Apple is planning to launch three new iPhones this year and
they are all going to be borrowing design elements from the current gen iPhone
X, according to famous Apple leakster and KGI Securities’ analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. All of what you are going
to be reading next, comes from MacRumors and
is backed up by ET News from Korea.
There will apparently be an iPhone X (2nd Gen),
iPhone X Plus and an iPhone X SE. The 2nd Gen iPhone X will be exactly
the same as the current one in terms of display and form factor, but with more
updated specs. The iPhone X Plus will sport a much larger 6.5-inch display, but
the rest of the internals will probably match the iPhone X (2nd gen).
The iPhone X SE will serve possibly as a low-end device in the middle with its
6.1-inch display. The batterie on these three devices are expected to be 2800mAh,
3,400mAh and 2,950mAh for the iPhone X, iPhone X Plus and the iPhone X SE
If you think that the iPhone SE sounds perfect, you would be
unpleasantly surprised because despite sporting the same form factor as its
more premium brothers, it won’t have an OLED display, 3D Touch or even the dual
camera setup. The already ridiculously expensive Apple phones are going to become
even more expensive in 2018 with the iPhone X starting at $1,000 and the iPhone
X Plus from $1,200 possibly. The “cheap” iPhone X will start at $700 – $800 in
all likelihood. If you thought Samsung flagships were getting expensive, it’s
time to rethink the situation!
