A financial analyst with a track record when it comes to predicting novelties from Apple has published a presumable Apple’s roadmap in a note to his clients. The imaginable roadmap does include an entry-level iPhone, affordable notebook with retina-quality screen, but lacks long-awaited Apple-branded HDTV.

Ming-Chi Kuo, a financial analyst with KGI Securities, who has a good track record in predicting Apple's product plans, according to MacRumours web-site, has published a new research report outlining his expectations for Apple's 2013 product launch plans. The analyst expects Apple to refresh and/or redesign virtually all of its products this year.

When it comes to products specifics, Mr. Kuo projects new plastic-made iPhone 5 (which is going to weight more than the one made of metal, based on the report), new iPads as well as new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with high-density/retina-quality displays. The majority of introductions are reportedly scheduled for Q3 of 2013, which is not in line with other rumours (which suggest refresh of iPads in March), but is in line with Apple’s general refresh schedule.

Apple reportedly plans unleash iPhone 5S with a number of upgrades including an Apple A7-series system-on-a-chip with a higher performance in mid-2013. In addition, the firm is projected to release a discounted version of the iPhone 5 made of plastic, which is projected to be available for free with a contract.

Apple did not comment on the news-story.
