Apple's 2018 iPhones get price points and 'specs highlights' tipped by respected analysts
It’s almost time to welcome three new iPhones to an increasingly crowded and competitive high-end mobile device arena, but even though we’ve known their screen technology and sizes for quite some time now, a number of essential details have stayed under wraps.

If we choose to believe the latest speculative report released by market research firm TrendForce, the starting prices of Apple’s next-gen iPhones will range from $699 to $999.
The most affordable model is expected to come with a 6.1-inch LCD screen, Face ID support, dual SIM functionality, and the same 3GB RAM as the iPhone X. This unnamed “entry-level” variant is estimated to cost between $699 and $749 with 64GB storage, offering a maximum of 256 gigs of local digital hoarding room at an unspecified higher price.

Meanwhile, both the 5.8 and 6.5-inch AMOLED 2018 iPhone versions should pack 4 gigs of memory, as well as up to 512GB internal storage space, obviously also supporting 3D facial recognition only.


TrendForce’s analysts can’t decide whether the 5.8-incher will start at $899 or $949, with the jumbo-sized model described as “limited within US$1,000 threshold as to encourage purchasing from consumers.” So, no, the iPhone XS Plus (still an unconfirmed name) is not expected to break the psychological $999 barrier, although that unsurprisingly means the original X will “start its end of life process earlier due to the high similarity in the specs” of its follow-up efforts.

One very interesting nugget of purported inside information is an Apple Pencil “option” that may or may not be in the cards, while the dual SIM support of the 6.5-inch 2018 iPhone could be restricted to “certain regions” only.

Despite LCD assembly reportedly eyeing a mid-September start, “all three models are expected to be shipped in September and October as previously scheduled”, according to TrendForce’s sources. But of course, nothing’s set in stone yet.
