Gene Munster, a famous analyst, has published a research note concerning his thoughts about the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S.
According to Munster, the iPhone 5C will not boast Siri and it will replace iPhone 4S and will be selling for $300 off contract.
In terms of the phone itself, we expect the cheaper phone to have a plastic casing, 4" display, and lower end internal specs (processor, camera, memory, etc.) than the 5S/5 line up. Additionally, we believe that Apple may exclude some software features, such as Siri, which we note was not an option on the iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 upon launch.
