New Version Of The iPhone X (2018) With A Bigger Screen Might Cost Just $699

As we have the Apple’s iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus pricing alongside the iPhone X smartphones. According to the new report, the 2018 variant of the iPhone X is said to start at $699, which was iPhone 8’s price when it launched last year. Here are the details you need to know about.

The comments made during yesterday’s shareholder meeting by Apple CEO Tim Cook, the iPhone X has a customer satisfaction rating of 99%. Unfortunately, he didn’t explain on exactly where that figure came from, though, it’s safe to say that Apple’s tenth-anniversary iPhone is a hit with Apple fans.


However, the iPhone X released in 2017 is by far the most impressive iPhone Apple has ever made it available, both in terms of power and design. The glass and stainless steel housing are stunning, and the “notched” OLED display tends that at least a half-dozen Android phone makers have already begun to replicate or copy.

Even Samsung is rumored to be working on iPhone X-like Animoji feature for its next-generation Galaxy S9 and S9+ handsets. If the iPhone X is so great, why doesn’t Apple fan have one?

Why buy the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus instead? The answer is very simple. One of which is many people don’t want to lose Touch ID, which has relatively been replaced on the iPhone X by Apple’s often-fickle Face ID solution. The second reason is the price, plain and simple. In fact, Apple’s 2018 iPhone models aren’t expected to bring back Touch ID, but this report from the world’s top Apple insider says that the problem of price will indeed be addressed.

If not, iPhone X is among those first in a new breed of ultra-premium, ultra high-priced smartphones. It’s built using premium materials, packed full of premium technology, and of course, it’s priced at $1,000 and up.

Meanwhile, the iPhone 8 starts at just $699 despite offering nearly identical performance and features of iPhone X. The reason for the price discrepancy is fairly obvious; the iPhone 8 costs far less because it doesn’t feature the same premium materials and components. It doesn’t actually have the iPhone X’s pricey OLED display, it’s made of aluminum rather than stainless steel and finally, it doesn’t have several expensive internal components from the iPhone X like the dual-lens camera, additional RAM, a stacked board, or an L-shaped battery setup.

In 2018, Apple will apparently drag its least expensive flagship iPhone into the future. In regards, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo offered new details on the third new iPhone X successor Apple supposedly plans to release this year.

In addition to the new version of the 5.8-inch iPhone X, Kuo says a larger Plus model will be released with a 6.5-inch OLED display. On top of that, he also reported that Apple will release a third new model to lower the cost of entry to its modernized iPhone lineup. Instead, the third model will feature the same almost-all-screen design as two OLED models, but it will feature a “notched” 6.1-inch LCD screen and less expensive components.

For iOS users, Kuo added one more important detail to the puzzle. The price: According to him, the 6.1-inch successor to iPhone X Apple releases this coming September could also start at just $700, in line with the current iPhone 8. Despite having a larger display than the sequel to the iPhone X, the 6.1-inch version will definitely have an LCD screen rather than of OLED, an aluminum mid-frame instead of stainless steel, less RAM, a smaller battery (not L-shaped), and a conventional non-stacked SLP. It also won’t be going to support 3D Touch, according to Kuo. Also expecting Apple to ship 100 million 6.1-inch iPhone units this year.

All three of the new iPhone (2018) models covered in Kuo’s note on Wednesday morning is expected to be released in September. Stay tuned for more updates!
