iPhone 5 launch prices will be identical to the current-generation handset, a report claims.
9to5Mac claims to have uncovered evidence from a US retailer that the top end handset (purportedly the one packing a whopping 64GB of memory) will be $399 on a two-year contract.
That equates to an outlay of £399, assuming the usual Apple dollars-to-pounds premium applies this time around.
The entry-level 16GB and mid-range 32GB models, meanwhile, should come in at $199 and $299 respectively, a part codes matrix obtained by the site reveals.
News of Apple’s plans comes amid mounting excitement around a press call this Wednesday that is expected to see the unveiling of the sixth-generation iPhone.
The handset is expected to introduce a larger, four-inch display to the iPhone for the first time – up from 3.5-inches – and feature more processing power and 4G support for super-fast browsing.
What Apple is planning for this year’s Siri-style USP, however, is not yet clear. But recent evidence suggests it could be fingerprint security technology to add a layer of extra security to the PassBook app that allows the iPhone to double as a digital wallet.
