Now that the iPhone X has been out for per week, it’s time to get began on rumors for subsequent yr’s iPhones. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, whose iPhone predictions have been pretty dependable over the past a number of years, says that he expects to see two new full-screen iPhones subsequent yr: one could have a 6.5-inch OLED show, basically making it a Plus model of the iPhone X; and the opposite could have a 6.1-inch LCD show, doubtless making it extra like a full-screen model of the present Plus-sized iPhone. And sure, each could have the notch.
The LCD model will likely be cheaper, however with a worse display screen
In his analysis observe, which was reported by MacRumors, Kuo writes that Apple is hoping to “fulfill numerous wants of the high-end market” by increasing its full-screen product line. On the excessive finish would be the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone; beneath that will likely be an up to date model of the 5.Eight-inch OLED iPhone X; and at last, the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will sit beneath each them. Kuo predicts that the 6.1-inch telephone will likely be priced someplace between $649 to $749 and be set aside by having a less-dense display screen decision, providing a worse image.
If Apple does introduce a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, $749 actually appears too low cost for it to promote at — the iPhone Eight begins at $699 as it’s, and the Eight Plus begins at $799. The 6.1-inch telephone appears like a step up from the prevailing Plus mannequin, so it could make extra sense to promote it for, say, $899, proper between a refreshed model of the Plus and a refreshed model of the X. After all, it’s potential that Apple will likely be extra aggressive in its pricing and in bringing new know-how down via its product line, however I wouldn’t be optimistic. The corporate likes to take its time and work these revenue margins.
