NEW YORK—Apple is planning to begin production of a new iPhone similar in size and shape to its latest version in the second quarter of the year, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

The business daily, citing persons familiar with the device’s production, said the newest model of the smartphone could be ready for a summer launch. The newspaper said Apple refused to comment.

The Journal said that in the meantime Apple was continuing to work with its Asian partners on a cheaper version of the iPhone that could be launched as early as the second half of this year.

The iPhone 5 went on sale at the end of September in the United States and nine other countries.

More than five million of the devices were sold in three days, more than the previous model but falling short of some analysts’ expectations.

    The truth is apple innovation is dead. The “wow” vanished in the thin air and nothing to expect more!

  • peach black

    apple has lost its marbles. wala nang masyadong innovation. the OS is starting to look tired.

    • lucidlynx

      Look tired? What do you mean? Is it slow?

      Frankly, it’s the apps which can run on IOS that make the iPhone such a viable and indispensable tool. And IOS apps are far much better, in quantity, quality, and useability, compared to their Android counterparts.

      In addition, no smartphone manufacturer can match the impressive hardware of the iPhone, especially the iPhone 4S and 5. If you want bigger screens, buy a laptop or a tablet. But for a smartphone, the iPhone’s screen is just about right.

      • boboposter

        Not another Apple fanboy.

        Hardware? Check the benchmark tests for other smartphones. IPhone is currently lagging.

        Software? History tells us that development in an open source OS is still the best.

        Haha Iphone is not the fastest… LoL……. Samsung S4 is and many more… look the benchmarks on the net to see it.

        Just google the word “fastest smartphone”… Iphone 5 in fact ranked 5th…. is that the word best for you? New vocabulary huh!

        Iphone 5 is just 2 cores running in 1.3Ghz with 1GB RAM while Galaxy S4 a quad core running at 1.9Ghz with 2GB RAM <– simple math… no need actualization. 1.9 is bigger than 1.3 and 2GB is bigger than 1GB much more 4 cores is better than 2. And here's more they are similarly priced =)

        Sabihin mo yan if you’ve even tried iPhone and another flagship phone of another company. I have used the iPhone for several years and got tired of its small screen so i migrated to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Boy was I happy to have made the shift! The Note 2 is way, way better than my iPhone. No regrets at all…. I bought 32 GB extra memory to store my thousands of pictures and hundreds of songs. Now I have space for several thousands more. Guess I couldn’t do that on my iPhone. Talk about the impressive features of your iPhone.
