iPhones in 2018 will be a real game-changing device for both Apple as well as the consumers. Read below to know how.
Well, we all have been hearing rumors about the iPhones which we might see in 2018. We have been hearing those even before the Phone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus had even launched. Hence, based on those rumors, 2018 can be thought to be an exciting and stunning year for new iPhones and the die-hard iPhone users.
AN INTRODUCTION TO iPhones in 2018.
In 2018, the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, ‘Apple’ is planning to implement and launch 3 different iPhones. The initial one is said to be a second-generation a version of the iPhone X, with the same 5.8-inch OLED display with the notch design. However, the second one can be thought of as an ‘iPhone X Plus’ with a larger 6.5-inch OLED display.
Well, the prices of these two OLED iPhones are subjected to be almost as high as the current iPhone X. Also, Apple is planning to announce a new, more economical 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display. Indeed, this device could possibly use a Full Active LCD display, which might not be as good as the iPhone X but will be pretty good and will give a good user experience.
All the new iPhones including these three new iPhones in 2018 will have a screen aspect ratio of 19.5:9, with the same nearly non-existent slanting edge of the iPhone X. The new phone will all be equipped with a True Depth sensing camera system that supports Face ID recognition. This means that 2018 will mark the official end of the Home button and the Touch ID fingerprint sensor in the Apple phones.
iPhones in 2018 Naming System
Well, at this point in time we do not have any idea about what Apple is going to call the three iPhones which will be releasing in 2018. In 2017, we had seen real good phones like the iPhone
8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone X (pronounced as iPhone 10) skipping the iPhone 9 entirely. Hence, based on 2017’s naming scheme, the names of the iPhones in 2018 are a bit unpredictable.
Apple may introduce iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Plus, which would be similar in naming scheme as compared to previous years for the second-year updates. Hence with the manufacturing of the iPhones in 2018 and the introduction of the larger 6.5-inch OLED display, iPhone will be showcasing a huge upgraded. We can’t predict what might be coming up in the near future. Apple might even choose the names to be iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Plus, or iPhone XI and iPhone XI Plus. But, it is still pretty unpredictable what the company would be planning to call the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone.
1. BATTERY TECHNOLOGY
According to most of the studies and researches, it has been rumored that Apple will continue to use a two-cell L-shaped design for the batteries in the 5.8 and 6.5-inch iPhones coming in 2018. Battery life in the 5.8-inch model may or may not be similar to battery life in the current iPhone X. But, talking about the larger 6.5-inch iPhone, it will be having more space and will feature up to 25 percent more battery capacity, somewhere around 3300 to 3400 mAh.
2. Face ID and True Depth Camera System
According to some rumors, it looks like 2018 will be the year in which the Apple will going to turn all of its smartphones to Face ID. There have been rumors suggesting that all 2018 iPhone models will have an additional feature of an edge-to-edge display and a front-facing TrueDepth camera module with support and backup for Face ID.
Thus, Face ID would then officially and globally replace Touch ID as Apple’s biometric security method of choice across all devices. Rumors also have suggested Face ID integration in other devices like the iPad Pro.
3. DISPLAY 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch
The 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones in 2018 will be going to released soon. With all the bells and whistles of the iPhone X, Apple is going to rid of some features from the rumored 6.1-inch model to keep costs low and hence to increase the affordability of the device. Moreover, the device will have an aluminum frame instead of a stainless steel frame. Also, it will not come equipped with the wireless charging support. It is also said to have a single lens-rear camera too, and the display may not support 3D Touch as well.
Well according to the information available from sources, Apple’s 2018 iPhone might come in multiple colors, with the OLED devices available in Silver, Space Gray, and Gold. On the other hand, the 6.1-inch iPhone might be available in colors that include grey, white, blue, red, and orange. Hence, this will be going to be the first large-scale production establishment.
4. Production, Pricing, and Release Date
The information from the German carriers says that pre-orders for the iPhone will be starting on Friday, September 14. This means that an announcement can be expected earlier in the week, perhaps on September 11 or 12. Following the September 14 pre-orders, newly announced iPhones of 2018 are likely to see a launch on Friday, September 21.
Apple investigator “Ming-Chi Kuo” believes that Apple will use an intrusive pricing strategy for its 2018 iPhone lineup. With all three iPhones launching in September. 6.5-inch OLED device will be priced at $900 to $1,000. The 5.8-inch OLED iPhone X will be priced at $800 to $900. And lastly, the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will be priced at $600 to $700 approximately.
What we feel
We, at CEOandTrends, feel that this strategic plan might be able to achieve the biggest success in the market. One main concern for people who love IoS is the high price of the Apple phones. But if they are able to really launch an iPhone at an affordable price, this might actually skyrocket their sales. If that happens, there will be no surprise if, within 3-5 years. Apple is found to be surpassing the global leader in smartphone sales, Samsung.
