A Pple's next smartphone is almost here. The company is expected to launch three new devices next month, as part of its lineup of flagship iPhones. But while newer usually means more advanced, the new units can also show a better value decline than their predecessors.
The new phones are expected to come in three flavors, all of which use the same face recognition and home button-free design of the iPhone X. The cheapest is a 6.1-inch LCD model, which is rumored to trench advanced features like 3D Touch and the other rear camera lens. The middle phone is probably a 5.8-inch OLED model, similar to an upgraded version of the iPhone X. The third is a 6.5-inch OLED model, which serves as a major version of last year's phone.
CEO Tim Cook shocked observers in September last year when announcing that the iPhone X launch two months later would cost a staggering $ 999. This was the highest price ever for an iPhone, which liked the original device launched in 2007 (but in all fairness requires a minimum length of carrier contract).
Fortunately, such a shock is unlikely this year. Here's what to expect:
8 Price: How Much You Pay
Ming Chi-Kuo, a former KGI Securities analyst with a strong overview of accurate predictions, has detailed Apple's likely selection:
- 6.1 LCD Model for $ 699 . This is the same price as the current 4.7 "LCD iPhone 8.
- 5.8-inch OLED Model for $ 899 . This is $ 100 more than the current 5.5-inch LCD iPhone 8 Plus, but it's $ 100 less than the current 5.8-inch OLED iPhone X.
- 6.5-inch OLED Model for $ 999 . This is the same price as the current 5.8-inch OLED iPhone X.
In particular, the 6.1-inch model provides an attractive award for the technology offered. A report last month claimed that Apple has managed to include an LCD monitor in a relatively thin-fitting design, creating a 0.3-t chip that improves on the 0.4 t which is found in most phones , by reducing the display contacts from 4-4.5 mm down to just 2-2.5mm.
Be sure to keep track of the used market prices if you want to sell your old phone. Analysis from uSell found that old iPhones lost about five percent of the value one week after the next device was launched and dropped 20 percent in week four.
iPhone 2018 Release Date
Apple has released its latest more flagship phones on the second week of September, released in the second half of the month. A leak from the German side Macerkopf claims that pre-orders will take place on September 14th, indicating that the phones will start two days before. Earlier reports indicate that the 6.1-inch model could start in October because of the new LCD chip.
Everyone will probably be revealed soon.
