Apple is Releasing Three New Phones
You don’t have to get used to a four-digit price tag cause Apple just made it a whole lot cheaper.
Last year, Apple introduced the iPhone 8, the iPhone 8 plus, and the much sought after iPhone X with a price tag of $1,000. However, for those that can’t afford the phone or think the price is way too steep for technology that includes an OLED screen, facial recognition, and a 4k camera, the company will now make it possible for you to purchase its high-end products.
Apple, which is already running production tests with suppliers, is expected to announce a lineup of three new phones this coming fall. One of them to include the same technology the X includes, but at a more reasonable price. Code-named “D33,” this huge smartphone would use the same OLED and Face ID technology as the iPhone X. It will still have an edge-to-edge screen and Face ID, but will use “LCD screen technology similar to the type employed in the iPhone 8″ and have “aluminum edges and a glass back” to keep costs down according to Bloomberg Technology.
With the new releases, Apple wants to appeal to the growing number of consumers who want the multitasking attributes of so-called phablets (or huge Samsung phone) while also catering to those looking for a more affordable version of the iPhone X. Despite months of anticipation, the iPhone X has not done so well in projected numbers selling 77.3 million in the final quarter of 2017, below analysts’ projections of 80.2 million units. With its next lineup, Apple is seeking to rekindle sales by offering a model for everyone.
Still, with this cheaper iPhone X model, consumers are speculating it might be similar to the iPhone 5C model which Apple discontinued because for just $100 more people could purchase a 5s which had an aluminum body, a slow-motion video camera, and a fingerprint scanner. As more news unfolds about these next models, we will keep you updated.
