Later this year, Apple is expected to introduce a trio of new iPhone models, one of which could be just $550. If true, the device would be priced in a market typically occupied by OnePlus and other Chinese companies.
According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the 6.1-inch iPhone will feature an LCD display and support for dual-SIM technology. The device is also expected to feature a notch and Apple’s famed TrueDepth camera technology, which makes Face ID possible.
Kuo’s report builds on rumors we’ve heard about Apple releasing three iPhone models later this fall, including a 5.8-inch model with an OLED display and another with a 6.5-inch OLED panel. Both are expected to look like last year’s iPhone X.
While the price will be a huge draw, the 6.1-inch iPhone’s support for dual-SIM technology might be even more appealing, especially in overseas market. Additionally, Apple may introduce an even cheaper iPhone this summer, expected to be the iPhone SE 2, to compete against other low-end handsets.
Kuo believes the 6.1-inch model could be so popular that it may sell as many as 120 million units in just twelve months—and that’s just for one particular model.
If Apple does introduce three iPhone models this fall, we can expect screen sizes of 5.8 inches, 6.1 inches, and 6.5 inches, giving consumers plenty of choices.
