Apple 'Will Launch Cheap iPhone This Year' According To Top Analyst

Apple 'Will Launch Cheap iPhone This Year' According To Top Analyst

Other rumours have been taken to referring to the budget model as the iPhone SE 2; but it's far from certain that Apple will be using that name. Kuo said on his note that the single-SIM variant of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone could sell for between $550 and $650 United States dollars, while the dual-SIM model could cost between $650 to $750. Based on the price, that makes it a strong competitor to many Android phones. Then again, maybe the potential gains would be worth the risk for Apple.

In fact, the dual sim slot is also planned for 6.5-inch OLED iPhone that would be launched this year.

Kuo predicts that the 6.1-inch iPhone may release as the cheapest option alongside two premium models: a 5.8-inch iPhone X successor with an OLED screen, and a 6.5-inch OLED iPhone X Plus.




The note reaffirms the rumour that there will be a 6.1-inch iPhone aimed at developing markets and entry level users. A previous report, citing Kuo's prediction, claimed that instead of combining LTE and 3G connectivity, the iPhone maker is in plans to add support for two LTE networks consequently to its dual-SIM model. The single SIM model could "help increase market share in China and commercial markets" according to Kuo, and I have no doubt that it could sway some Android users in the U.S. whose primary gripe about Apple products is their price.

Apple is reportedly working on three new iPhones for this current year, 2018. The single SIM variant is said to cost anywhere between $550 and $650 (that range converts to about £390-£460 or AU$710-AU$840), while the dual-SIM variant is said to cost $650 to $750 (about £460-£530 or AU$840-AU$970), according to the note. Today, new reports came in which suggest that the new lower-cost iPhones would be priced under $550. Let us know what you think of the upcoming iPhones in the comments!
