KGI Confirms Apple Will Release Three iPhones This Year
More news about Apple’s 2018 iPhones has been released. According to the KGI securities analyst, Apple has plans on releasing a 5.8-inch OLED device just like the iPhone X and two other larger screened iPhones.
Word has it that Apple will unveil three iPhones for the year 2018, one 5.8-inch (458ppi) OLED device, one 6.1-inch (330ppi) LCD device and one 6.5-inch OLED device, which some people speculate will be called the iPhone X Plus.
A 9To5Mac report states that the 2018 lineup will replace the 2017 iPhone lineup, meaning that Apple could stop making the iPhone X when the new phones are released.
While some analyst believe that Apple will sell up to 30 million iPhone X units for the first quarter of 2018, KGI is expecting Apple to sell only 18 million units for the first quarter and only 13 million for the second quarter. After news of the 2018 iPhone models is released, KGI says Apple will have only sold 62 million iPhone X models which is lower than the 80 million previously expected.
“We believe the addition of 6.5-inch OLED and 6.1-inch LCD iPhone models will boost Apple’s market share in China, and that the US$650-750 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will make it easier for users worldwide to own a 3D sensing and full-screen design iPhone which offers an innovative user experience.”
