Regarding the new iPhone this year, all of them have previously stated that there are three versions, including 5.8-inch, 6.5-inch OLED models and 6.1-inch LCD models. However, today Guo Mingyi announced an investor note that the 6.1-inch LCD model actually includes two versions, one of which is a common single-card version, and the other is the long-awaited dual-card dual-standby version!
Guo Mingxi believes that the pricing for the dual-card dual standby version of the iPhone may remain between 650 and 750 US dollars previously speculated, to cover the iPhone 8's pricing market. The single-card cell phone will be cheaper, between $550 and $650. Obviously, the 6.1-inch LCD model will offer many advantages if it has the dual-card dual-standby function:1. The price of a single card version is even lower. According to the news, Apple did not make any sense to lower the price of the OLED version of the iPhone. However, an LCD version may be “uncertain” in the entry market, so the price of the two units is equal to that of the single card version. Price as low as $ 550 can give Apple more confidence in the entry market;
2. The dual-card dual-standby model will help increase the market share in China. The demand for dual-card dual-standby for Chinese users is very strong.
This Investor's note does not mention OLED models, but Guo Mingkai believes that the dual SIM dual standby function will also appear in 6.5-inch OLED models, and the price of two mobile phones equipped with OLED screens may be more than 1,000 US dollars.
So dual card dual standby reality? Guo Mingyao said that Apple will use Intel's XMM 7560 and Qualcomm's Snapdragon X20 modem to increase network speed, while supporting dual-card dual standby. And we do not rush to refute, although Apple has refused to put two slots in the body, but with the Apple Watch Series 3 eSIM card function landing, iPhone can also use this technology to achieve a single card slot dual card dual To be functional, this does not violate the principles that Apple has always had.
Finally, Guo Mingyao said that because the 6.1-inch version will use the dual-card dual standby function, mass production will be postponed for one month, and the Apple supply chain will begin to usher in a golden period at the end of 2018, because the 6.1-inch full-screen iPhone is not only The price is cheap, also supports dual card dual standby, which can significantly increase the shipment volume. It is expected that between the third quarter of 2018 and the third quarter of 2019, two 6.1-inch iPhones will account for 65% to 75% of the iPhone's total shipments, which is much more than the previous forecast of 50%.
At the same time, he also believes that the 6.5-inch and 6.1-inch models are controlled separately in the ultra-high-end and entry-level markets, so the 5.8-inch iPhone X2 will be pre-cooled this year.
