2018 LCD iPhone Could Cost $600-$700, Feature iPhone X Look with Single Camera
Apple will unveil three different iPhone models later this year, and one of them is expected to be a more affordable version coming with an LCD screen.
Top-rated Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released a new forecast about this particular configuration, claiming that there’s a good chance it’s going to be priced between $600 and $700. Production hasn’t started, Kuo said, but it’s projected to kick off soon in order to get the device ready for the September launch.
One particular challenge is the design of the LCD iPhone. Apple wants this model to share the look of the iPhone X with an edge-to-edge screen despite using LCD instead of OLED, and this is believed to be more difficult for suppliers. But the analyst expects production to be on track for a September unveiling.
