Trusted analyst says 6.1-inch iPhone could be surprisingly cheap

Trusted analyst says 6.1-inch iPhone could be surprisingly cheap

According to a report by Kuo of KGI Securities, the California based company will offer dual-SIM variants of two of the three iPhones. It should be noted that earlier Bloomberg had reported that 6.5-inch OLED iPhone will come with dual-SIM features. This is the first time Apple will deploy dual-SIM technology in iPhones and at this price, it has the potential to be a game changer. Let us know on our Facebook page and stay tuned to for more news. Three different iPhone models including the iPhone X OLED edition, iPhone X Plus and another cheaper model with LCD display will get launched in September. The single SIM model is expected to be priced between $550 (approx Rs. 36,190) and $650 (approx Rs. 42,770) and the dual-SIM model priced between $650 ( approx Rs 36,190) and $750 (approx Rs. 49,350). Supporting Bloomberg's claim, Kuo noted that the dual-SIM support could also be added to the iPhone X Plus.

Getting iPhone X features without paying iPhone X prices sounds like a pipe dream, but Apple is said to be planning just that at almost half its flagship phone's price. This means the LCD model will have two physical SIM card slots and won't adopt the eSIM standard. "He also predicts that 6.1" LCD iPhone could clock sales up to 65-75% of the total iPhone shipments from Q3 2018 to Q3 2019. Plans for a second version of the LCD iPhone are said to exist with a single-SIM solution for other countries, likely where carriers exert more control.

The 2017 report said the iPhone SE 2 would be manufactured exclusively by Taiwanese manufacturer Wistron, and that it would be powered by Apple's A10 Fusion chip alongside 2GB of RAM and up to 128GB of local storage.

Apple is going to release a completely new line-up of its cheaper iPhone model, iPhone SE.

#TwitterDown: Twitter was down for a number of users across the globe
In the Down Detector website, which tracks services when they go offline, many users from Mumbai to NY were reporting outage. As reported , Twitter stopped working in the United States, parts of Europe including the United Kingdom and Japan.

Interestingly, there are also reports that Apple is working on several iPhone models and have registered those model numbers with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), a Russian-language regulatory organisation.

The filing shows that the ECC has already given the all-clear for a number of new iPhone models to go on sale.

Apple and Samsung flagship models, lead in terms of profits as compared to other OEMs.

The iPhone SE now packs a 4-inch Retina display, A9 processor and a 12 megapixel rear camera and can be picked up for under £350. In the event that a follow-up launched, he stated, it would include just minor changes, for example, a speedier processor and lower cost, yet wouldn't include remote charging or 3D detecting for Face ID.
