8GB Apple iPhone 5s coming as soon as December to emerging markets?
Citing sources from the supply chain, a report published on Friday states that Apple intends to give price conscious buyers in emerging markets an 8GB version of the Apple iPhone 5s to buy. This replaces the 86'd Apple iPhone 5c that was sent out back and shot with the unveiling of the new iPhones on Wednesday. The 8GB iPhone 5s will be arriving around December, in emerging markets like China and India.

Just a couple of years ago, the iPhone 5s was at the top of the iPhone fleet. Unless Apple returns to a smaller screen size in the future, the iPhone 5s will be the last iPhone to sport a 4-inch screen.

As far as pricing is concerned, the supply chain source says that the 8GB Apple iPhone 5s will be priced slightly to the north of what the company charged for the 16GB Apple iPhone 5c. The 8GB iPhone 5s will keep all of the specs of the original device (not including native storage, of course). It is powered by an A7 chipset with the M7 motion coprocessor inside. The 16GB iPhone 5s is currently priced in India at the equivalent of $498 USD, so we should expect the price of the 8GB model to come in lower.

Thanks for the tip!
