Apple’s radically redesigned iPhone X only comes in Space Grey and Silver options. When the device got announced last year many fans were disappointed to learn that despite rumors and alleged leaks the device won’t be offered in a gold finish. Things may turn out to be very different this year however, as it is now rumored that Apple could offer the next generation iPhone models in a variety of colors.
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is expected to launch an entry-level iPhone with a 6.1-inch LCD display in grey, blue, white, orange and red colors. The premium 6.5-inch iPhone (also dubbed as iPhone X Plus) with an OLED display is rumored to be offered in black, white and a gold finish.
Kuo also offered his predictions for the prices these devices will be offered in. He claims that 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will be available at a price of $700. Despite having an LCD display this device will have an iPhone X like design complete with an edge-to-edge display and quite possibly a notch to include Face ID. Interestingly a dual camera system with Portrait mode capabilities is not expected on this device.
The higher-end model with OLED display will be available at a price of around $1000. This is same as iPhone X however this device will have a larger 6.5-inch screen as opposed to iPhone X’s 5.8-inches. This device is also rumored to have dual SIM capabilities in order to target business users.
Despite introducing 2 new sizes of iPhone, Apple is not expected to ‘kill’ the 5.8-inch iPhone X. It is expected that the company will introduce a device resembling size and design of the iPhone X but with upgraded specifications matching other 2019 models. It may also be offered in the missing gold finish. (Via)
