April has brought us some juicy tidbits about Apple’s possible new products, from unreleased gold iPhone Xs to paid news subscriptions. This time around, we’re hearing about their soon-to-launch iPhones.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that Apple is set to launch a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone with a dual-SIM option. This is one of the two predicted 6.1-inch models mentioned in his investor note. The other 6.1-inch LCD phone is said to have a single SIM setup.

The previously mentioned phones is expected to be launched together with the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones. The former is believed to be a successor to the iPhone X and the latter, thought to be the iPhone X Plus.

The 6.1-inch LCD iPhones is believed to be priced very competitively, something that is entirely new to Apple. The single-sim version is expected to be priced at $550-$650 while the dual-SIM version would be pegged between $650-$750.


Despite its relatively low price compared to Apple’s usual products, the LCD iPhones are rumoured to come with the same specs as the iPhone X. This includes TrueDepth camera system to support Face ID, gesture controls and of course, edge-to-edge display (with the notch!).
