KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo addressed to investors on Monday regarding iPhone market forecast that the long-rumored device from Apple, "iPhone 5C" could replace the iPhone 5 while Apple will continue sales for iPhone 4 series. Apple's iPhone 5C might not be a "low end" product after all as rumors are concerned. The logic behind that line of thinking was that Apple wanted its entire iPhone lineup to feature larger than 4-inch display screen with faster connector by removing the legacy 30-pin connector from the Apple's product lineup.

The "iPhone 5C" is expected to include largely the same components as Apple's currently available iPhone 5, including an A6 processor and a 4-inch Retina display. Apple is expected to cut costs and boost margins by featuring a plastic back for the device, which is likely to reduce the present rate, but can't expect very cheap price. It will be having fingerprint sensor beneath the home button as well as a dual LED flash component for better low-light photos. Apple has not confirmed anything yest regarding this and we have to wait until the event organized by Apple on 10th September regarding unveiling its new iPhone.
