If you consider that the iPhone 5 is the best phone in the world for just about everything; and that you would get one if you could afford to, then you are one of a very large number of people who Apple has now identified. Recognizing that the price of the iPhone is limiting its market, executives at Apple have come to the decision to release a brand new entry model at a significantly lower price than the standard iPhone.

The new phone is likely to be announced in the near future and will be released some time after the launch of the iPhone 6 during the second half of 2013. It is likely to be called either the iPhone 6 mini or the iPhone 6 nano and it will have a smaller display than the standard iPhone.

The iPhone’s current screen size of four inches is just about the perfect size for most things, in particular for playing native and online casino games on sites such as www.luckynuggetcasino.com/online-slots. On these sites, you don’t even need to download an app as you can enjoy your favourite poker game, blackjack or one of the many themed slots games playing from your browser. Although there seems to be a trend amongst Android phone manufacturers to adopt ever increasing screen sizes, this is not a trend that Apple intends to follow. There is an optimum screen size above which the whole device becomes just too cumbersome and, it has to be said, just ceases to look cool. If you want a large screen then get a seven inch tablet rather than a six inch phone.

One of the motivations for a cheaper iPhone mini is to reach emerging market in China, a region that is particularly keen on the phones gaming capabilities. Not only will a cheaper handset appeal to that market, so too will a slightly smaller one as it is easier to hold in the typically smaller hands of Asian and Chinese people.
Both the standard iPhone 6 and the mini version will be more powerful than the current models. They will have faster multi-core processors that will compete with those in high end Android phones, giving them even better graphics and gaming capabilities.
