Next Generation iPhone X To Be Much Cheaper?

Ismael LynchMar 24, 2018

Last year, Apple reportedly invested millions of dollars on the development of LG screens; now, according to Bloomberg, the company is secretly developing its own technology for better displays.

The iPhone X successor is expected to feature the same 5.8-inch display as the model that was released back in 2017. This report is in-line with the earlier reports suggesting the price tag of 2018 iPhones starting from $749.

New iPads: Supposedly, Apple is working on an updated iPad Pro models which would borrow the Face ID technology that is found on iPhone X. However, it might be possible that these might not hit until later this year if they are at all launched in 2018.

The other products that you should not expect are the AirPower charge pad which was announced last September and it is yet not released, or the rumoured iPhone SE 2. The Korean company might be the only company that manufactures OLED screens for the iPhone, but these screens are made according to Apple's specifications.

That possibility may have caused Apple to launch two LCD iPhones and one OLED iPhone only this year.

Our most recent field checks indicate that build forecasts were cut once again this weekend, with the reductions primarily coming from the iPhone X family.

The report is based on supply chain sources and states that Apple is speeding up the trial production to continue with the delivery schedules of the upcoming iPhone models so that there would be available supply for pre-orders. While this could have led to price increments, the report claims that Apple has already reached an agreement with Samsung Display "with satisfactory terms".

Apple has acknowledged that sales for the iPhone 8 series and the iPhone X have been lower than expected, but its component orders for this year's iterations seems to show that the company hasn't yet lost its optimism towards future sales. The jump sized iPhone could have a 6.5-inch display and a resolution of 1242 x 2688 pixels.

One of the issues with the current iPhone X display - a flaw that's inherent to the iPhone X's display type - is that when the screen is viewed off-axis, there is a dramatic color shift. It wouldn't surprise me, then, to see Apple carry this pricing strategy over to the new iPhone models, especially since Apple appears to be reshaping its iPhone segmentation strategy to mirror the iPad's.
