IPhone Xc 6.1-inch LCD iPhone might have a nasty surprise

  • Apple’s new iPhones could come with dual SIM support

Along with China Mobile's tongue-in-cheek illustration, China Telecom also has an ad showing a photo of a new iPhone with dual SIM cards. But if you thought the names "iPhone XS" and "iPhone XS Max" were already cringe-worthy, the colorful "iPhone Xc" might have something to upset hopefuls more than just its name.

According to reports, Apple is shifting its focus to iPhones with bigger screens to get more profit.

Elaborating on the features of the iPhone XR, the report states that its screen size will be roughly 6.1-inches and feature an LCD display as opposed to an OLED panel. The jump up from the 5.5-inch display on the iPhone 8 Plus to a 6.5-inch display is more than enough to justify a new name.

Firstly, we will soon find out what Apple has in store for its new devices within a matter of days and once these have been revealed older iPhones could drop in price even further. It brings some weight to the fact that Apple is committing to the iPhone X moniker for a significant time in the future.

The report cites "minor complications fitting backlights for the LCD screen, according to people familiar with the matter" as the main reason there might not be enough of the new low-priced iPhone at first.


However, South Africans can expect these prices to be much higher than the recommended retail price when they go on sale here due to shipping and taxes.

A image posted on Chinese website Weibo, spotted by Tech Carving, gives us a look at what is an alleged promotional poster from telecom operator China Telecom. 9to5Mac thinks the logic here is that the letter "R" comes before the letter 'S.' This is apparently going to be the brand's confusing way of telling customers that the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone is a step lower than the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone Xs.

There is also rumored to be a more affordable iPhone (hopefully bezel-less) that will be replacing the 8 and 8 Plus, and act as Apple's new entry-level model. The poster shows an iPhone model with a dual-SIM tray popping out. "While the three iPhones will have nearly non-existent bezels like the iPhone X, the 6.1-inch iPhone's bezels may be slightly thicker due to the LCD display instead of the OLED display".

Apple has scheduled a Special Event on September 12th in Cupertino, California. The company recently released a cheaper version of the iPad in March for £319, and before that a refreshed second-generation version of iPad Pro in June previous year. "Now Mark Gurman believes that Apple will name the 6.1" 2018 iPhone as the iPhone Xr. Apple switching to USB-C on its iPad Pro lineup will definitely be a big deal, though for now, its a piece of info that is very hard to digest.
