We have heard lots of rumors about the new 6.1 inch LCD iPhone X, the handset is said to be the cheapest of Apple’s three new iPhone handsets this year.
Previous rumors have suggested that the new cheaper iPhone X would cost between $700 and $800, according to a recent report by analysts TrendForce the handset could retail for $699.
Apple will also release two OLED models of the iPhone X, one with a 5.8 inch display and the other with a 6.5 inch display, these devices will be more expensive.
For the budget 6.1-inch LCD version, it will come with Face ID, Dual-SIM function, and a larger screen than its predecessor iPhone 8. The specs upgrades would make new iPhones more favorable in the competition with Android phones. On the other hand, the cost of this model has been approaching that of iPhone 8 Plus due to the upgrades. However, the 6.1-inch LCD model would be positioned by Apple’s main product this year, with a production share of around 50% in the new iPhone series. Apple is bound to adjust the prices of this model to meet the market expectation and to further expand its market share. Considering the cost reduction of components, TrendForce estimates the starting price of this LCD version at around $699~749.
Prices for the OLED models could start at $899 for the 5.8 inch version and $999 for the 6.5 inch model. Apple are expected to release all three of their new iPhones some time in September, although some rumors have suggested that we may have to wait until October for the LCD iPhone X.
