On a slow news day, with U.S. markets closed for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, there's always room for one more Apple Inc. rumor, and MarketWatch is prepared to serve it up.  

The latest came out of Asia on Sunday night. If the string of reports is correct, Apple is going to announce three new smartphones this year. The first two are apparently new iPhone models -- a 4-inch iPhone 5S device and a 4.8-incher curiously named iPhone Math.


The report surfaced originally in the Taiwan-based Commercial Times, then in China Times. BrightWire then offered up a translation of that China Times report.


BrightWire reports, based on these sources, that these two iPhones will be released by June, and feature 8-megapixel cameras. A third model, of which that report said few details are known, will have a 12-megapixel camera and is coming before Christmas. Read more.
