Cheaper iPhone Plans to Deal with Android Invasion

Apple have been paying no head to low budget smartphone user in the past. On the other hand, budget was a main strategy behind Samsung success toward claiming the crown of smartphone market. Samsung not only worked on high-end phones like Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with relatively cheaper cost, but also launched several low-budget android handsets like Samsung Galaxy Y and Samsung Galaxy Ace series.

Thanks to Samsung, aimed at recovering its falling share, now Apple has decided to revisit its policy of constantly ignoring budget smart phone user for years. Cheaper iPhone mini is the part of fight back strategy where Apple is working on an array of new products like iGlass, iWatch, iDisplay, iTV as well as the next generation iPhone 6, iPad 5, iPad Mini 2, iPod Touch 6G, iPod Nano 8G along with new MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and Mac Pro.

Reuters reported that Apple is working on a cheaper iPhone aimed at the lower income consumers in the market. Following news that Apple supplier Pegatron was increasing its workforce by 40% news started surfacing that Apple was working on a release of a cheaper iPhone.

Pegatron is the company that assembles iPads and iPhone’s for Apple. Releasing a cheaper Mini iPhone will help Pegatron with its operating margin as the Mini iPhone will feature plastic casings that are easier to make as compared to the normal Metal casings for the iPhones. This is aimed at ensuring a good yield rate. The plastic casings are similar to the casings that were used in the 3G and 3S version of the iPhone. The use of plastic casings in contrast to the normal metal casings in the other versions of the iPhone is aimed at reducing the manufacturing costs.

Cheaper iPhone Mini is expected to contribute up to $22 billion worth of revenue in 2014 and more than $5 in earnings per share. This will add the value of Apple stock price by $50. Apple has a projection of addressing 15% of the $500 million units in the low end Smartphone market.
