Top Apple analyst sees 100 million 6.1-inch LCD equipped iPhone units shipped this year

According to Kuo, the third model will carry a 6.1-inch LCD screen and have only one camera on back. This could be the Apple iPhone 9. Expected to be the lowest priced phone among the trio, Kuo told KGI clients that he expects Apple to sell 100 million units of this model in 2018 alone. With a price in the range of $700 to $800, this device could generate up to $80 billion in revenue alone over the last 6 months of this year.
Kuo is calling for the iPhone 9 to outsell the new iPhone units carrying an OLED display. The analyst says that he expects the 6.1-inch iPhone to account for 50% of new handsets that Apple will deliver during the second half of this year.
The record for most iPhone sales made in one quarter was set in Apple's fiscal first quarter of 2017. During that three month period, Apple sold 78.29 million units of its iconic smartphone.

So no 3D touch. No finger print scanner. A lower resolution LCD screen with a larger physical display. Also which SoC will it come with? An A11 or A12? Yet they call $700 to $800 lower priced for a new iPhone.

That was one of the rumours for the 6.1 model. Maybe just a rumour though, like some are predicting metal back and others are saying glass.If they all guess at everything i suppose one of them will get it right.

I'm the best Apple analyst in this Universum and I predicts that Apple goies bankrupt in 2018. But of course as analyst I have right to change mine mind as many times as I wanted. As Ming-Chi Kuo did every time he predicted wrong.

I am very happy with my galaxy s8 but if apple really switches to the new design for the regular iPhones and offers a fingerprint reader I could imagine to switch back to iPhone.

I don't know about Iphone users, they always complaint about high screen devices, know they cry for bigger screens, I don't like Iphone because the software is two restricted, even to open the camera I need to input the apple Id and that's annoying. Sorry but of apple lineup the Iphone is the last device I would purchase.

You do realize that your Apple ID is your email and password, right? You really think that anyone is going to believe that you have to put in your email and password just to use the camera on an iPhone? Dude, you just proved that you don’t own, and have never used, an iPhone.
