Apple has told networks to expect two handsets to be unveiled today, a report claims, adding weight to rumours that the company’s launch event will feature the iPhone 5 alongside a cheaper model.
A source at an unnamed UK network reportedly told the Guardian that the only thing they know for certain ahead of today’s showcase is that “there will be two devices”. That’s pretty unequivocal, no?
The shadowy insider (aren’t they always?) also disclosed that horse trading over pricing with Apple is set to start straight after the house lights go up at the press call at the company’s Cupertino nerve centre.
Meanwhile, UK networks will announce their contract prices starting on Thursday, he says, ahead of the devices landing in stores across Blighty from October 14th.
Speculation that Apple will break with tradition and launch two phones simultaneously has been rife for months. If rumours are to be believed, the low-cost phone will be called the iPhone 4S and recycle parts from the current-generation iPhone 4 to keep prices down.
