iPhone 5 & iPhone 4S both landing Oct, says JP Morgan

Apple will unveil a cheaper handset along with the iPhone 5 next month, one of the world’s biggest investment banks has predicted, as the mythical iPhone Nano comes closer and closer to reality.

Analyst Mark Moskowitz of JP Morgan told Forbes that the banking behemoth now “expects two new iPhones” to show next month. One of these will be the iPhone 5 with its “lighter, thinner form factor” and beefed-up spec sheet.

Alongside it, though, we’ll get something dubbed the iPhone 4S. Aimed principally at the Chinese market, this will differ only slightly from the current-gen Apple phone.

According to Moskowitz, the handset will become Apple’s new mid-range offering, with the 3GS retained as the entry-level option.

Apple is expected to keep costs low for the 4S by opting for a smaller screen and by recycling parts from the iPhone 4, such as the single core A4 processor.

Conversely, tech watchers anticipate a beefy A5 dual core chipset for the iPhone 5, along with a more capacious four-inch screen and an eight megapixel camera. You can sign up for iPhone 5 deal alerts here at uSwitch.
