On July 29th, Ben Geskin, a well-known insider in the mobile phone circle, broke the two machine models of Apple's 2018 new iPhone, including the 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus and the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone.
In the past few years, almost every new iPhone has been leaked from the factory before it was released. This seems to be a tradition, and the appearance of the general model will always be two or three months ahead of the official release in September. In addition, machine models are often leaked from our China supply chain, which are basically based on certain schematics. Some parts manufacturers design new products accordingly. At the moment, both models are more in line with the details that are known to me.
According to previous rumors, Apple is expected to launch two flagship OLED iphones this year, measuring 5.8 inches and 6.5 inches respectively. In the leaked model photo, the iPhone X Plus model has the same design language as the current iPhone X, such as a dual-lens rear camera designed in the same vertical direction.
Some unconfirmed reports have said that the 6.5-inch iPhone may use a three-lens rear camera, but this is actually a rumor for the 2019 iPhone. The possibility of taking the last three shots this year is very small, no accident. It should be the same as the model.
Another 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, which is a slightly lower-end device than the OLED iPhone model, also has some features of the iPhone X from the model, especially the 3D face recognition feature ID, but the screen The border is also slightly wider. The key point is that in order to reduce costs, Apple has made concessions in many aspects, or has shrunk. For example, the most obvious is the rear camera with only a single lens.
The cost of the 6.1-inch iPhone is said to be very strict, because Apple is also planning to cut off the 3D Touch pressure-sensitive touch function, while the fuselage frame is changed from stainless steel to aluminum. But in order to be more popular, Apple has added some selling points for it, first of all, colorful color matching, including red, blue, orange, gray and white, and then there may be dual card dual standby function for the Chinese market, dual card implementation. Similar to Apple Watch.
Some analysts believe that the price of a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone is between $600 and $700, and some analysts believe that the price is between $700 and $800. The pricing is similar to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The iPhone X Plus is expected to be priced at $999, which is the same price as the current iPhone X, while the new 5.8-inch iPhone X is down to $899.
