A new report has emerged questioning the slew of recent rumours suggesting Apple planned to unveil two new iPhone devices on 4 October.
The new reports stemmed from BGR. BGR cited its claims on a new research note from Wedge Partners analyst Brian Blair. Running contrary to previous speculation, the note claimed that Apple only planned to unveil one new iPhone model, at its 4 October media event.
The letter went on to allege that the new iPhone would be the widely speculated re-worked iPhone 4S rather than the truly next-generation iPhone 5.
"We expect the focus of the new iPhone will be iOS 5, a speedier A5 processor and a higher resolution 8 MP camera with a small possibility of a larger 4 inch screen," read Blair's note.
"We don't expect a second, dramatically different iPhone to accompany this as we don't think Apple needs to have 3 models in the market to address the high end, mid-tier and low end since the iPhone 4 (with memory lowered to 8 GB) will drop to $99 and effectively attack those markets."
The new report refers to recent speculation suggesting Apple planned to unveil two smartphone devices in its big media event on 4 October. The rumour began earlier in September when tech site All Things Digital alleged Apple's new CEO Tim Cook was set to announce the iPhone 5 during the company's next "big media event."
Following the initial rumour fresh reports have emerged suggesting Apple board member Al Gore had since lent credence to the theory, confirming Apple's next entries into its iPhone franchise would be hitting stores this October.
At the time this article was written Apple had not released any official information confirming or denying the slew of new iPhone rumours.
