As usual, when we come close to a new iPhone release all the world goes bonkers, especially when Apple plans to release not just one, but 3 models later this year. Let’s see what is rumor and what is fact.
First, let’s talk about prices
The first existential iPhone question concerns money. Among the models projected to hit the stores later this year, the larger version of iPhone X is what draws attention. It could be called the iPhone X Plus and it is expected to cost quite a bit. On the other hand, Apple will release a less expensive version as well.
To have something to compare them too, look at how much iPhone X cost. The priciest iPhone ever, costing $999, it was the best-selling Apple product for the first quarter of 2018 as well. A cheaper version will for sure sell better, which may be good especially now when the product has lost a bit of its shine.
iPhones slower than Android?
According to Qualcomm, Apple plans to go with Intel for their processors and that would mean that Android would end up being faster. That’s because Qualcomm’s processors have done better at tests regarding downloading data, as opposed to Intel’s products.
When will they start shipping iPhones?
The three products will be launched this year. Two of them will feature OLED screens, while the remaining one will have an LCD display. The first two will hit the stores in September, while the cheaper, LCD one will arrive in October.
No iPhone 9
Some voices say that we should forget about an iPhone 9, instead, Apple is apparently focusing on reintroducing the S, resulting in iPhone XS. Another possibility would be iPhone 11 but what we can say for sure is that iPhone 9 won’t be happening, especially when we remember that after iPhone 8 and 8 Plus came the iPhone X.
