  • OLED screen production for 2018 iPhone releases expected to start in May

While the LCD 2018 iPhones will ship with the option for dual SIM, Kuo also confirmed reports that the 6.5-inch OLED model, too, will come with the same flexibility, but not the 5.8-inch iPhone X.

Apple launched its anniversary edition iPhone X past year and raised many eyebrows for its expensive price tag.

According to Kuo's earlier investor notes, Apple iPhone X series for 2018 will have three variants: a new 5.8-inch iPhone X with OLED display and a bigger iPhone X Plus with a 6.5-inch display with an OLED display as well. Not many people would think about carrying two phones just to use two numbers for different occasions so why not let a cheaper iPhone do the same thing by giving it a dual-SIM feature?

The note, which was first spotted by 9to5Mac also claims that the single SIM variant of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone is expected to arrive with a price tag between $550 to $650. The dual-SIM model has been rumored for sometime especially for markets like India and China where data connections are cheaper and consumers tend to have two mobile connections.

It seems Apple might be thinking of releasing 2 versions of the 6.1-inch iPhone.

Kuo also predicts that Apple could sell between 100 million and 120 million units of 6.1 inch LCD iPhone between third quarter of 2018 an 2019.

Apple Music for journalism? Apple plans paid subscription service for news
Apple has had limited success with its news services applications. Apple did not respond to request a comment on the report . Texture previously had about 100 staff members.

While officially unconfirmed by Apple, both the lack of a price increase in the 2018 iPhone range, and its abandoning of the numerical naming convention make sense to us here at T3. That means, there is a high chance that some of these could be the successor to the iPhone SE which hasn't been updated since its launch back in 2016.

The Apple iPhone X has been the most profitable smartphone, with Apple's iPhone 8 on the second spot with 19.1 percent, followed by iPhone 8 Plus with 15.2 percent profit share. Apple might be able to tap a new customer base by a dual SIM device. It could be priced at $650 to $750 (roughly Rs 42770 to Rs 49350), much lower than the current iPhone X's $999 rate (approx Rs 65730). Consomac speculates that Apple might be planning to launch a refreshed iPhone SE 2.

A new filing at the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) database lists 11 different variants of a mystery device running iOS 11, and all signs are pointing to the iPhone SE 2.

The filing shows that the ECC has already given the all-clear for a number of new iPhone models to go on sale.

If you thought we'd seen the last of the iPhone SE, don't be so sure. The device is unlikely to get the Face ID, Animoji, or wireless charging features.

I'm still not buying the idea of the iPhone SE receiving a completely redesigned sequel especially considering the little smartphone's objective.
