Apple reportedly may release a 6.1-inch iPhone without 3D Touch

Apple reportedly may release a 6.1-inch iPhone without 3D Touch

When it was launched, the $1,000-plus iPhone X was touted by Apple as "the future of the smartphone". MCF Advisors LLC's holdings in Apple were worth $2,060,000 at the end of the most recent reporting period.

After releasing the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X in 2017, Apple will reconfigure its lineup with three new models, according to reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Recall that usually cupertinos the company offers one model of smartphone for several years, reducing its price after the release of a new device.

This prediction adds to a list previous statements given by Kuo regarding Apple's next move in the industry. Best understood as the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Plus, the new iPhones are expected to use 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED screens with Super Retina resolutions of over 450 PPI.

According to Kuo, Apple will discontinue the first-gen iPhone X when the second-generation version of the device launches later this year.

In contrast, the analyst predicts, Apple is targeting a $700-800 price tag for the 6.1-inch iPhone.

A new report by Canalys further noted that "Adoption was driven by upgrade demand in operator-centric markets, where Apple's installed base is high and customers can finance the cost of handsets over many months". While all of the current display manufacturing for the iPhone X is done by Samsung, the report notes that the 6.1-inch LCD "thin-film" display will be manufactured by JDI. Older models, like the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 7, are being bought by those who feel that they have discovered value for the money paid. The iPhone 8 accounted for more than 20 percent of sales, while the iPhone 8 Plus accounted for more than 15 percent, and the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus each made up more than 10 percent.

The iPhone X, Apple's $1,000 pride and joy at the moment might possibly share the same fate as the iPhone 5C if this leak pans out.

Indeed, the iPhone X will spawn not one but two high-end models, it's believed.

Canalys says the 29M units are slightly below expectations likely due to the initial supply constraints and splitting the launch with the iPhone 8 and iPhone X.
