Apple iPhone 4 with 8GB Storage Likely for Production

August 24, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Apple is running fast and riding high with all their high-end products out in the marketplace. The iPhone mill was running amok with rumors about the fifth-generation iPhone and a possible wallet-friendly iPhone.

Now, there’s a little sugar added to these wild news, as we hear the Cupertino company is seemingly all set to push another version of iPhone 4, with a storage of nothing less than 8GB, into the market. The flash drive of the cheaper iPhone is reportedly being manufactured by a Korean company.

This could help Apple boost sales in the emerging markets, where customers prefer low- to mid-end Smartphones. Apple may have to compromise either on specs or lower the cost of materials and assembly.

The current features of the iPhone cannot exactly be brought under a ‘budget’ price, but Apple is expected to offer a cut-price iPhone with less storage.

There has been no word from Apple regarding the product. The company is very careful in maintaining silence on the details of its suppliers.

South Korea’s Samsung Electronics, which sources flash drives to Apple, has also declined to comment.  The 8GB version is expected to launch within weeks.

The iPhone 5 is expected to be on shelves in September. Because of their structural similarities, we hear that the iPhone 5 is being referred to as the iPhone 4S.

Apple, it seems, has told manufacturers, Hon Hai and Pegatron, to prepare production capacity of up to 45 million units. Not exactly a low number!

So which one do you look forward to? The budget-friendly iPhone 4 or the snazzy iPhone 5?
