If you purchased an iPhone X already this news might make you suffer from buyers remorse just a little. KGI Securities reports that in 2018 that a trio of new Apple iPhone X smartphones will hit the market. Welp…
KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, expects that Apple will release 5.8-inch and 6.1-inch OLED model and a 6.1-inch version of the iPhone X with an LCD display.
Kuo reports that like the original all three of the second generation iPhone X’s will be full-screen and feature the TrueDepth camera. Both the 5.8-inch and 6.1-inch OLED modes will also retain the original phones resolution of 1,125×2,436. The 6.1 LCD is slight downgrade sporting 320-330 PPI.
According to a note obtained by Mac Rumors the 6.1 LCD model is targeted at to low-end and mid-range market.
*Migos voice* Now whats the price?
The 6.1 LCD model is rumored to cost about $649 to $749 in the United States. No word on how much the “iPhone X Plus” it will cost but we are sure it’s going to cost a grip.
Two new OLED models target high-end market; new TFT-LCD model aims at low-end & midrange markets: We believe the major hardware difference in the two new OLED models is size, in a bid to satisfy various needs of the high-end market. The new TFT-LCD model will differ significantly from the OLED models in hardware and design specs (for instance, the PPI will be lower). The primary selling points of the TFT-LCD model may be the innovative user experience of an integrated full-screen design and 3D sensing with a lower price tag (we expect it will likely be US$649-749).
With the original phone already costs a strong $999 dollars so be prepared to not to pay a bill or two for the month. Kuo also projects these phones won’t suffer the same production problems either like the iPhone X.
He is very upbeat that they will meet consumer demand due to Apple’s supply chain being more experienced with iPhone X production. Again this all rumored but Kuo has been right before about this according to Mac Rumors.
So do you wish you waited? Or you perfectly fine with your first generation Apple iPhone X?
