KGI: 6.1-inch LCD iPhone could be priced at $550 – rumored to feature dual SIM configuration

Rumors about upcoming iPhones has been rounding up already and a new report from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities suggests that the 6.1 inch LCD iPhone from this year could come up with Dual SIM configurations and cost only $550.

Additionally, Kuo’s note also explains that there could be two model of 6.1 inch LCD iPhone: one with single sim support and another with dual SIM configuration.

The price for upcoming LCD iPhones are as low as $550. According to KGI, the single SIM model could be available for between $550 and $650 & the other Dual SIM model could sell for between $650 and $750.

“6.1” LCD iPhone may have model that supports DSDS. If the 6.1″ LCD iPhone comes with DSDS and single-SIM models, we believe it will result in two benefits: (1) more price segments would be created, significantly boosting shipments via the low-price single-SIM model. For instance, if the DSDS model sells for US$650-750, the single-SIM model may sell for US$550-650; and (2) the DSDS model will help increase market share in China and commercial markets.”

Kuo also predicts that Apple could sell between 100 million and 120 million units of 6.1 inch LCD iPhone between third quarter of 2018 an 2019.

Apple is rumored to launch three new iPhone models in 2018: 5.8 inch iPhone X refresh, 6.1 inch LCD model and the other 6.5 inch iPhone X Plus OLED model.
