches, are expected by year-end.
Huberty, according to her research note which was shared with Fortune, suggests that the high-end iPhone 5S could launch in June or July, with the long-rumored low-end iPhone to follow shortly thereafter.
