If you are unable to get your hands on the expensive Apple smartphone, then you must be waiting for the budget iPhone. It is expected that the Cupertino company will sell it a low price in order to compete with cheap Android phones. Now China Times is reporting that the budget Apple smartphone will not be a low-end device. T.H. Tung has provided this information to China Times. You should note that Tung is the CEO of Pegatron, which is responsible for the manufacture of budget Apple smartphone.

This is a pretty bad news for the people who are waiting to get their hands on the budget Apple smartphone at a low price. As we know the budget Android phone costs around $150, so you must be expecting that the cheaper Apple smartphone will cost around $150 as it is expected to be a competitor of budget Android phone. The new report suggests that it may cost more than your expectation. An analyst has already reported that the cheaper iPhone may not be a low-end device. He has also reported that the budget Apple smartphone may cost around $350, which is not a small amount for middle class iPhone lovers. The most interesting thing is that Apple has already done the same thing with smaller tablet. Many people have expected that the Cupertino company will sell its smaller tablet for $200, but they sold it for $329.

If the report comes true, then the middle class Apple smartphone lovers may not be able to get their hands on the budget Apple smartphone due to its high cost. A source has recently reported that the Cupertino company will use plastic chassis in this device to keep its cost low. Still the company has not provided any information about its budget smartphone. It is expected that soon they will reveal some information about this device.
