Apple will be launching six models of the iPhone 5, code named “N42″, at next week’s special media event at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center. 9to5Mac has received information from a well-known U.S. retail chain indicating that Apple will be launching black and white versions of iPhone 5 and the carrier will be providing it for the following prices: iPhone 5 16GB for $199, iPhone 5 32GB for $299 and iPhone 5 64GB for $399 with a two-year deal.
The A and the B tagged with the code indicates black and white version of iPhone 5, and the N42 iPhone is believed to be sold at the same price as the iPhone 4S. New, iPhone 5 related accessories like cables, cases and next generation adapters are also reportedly set to ship with the phone, the report added.
Here is the part codes matrix for the new iPhone launch from a source at a well-known U.S.retail chain: N42A-USA -$199, N42B-USA-$199, N42A-USA-$299, N42B-USA-$299, N42A-USA-$399, N42B-USA-$399. A + B signify black and white.
We also understand that this new iPhone N42 will come in the same prices as the iPhone 4S. With this, we speculate that the configurations will remain at the iPhone 4S’s 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities.
The iPhone 5 is highly anticipated to support LTE connectivity, which would increase these prices up. We believe that the LTE-enabled iPhone 5 models are likely to be priced at $329 for the 16GB, $429 for the 32GB and $529 for the 64GB.
The new iPhone will not ship immediately in all countries, however.
