Apple will come out with its next iPhone this summer and make it available in multiple colors as well as with different screen sizes, an analyst said Wednesday.
Topeka Capital Markets’ Brian White said he expects Apple to launch the next-generation iPhone, which many believe will be called the iPhone 5S, in May or June, according to BGR.
In addition to the current black and white options, White said he expects the new iPhone to come in pink, yellow and blue. White also said he expects the Apple smartphone to offer multiple screen sizes, though he did not specify the sizes.
BGR quoted White as saying that the company has never offered multiple screen sizes for a single model, but “we believe this is about to change with the next iPhone offering different screen sizes that we believe will allow Apple to better bifurcate the market and expand its reach.”
White’s predictions mirror many of those of Jeffries’ Peter Misek, who last month said he also expects the next iPhone to come out this summer and be available in more colors. Misek, however, said there would be six to eight color options.
If the seventh-generation iPhone launches this summer, it would be the first time since 2010 that Apple rolls out its smartphone during that time period. The last two iPhones, the 5 and the 4S, launched in the fall.
