Apple To Launch Three iPhone Models Next Year, Third One To Be A Mid-Range Smartphone With A Cheaper Price Tag
People over at Nomura have shared a new note that detailed their investors this Monday. It detailed Apple’s plans for the year to come and the big announcement in September, According to the note, we are most likely to receive three devices next year as well.
Two out of the three iPhone variants to be released next year will feature OLED screens while the third one will use an LCD panel and Face ID. As for the size, the two OLED panels will come in different sizes, 5.8-inches, and 6.5-inches. The screen sizes are measured diagonally for a clearer perception.
In addition to this, a 512GB variant of the iPhone is also expected. The amped-up storage will be new as the current iPhone X model is available in 64 and 256GB. Moreover, the devices are also said to be equipped with a dual SIM card module. Even though the availability to put two sim cards in a device is much more common in China and other Asian markets.
Lastly, the notes also mentioned that the third iPhone model will be launched with a cheaper price tag. The said device will cater the middle-range smartphone segment and will cost around $600-$900. The iPhone will feature a single lens rear camera and no 3D Touch functionality. This is probably due to the low cost of the smartphone that Apple has deduced the long existing features on the iPhone.
As for who is assembling the device, Pegatron and Winstron will probably make the device instead of Foxconn. Foxconn will be part of the manufacturing process of all the high0end iPhone variants. if Apple is planning to target the mid-range smartphone market, does that mean that the company will further increase its prices of the high-end smartphones?
