1-Inch LCD Model Could Cost As Low As $550

As global handset profits dipped 1 per cent (year-on-year) in the fourth quarter of 2017, Apple X alone generated 35 per cent of the total handset industry profits, helping the iPhone maker grow 1 per cent (YoY) in the same quarter, a new report said on Tuesday.

The 6.1-inch LCD iPhone rumors point to it being a cheaper version of the iPhone X, but it may have one feature that no other iPhone has had to date: dual-SIM support.

Samsung is said to manufacture around 200 million OLED panels this year, out of which 100 million panels will be bought by Apple for the iPhone X and its successor due for launch this year. If the 6.1" LCD iPhone comes with DSDS and single-SIM models, we believe it will result in two benefits: "(1) more price segments would be created, significantly boosting shipments via the low-price single-SIM model.

Not everyone should expect a dual-SIM iPhone in their country. Now, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities says that this model could be priced as low as $550 (Rs 36,000 approximately) when it gets announced in September.

But he has its 'full support'
While Fox News higher-ups aren't concerned about the conflict of interest, a regular guest on Hannity's show is. He only has three clients and apparently he works for free. "What else haven't you been telling us?"

DSDS iPhones, which will support dual-LTE support, should help Apple sell more iPhones in China where dual-SIM handsets are really popular.

Apple's older generation iPhones, iPhone 7 and iPhone 6 still generate more profit than some of the more recent Android flagships from key Chinese OEMs.

Kuo has also revealed in a note to investors that Apple may launch the 6.1 inch LCD iPhone in two variants.

According to Taiwanese tech site, Economic Daily News, the iPhone 11 price will stick to the $999 tab.

APPLE COULD LAUNCH its second-gen iPhone SE handset as soon as next month, a regulatory filing has suggested.

Apple's iPhone X smartphone, which was unveiled in September past year, is hugely profitable and accounted for 35pc of total smartphone industry profits in Q4, 2017. This is a big deal, since no iPhone has ever had space for 2 SIM cards.

Dual-SIM phones can also be helpful for roaming, where you might leave a second SIM in your phone for travel. It doesn't just stop here, the leaderboard is dominated by eight iPhone models including the age-old iPhone SE.

With the possibility of new flagships out of the way, the EEC model numbers may correspond to new iPhone SE devices. Consomac speculates that Apple might be planning to launch a refreshed iPhone SE 2. Notably, the iPhone X 2 and iPhone 11 (X Plus) will stick to the more expensive OLED display while the X SE will have the cheaper LED screen. Apple sold lesser number of iPhones in the last quarter of 2017 compared to the same quarter in its previous years.
