Waiting for the next Apple iPhone? Well according to Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster you won’t have too long to wait.
He has told Cnet that he thinks that the next gen iPhone – the 5S – will land in June but also adds that he thinks it won’t be as big a hit as its predecessor.
According to Cnet Munster suggests that Apple will sell 4 million units of the new phone before the month and the quarter are over. That estimate compares with the 5 million iPhone 5 handsets sold during that model’s opening weekend.
The analyst has also been scoping out what he thinks will feature on the new handset. He says that there is an outside chance that the phone will come with a NFC chip and finger print treading to enable it to act as a bank card – see here for more – but that is more likely to debut on the iPhone 6.
So Munster is sticking with a faster processor, better camera, and some software enhancements.
So if he is right will that help claw some of the ground back that the company has arguably lost to Samsung?
What do you think?
