Budget iPhone

ENGLISH VERSION

So now we are going to talk about the future where nobody knows what it is until it comes

Above is rendered picture of budget iPhone by some sources.
What if Apple introduce this budget iPhone with such colorful colors that very similar with its iPod Touch, launch at $ 350? Sounds yummy , huh?

Think about this, how could Apple win from Samsung if they don’t have such artillery like them? Let’s take a look at Samsung’s line up.

As you can see, Samsung line up starts at a $ 100 phones, from 3 inches to 10 inches screen. Users are free to choose which one they like or suit their budget.

How about Apple?
They only had iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad Mini, and iPad.
So if Apple add another line up, says budget iPhone, that would be very nice. American analyst thinks that this is the right time to sell budget iPhone to maximize sales in developing countries.

The probability is quite high, recently people not really thinks that smartphone should have high-specification, they don’t care about how many processor it have as long as they can browse internet, updating social media, no lag or hang, that’s it. In Apple, that requirement shouldn’t be so hard because its the only company produces both software and hardware, so they know how to maximize the capability of its devices.

From all rumors I heard, this is what we expect Apple to launch….

Processor
I think that this iPhone won’t have high-spec hardware. For instance, today iPhone 4 performance quite enough for daily use. It doesn’t have to be as fast as iPhone 5, as long as it can open and install apps without any lag. So if Apple wants a budget phone, I think they will use same processor as iPad mini, probably A4 or maybe newer A5.

RAM
Most likely will have 512MB, in iOS such value is enough. People will hope that Apple will doubles it memory. But, as it a budget phone, 512MB is okay.

StorageThere will be an 8 GB version, will launch at $ 299. That price will be same as 32GB iPod Touch. Consumer will choose whether they want a phone with little storage or an iPod with larger storage. Because it almost impossible that Apple will add microSD slot.

Screen
There will be also 4″ screen. But maybe the screen quality a little bit lower than its siblings the iPhone 5. It will have iPod Touch screen.

Design
As above, rendered image shows that this budget iPhone will have plastic back. But I think it is better for Apple to change it to use same backdoor as in iPod Touch. It is more interesting and cool than those plastic shit.
 
Camera
You may already know that Apple always proud of its imaging section. Every reports tells that most people use iPhone camera and uploaded it into Flickr. From the 5MP sensor in iPhone 4 to the 8MP with better low light ability camera on iPhone 5. For this budget phone, it maybe use the sensor in iPhone 4.

And if this budget iPhone launch, there will be such headline like…

“THE MOST AFFORDABLE IPHONE YET”
or maybe
“THE MOST COLORFUL IPHONE YET”
or
“THE MOST COLORFUL AND AFFORDABLE IPHONE YET”

See you in September

INDONESIAN VERSION

Selamat malam

Kali ini kita akan berbicara tentang masa depan yang ga ada seorang pun tahu sampai masa itu datang.

Tuh warna warni mirip nokia lumpia ya berwarna gitu iPhone nya.
Gimana kalo September nanti keluar budget iPhone dengan warna warna ceria mirip iPod Touch dengan harga mulai $ 350. Kedengerannya yummy sekali yaa.

Jadi gini, sampe kapan pun kalo jualan kayak sekarang Apple ga akan bisa nyaingin Samsung. Ya liat aja line up hapenya Samsung.

Tuh bisa diliat line up Samsung mulai henpon sejutaan sampe tabletnya, banyak banget kan. Layarnya ada dari 3″ sampe 10″, ini jadi kayak toserba, user terserah mau beli yang mana yang pas diliat dan pas di kantong.

Lah Apple cuman punya iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad Mini, sama iPad.
Makanya kalo nambah satu line up lagi, says budget iPhone, pasti bakalan keren sih. Orang orang pinter di Amerika sana sih nyebutnya budget iPhone. Karena seperti yang gw bilang di awal, harganya bakalan berkisaran antara 3 – 4 jt an.

Kemungkinannya lumayan besar, udah gitu sekarang orang juga udah ga terlalu mendewa dewakan spesifikasi, mau pake berapa jumlah prosesor juga ga peduli yang penting buka internet kenceng, bisa update selalu di social media, ga pake nge lag dan jarang nge hang. Dan itu semua ga perlu spesifikasi teralu tinggi, apalagi untuk produsen yang juga membuat sendiri softwarenya kayak Apple.

Gw coba meraba raba rumor yang ada.

Prosesor
Kemungkinan besar spesifikasi dari iPhone ini ga terlalu wow, karena sebenernya hardware sekelas iPhone 4 aja juga cukup kalo cuman buat daily use. Ga perlu sengebut iPhone 5 lah, yang penting kan ga ngelag aja kalo buka aplikasi atau kebanyakan install aplikasi. Jadi kalo memang dibuat budget iPhone, prosesor yang akan digunakan akan sama dengan yang digunakan iPad mini, minimum A4 atau lebih baru lagi A5.

RAM
Paling cuman 512MB, kalo di iOS sih ram segini masih cukup. Walaupun gw berharap Apple akan berbaik hati untuk menaikkan RAM nya jadi 1GB, tapi demi harga yang terjangkau, 512MB cukup lah.


Storage
Akan muncul edisi 8GB, seru kan kalo harganya $ 299, tapi ga mungkin sih terlalu mepet sama iPod Touch 32GB. Ya nanti tinggal dipilih kan mau henpon dengan storage kecil atau iPod dengan storage besar. Soalnya kemungkinan untuk menambahkan microSD slot di iPhone sangatlah kecil atau bisa dibilang ga mungkin.


Layar
Karena iPod Touch udah 4″, si iPhone kemungkinan bakal ngikutin segitu juga. Cuman, gw ragu kalo panel yang digunakan bakal sama dengan yang ada di iPhone 5, jadi sih sepertinya bakal share layar sama iPod Touch 4″. Emang sama sama Retina Display, tapi layar iPhone 5 udah pake panel IPS jadi kinclong bener warnanya. Atau jangan jangan layar mereka udah plek ketiplek sama ya? Ya pokoknya 4″ Retina Display deh.


Design
Seperti gambar yang udah gw share diatas, kemungkinan bakalan berbodi plastik. Lagi lagi karena alasan cost down, eh, kalo gitu, hape yang pake bodi plastik itu hape cost down donk ya? Ups. Anyway, gw rada berat sih kalo ngebiarin Apple bikin budget iPhone pake bahan plastik, kenapa ga dipake aja bahan yang sama dengan yang digunakan di iPod Touch aja? Menurut gw jauh lebih menarik daripada pake plastik.

Kamera
Di iPhone, kamera merupakan nilai jual paling tinggi, Apple tau betul itu. Liat aja setiap ada laporan pertumbuhan perusahaan, pasti Apple ngasih liat grafik pengguna kamera terbanyak yang upload di Flickr. Dan kamera di iPhone emang bagus semua, mulai dari iPhone 4 sampe sekarang iPhone 5, ga ada yang mengecewakan. Dan di budget iPhone ini, kemungkinan yang akan digunakan sensor 5 MP yang ada di iPhone 4, atau kalo Apple baik sih dikasih sensornya 4S, mayan 8 MP.

Dan kalo budget iPhone ini jadi dibuat, mungkin headline nya akan seperti ini:

“THE MOST AFFORDABLE IPHONE YET”
atau bisa juga
“THE MOST COLORFUL IPHONE YET”
atau bisa jadi
“THE MOST COLORFUL AND AFFORDABLE IPHONE YET”

mulai ga ada ide…

Abis ini kita bahas penerusnya iPhone 5, stay tune…

Topiq
