IPhone 9 may be Apple’s most expensive iPhone yet

Share

The 6.1-inch LCD iPhone 9 would cost the same as last year's iPhone 8. The large 6.5-inch iPhone and the mid-sized 5.8-inch phone will both be called the iPhone XS and both have an OLED screen, according to 9to5 Mac, which reported on the new devices based on leaked images. However, it turns out that might not be the case after all. Now we've got more details on the iPhone 9 and iPhone Xs Max.

If you want to get your first glimpse of the new gadgets (and aren't one of the folks lucky enough to attend the event in Cupertino), following the action from home is easy. Apple iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and a 6.1-inch iPhone with LCD display are expected at the launch event.

This year though, Apple is widely expected to release a 5.8-inch iPhone XS, a 6.1-inch iPhone 9, and a mystery 6.5-inch (name is still unknown).

Apple has given their customers a way to check their iPhone's eligibility. Unfortunately, other than the name, this report doesn't include any additional information just yet.

Although rumours are swirling about the forthcoming iPhone announcement, Apple fans will not have to wait long to see what the official word from the tech giant is. This makes it sound similar to the iPhone 5C, right down to the colorful paint jobs in red, orange, white, blue, and gray. The leaked images have revealed that there will be a Gold color edition this time, unlike iPhone X.

Next Wednesday, Apple will be holding its annual event where the firm will announce new iPhones. The iPhone Xs will be priced the same as the iPhone 8 Plus was a year ago, and the iPhone Xs Max will command the same premium as the iPhone X did in 2017.

To be a little more specific, Apple is said to be planning two iPhone X follow ups. The rear panel of the 6.1-inch iPhone will feature a glass panel and will house the camera setup. Also with the current dollar-rupee currency fluctuation and the rupee continuing to fall against the U.S. dollar, Apple is likely to stick with a higher pricing in India when it launches the iPhone Xs series here.

Apple will add a custom avatar creator in iOS 12 for iPhone X users called Memoji.

Going by previous reports, Apple will be revealing three new iPhones this year, out of which one will come with an LCD display. Still, it has to remain competitive with its biggest rivals, even if most phone makers are struggling to compete at any price point in the US.

Aside from the new iPhones, Apple may also unveil a refreshed entry-level MacBook, new iPad Pros and next-gen Apple Watches with larger screens.
