Citing unnamed industry sources, Digitimes reports that happen plans to unveil two new smartphone models in 2013. The first will be a follow-up to the iPhone 5. The second will reportedly be a new, lower-cost version. Both will feature 4-inch displays.
Digitimes also says that Apple has a third new iPhone model being worked on that has a larger display, but notes that the device is not slated to debut in 2013.
