As much as it may have tried to refute claims of a cheaper iPhone in the making, Apple just cannot put a stop to the rumor mills coming up with something new every once in a while. Japanese website Macotakara is the latest to add to it and reports that Apple is reportedly working on two new iPhone models an iPhone 5 successor with a bigger screen and the other an entry-level device.

The report states that this iPhone 5 successor (also known as iPhone 5S ) in development will sport a bigger 4.5-inch screen and will include a dual-LED flash to improve the phone s low-light photo clicking abilities. The two flash exposures are rumored to be stacked on top of one another to the right of the camera lens.
The other rumored entry-level iPhone is said to be made of materials similar to the glossy polycarbonate body seen on the company’s entry-level MacBook. These changes though won t bring in a lot of changes to the device in terms of design, as this new device will still look the same as earlier iPhones with a home button below the LCD display. Apple is also said to be planning to sell it at around $330 (Rs 17,820 approximately) which is iPad mini territory.
Another completely new rumor according to the blog is that the Cupertino-based company will for the first time sell the new iPhones in multiple-colors. Finally the report also says that the iPhone 5S will hit markets in 2014 instead of this year as was previously believed.
