Asian suppliers to Apple have reportedly begun manufacturing a lower-priced version of  the iPhone 4 with a smaller 8 gigabyte flash drive.

The flash drive for the 8GB iPhone 4 is being manufactured by a “Korean company”, that could mean South Korea's Samsung which is Apple's supplier when it is not being sued. The iPhone 4 was first launched in June 2010 with 16 GB and 32 GB versions, with a white version added to the lineup in April. The 8GB version is expected to launch within weeks.

Even with an 8 GB hard drive Apple would be hard pressed to get the phone below $200 without losing some other functions.

The new iPhone, which some call the iPhone 4S because of its largely identical appearance to the existing iPhone 4, will have a bigger touch screen, better antenna and an 8-megapixel camera.
