Apple are expected to launch three new iPhone X handsets this year, one 5.8 inch model with an OLED display, one 6.5 inch model with an OLED display and a 6.1 inch model with an LCD display.
According to a recent report the new 2018 5.8 inch model of the iPhone X will be around 10% cheaper for Apple to manufacture than the current handset.
The current model has an estimated build cost of around $400, that means that the new model would cost Apple around $360 to manufacture. We wonder if this saving will be passed onto consumers or whether the OLED iPhones will start at $999 like the current device.
Apple’s new LCD iPhone X is expected to be their cheapest model out of the three handsets, this device is rumored to retail for around $700 or $800. We are expecting to see all of these three new iPhones sometime in September or October.
We previously heard the design of the handsets is expected to be similar to the current model, Apple will keep the notch this year, although they are rumored to be getting rid of it or making it smaller for their 2019 iPhones. This years handsets will get new processors and more RAM than the current iPhone, they are also expected to come with updated cameras.
As soon as we get some more information about the three new iPhone X handsets, we will let you guys know.
