On Wednesday, we schooled a lot about Apple’s large tumble hardware lineup. But a new fact about a company’s arriving “budget iPhone X” has flush today.
If we haven’t been following the latest iPhone rumors, Apple is approaching to launch 3 new models this September. One will be a inheritor to a iPhone X during 5.8 inches, another will approaching be a 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus and a third will be a 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display.
There’s some discuss over what a 6.1-inch iPhone will cost. Initial rumors suggested a cost tab between $700 and $800, though some reports say the cost could be as low as $550, generally if Apple positions this handset as a deputy for a iPhone SE.
A new news from DigiTimes, citing “industry sources,” claims that a 6.1-inch device will have bottom bezels of usually 2 to 2.5 mm. Previously, it was believed that this cheaper LCD arrangement would need a 4 to 4.5mm bottom bezel.
For context, a iPhone X has bottom bezels of around 4 millimeters. Other phones, such as Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and a Essential Phone, can competition bottom bezels between 7 and 10 millimeters.
Apple can appreciate a new “0.3 LED Chip” for a decreased cost. These chips are smaller than a “0.4t LED Chips,” that other LCD smartphones use, and that have large-enough connectors to need bezels of during slightest 0.4mm.
The news records that a cheaper chips might scapegoat “accuracy and stability,” though if Apple can make a new phone demeanour only like a reward iPhone X, that might not matter too most to customers.
We’ll know some-more come Sep when Apple is approaching to launch this LCD iPhone along with the Apple Watch 4.
