Apple is setting high expectations for its iPhone models launching later this year, according to The Bell.
Between the three models expected, the Cupertino-based company reportedly believes it’ll ship nearly 100 million units.
The largest model, often referred to as the iPhone X Plus, might see as many as 45 million units shipped. It’ll have a 6.5-inch OLED screen, but the edge-to-edge display will keep its overall size down. So the larger-than-usual screen shouldn’t be a problem for Apple. The Plus-branded models have been popular in the past anyway.
As for the 5.8-inch model replacing the current iPhone X, Apple thinks it can ship 25 million units. Then there’s the 6.1-inch model with an LCD screen, which the report puts at 30 million units shipped globally.
It’s somewhat puzzling, though, because just last week we heard the LCD-toting model would be the top seller. Apple is using an inferior display technology to keep the price down.
There could also be a much smaller iPhone debuting alongside the trio. Apple’s been rumored to be working on the iPhone SE 2, but we still haven’t seen anything official. The iPhone SE 2 could turn out to be a surprise during the hardware-focused event in the fall.
As usual, we’ll have to wait to get a better idea of what’s in the pipeline. It’s pretty much guaranteed that three new iPhone models will be launched, so the specifications and pricing remain the big unknowns.
