New iPhones under development.New information has been released on the next generation Apple iPhones. Yes, that’s iPhones, plural.

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, companies in Apple’s supply chain in Asia are working on two new models of the iPhone side-by-side. One is a high-end design with a metal shell, probably most closely related to the current iPhone 5 model. The other model currently under development is a non-metal shell model that comes in multiple colors. This second model is thought to be a lower-end market iPhone model for developing countries.

No release dates have been discussed, but the Journal’s sources seem to think that the high-end phone could be available sometime  this summer, while the lower-end phone would be introduced later in the year.

The size of the screen for both phones will be identical to the current iPhone 5 screen. It does not appear that the company has any plans to introduce a larger screen at this time.
