The new iPhone might start at $550, come with Dual-Sim

According to Ming Chi Kuo, the price of the single SIM variant would be somewhere around $550 to $650, whereas the dual-SIM variant would be around $650 to $750. Dual-SIM phones are popular in developing markets, including countries in Africa, South America and parts of Asia and aren't typically more expensive than their single SIM counterparts.

Apple is also expected to come up with two OLED iPhones this year.

Apple will be releasing two other Iphoens as well, both will be OLED enabled and be based on the iPhone X template and come in at 5.8 inches and 6.5 inches.

The OLED phones will very likely be significantly more expensive than the LCD models. It could prove a pretty useful feature in China where users often swap cellular providers between provinces.

The low-priced 6.1-inch iPhone with LCD display will apparently be available in a selection of metal back finishes unlike the iPhone X which is only available in Space Gray or Silver. That's hardly a budget price, but for an iPhone with a big screen, it's reasonable compared to the $1,000+ range where the now iPhone X sits.

It is predicted that Apple will not just be offering successors for its 3 most recent iPhone models.

According to French website Consomac, a new Russian-language regulatory filing in the EEC database has emerged that gives details of several unreleased iPhones that the tech giant could be launching soon. Further, the report noting that the sales of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X have been less than expected, claims that the trial production would help the company to stick to the 2018 delivery schedules, thus maintaining the smartphone momentum. The two OLED phones will come with a screen size of 5.8 inches and 6.5 inches.

The investor note suggests Apple could sell between 100 million and 120 million units between the third quarter of 2018 and the third quarter of 2019.

This means that with the 2018 iPhones, there are no more Home Buttons.
