The iPhone X is not the cheapest handset you can buy now, although there are ways to make it less expensive. In most cases, you still pay the $ 1,000 price tag, whether you do it all at once or in installments. This fall, one of the three new iPhone X successors that Apple is working on could be priced at $ 550.
Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities is among the most accurate Apple insiders ever, and he shared a new note with customers about Apple's 2018 model.
The analyst says that Apple has released three iPhone Models in the stores will have, including a 6.1-inch LCD model and two OLED versions with 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch screens. Some of these versions will be Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS), including 6.1
The 6.1-inch single-SIM iPhone X version will be the cheapest model of all, Kuo believes. Here is a quote from his memo of MacRumors :
6.1 "LCD iPhone may have a model that supports DSDS when the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone with DSDS and single-SIM In our opinion, there are two benefits to be expected: (1) more price segments would be created, which will significantly boost shipping via the low-priced single-SIM model, for example, if the DSDS model for 650-750 US Sold the single-SIM model for 550-650 US dollars, and (2) the DSDS model will help to increase market share in China and in the commercial markets.
Kuo claims that the iPhone finally gets a dual-SIM option, but the update makes it clear that the 5.8 The iPhone X, which will be released this year, is the direct successor to the original iPhone X.
DSDS iPhones, support the dual LTE support, Apple should help, in China more iPhone s with dual sim for sale phones are very popular. In addition, a cheaper new iPhone could help Apple sell more phones. The sky-high price of the iPhone X is one of the reasons why the sale came to a standstill after the Christmas quarter. Another report earlier this week said that prices for this year's OLED models could start at $ 899 instead of $ 999.
If this $ 550 iPhone price tag is accurate, it would be the first time that Apple sells a brand new iPhone for much less than previous entry-level prices. Sure, Apple will discount one-year-old phones by $ 100, and you can find an affordable option in Apple's lineup as long as you're ready to opt for the 2016 or 2015 technology.
Kuo says that mass production for the 6.1-inch iPhone will start three to five weeks later than the OLED models due to the recent decision to add an American Idol model.
The analyst added that Apple's supply chain in the fourth quarter of 2018 to the second quarter will grow sharply in the quarter of 2019, thanks to the move. The 6.1-inch LCD iPhone and the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone are Apple's most popular phones this year. The LCD phone could account for 65% to 75% of all iPhone shipments in the first year.
