KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is again in the news today for a new investor note in which he has offered additional details about what Apple might launch this year. The analyst suggests that the rumoured 6.1-inch Apple iPhone with an LCD display which is supposed to launch this year will be priced as low as $550. He also suggests that this iPhone will be available in a dual-SIM variant. The phone is supposed to launch in two different variants. One with a standard single SIM slot, and another with a dual SIM slot, offering dual-SIM standby mode. This also means that the 2018 iPhone may not feature eSIM support.

According to Kuo, Apple may price the single SIM variant of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone between $550 - $650 and the dual SIM variant might get a price tag between $650 - $750. Kuo also added that the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone X will also use dual SIM technology, but the same may not be made available on the 5.8-inch OLED variant of the iPhone X which is also supposed to launch this year. According to him, the dual-SIM variant of the phones will help increase Apple’s market share in China and other commercial markets.

To recap, Apple is rumoured to announce three new iPhone this year. The 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display along with the two-second gen iPhone X phones offering 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch displays. According to Kuo, the 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display will be the most popular iPhone next year. 

Apple’s is also reportedly working on making older iPhones in India and the company may start producing the iPhone 6S in India. This may lower the price of the phone. The phone is expected to manufacture in the Wistron factory in Bengaluru.
