Apple launches cheaper next generation iPhones: Paying less for the latest iPhone models may become a reality when Apple launches its next generation of iPhones, say insiders.
While the iPhone X, with an eye-watering price tag of $1000, has been one of the most successful models to date, it seems Apple are now watching the competition from cheaper brands, and creating more affordable smartphones.
According to the latest leaks, Apple will launch three new iPhones this September, and all of them will feature the notch design. The largest iPhone will be 6.1 inch LCD display which will reportedly be retailing for far less than the lagtest iPhone X models. Much has also been written and speculated about the iPhone SE 2.
Economy iPhones from Apple could well be in response to competition from the Asian markets – and the latest smartphones from Sony, LG and Google. Huwawei in particular has demonstrated its formidable position in the market place with the P Smart rivalling the Samsung S8 in functionality and camera power, and selling up a storm in previously held iPhone markets.
Apple has also listened to the market users and will apparently ensure that their next generation iPhone X models (iPhone X Plus etc) will be a lot more affordable than previous handsets.
But don’t count on getting anything too bargain basement, because although the latest economy iPhone models will have LCD rather than OLED screens to lower cost, the prices tags won’t dip below $700 for a new iPhone – premium brands always have premium price tags.
Indeed, some lesser known brands (Huwawei) are now creating phones that are demanding premium prices too – for example, the Honor Play hit the marketplace earlier this month ( June 2018) and boasts a 6.30-inch display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 2340 pixels.
It also has 4GB RAM, a 16 megapixel primary camera, internal storage that can be expanded from 64GB to 256GB. Of course, it’s Android, so if you are a die-hard Apple advocate, you’ll just have to watch and wait for the new economy iPhone offering set to be released this September 2018, where the new iPhone X (6.1 inch screen) is rumoured to be retailing at $550.
