Apple’s new Phone may be Available for $550 to $650.

Last year, Apple launched iPhone X, its most advanced and most expensive smartphone till the date. iPhone X featured a full-face display screen and face recognition sensors in front of the camera, the front sensors added to the security of the device.

However, customers had to pay a hefty amount of $1,000 for this device; Apple's iPhone models have great demand in the smartphone market, but the heavy price tag is certainly a setback that affects its sales.

Recently, images of a supposedly cheaper iPhone model emerged on the web, some claimed it to be an inside job of some Apple employee because the photograph seemed to have been taken from a production line in some Apple manufacturing unit.

Adding to these rumors, some reliable sources also backed this information, KGI Securities, Bloomberg and Wall Street Journal also reported about a new cheaper iPhone model that might be available in markets from September 2018, onwards.

Apple always releases their new iPhone model in September each year, different sources also claimed that it would be priced somewhere around $ 550, that is half of what customers pay for iPhone X at present.

According to Business Insider, the new cheaper iPhone may be available in two different models, the single Sim model for $ 550 and dual Sim model priced at $ 650. Along with this cheaper version, Apple will also launch a larger-sized iPhone X, and an updated version of current iPhone X model. So, in total, we can expect three new models of the iPhone to be released by Apple this coming September. The large sized iPhone X may have a display screen of 6.5 inches and might be priced at around $1100.

Apple has always been very secretive about its future projects, so we can only find out if the information is true or false when Apple announces their new products themselves, for the last six years, Apple has always launched their new products in September month during each year.

The cheaper iPhone model might come with 6.1-inch LCD screen, currently, they use OLED screens, which are very expensive as compared to LCD, the new iPhone is expected to contain a new Apple chipset, and it may lack some features that are part of their expensive models. It may have a powerful rear camera, but at the given price tag, Apple can’t provide features like double lens design, which are included in iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus.

According to market analysts at KGI Securities, if Apple does release such a new model, it may account for 65 to 75 percent of their all over iPhone sales. Dual Sim support in iPhones has been in demand for a long time; such an iPhone model with lower price will attract a lot of new customers, especially in Asian countries.
