Análisis iPhone 8 Plus, el momento de los nuevos retos.
The iPhone X ordered by the first owners are just arriving and we already have one of the first rumors about the 2018 handsets. From the hand of the already known Ming-Chi Kuo writing for KGI Securities, Apple would be preparing a 6.1 and 6.5 inch iPhone X for 2018, in addition to the current size of 5.8 inches. Kuo’s research is interesting but has some controversial points.
According to the note obtained by MacRumors, Apple would be preparing three new models of iPhone X for 2018. The first would be an update of the current iPhone X, with which we could say traditional internal components increase. The other two models would be of 6.1 inches and LCD screen and one of 6.5 inches with OLED screen. The final scheme would look like this, where all the devices would keep the design of the iPhone X:
- 5.8-inch iPhone with OLED screen.
- 6.1-inch iPhone with LCD screen.
- 6.5-inch iPhone with OLED screen.
The LCD model, Kuo speculates, would have a lower price of between $649 and $749 , so it would take the place of the current iPhone 8. The choice of LCD technology would have its reason to be able to reach that price point, since it would have a resolution of between 320 and 330 ppi (the same resolution that the iPhone 8, iPhone SE and other models since the iPhone 4 have). For the rest of the model it has not provided any price range.
If this type of diagonal is confirmed, it would be the end of the road for terminals of contained size. As is the case with the 4.7-inch iPhone 8 or the iPhone SE. A 6.5-inch iPhone would be similar in size to the current iPhone 8 Plus, but with a diagonal with an additional inch . Similar to the render I imagined for an iPhone X Plus we saw a few days ago.
A 6.1-inch iPhone X with a price tag similar to that of the iPhone 8 would be a good candidate to push the user towards terminals with larger screens.
