The 6.1-inch LCD model of the iPhone, which does not feature a name at the moment carries a huge level of hype, which is surprising because the higher-end models are supposed to carry that wave of momentum.
According to the latest info, the price of this version is going to be present in the premium smartphone bracket, but that does not mean the device will not be able to accumulate a large number of shipments in 2018.
KGI Securities Analyst Reports That Shipments of the 6.1-Inch LCD iPhone Could Reach as High as 115 Million Units
According to Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities, the 6.1-inch handset is expected to be priced between $699 and $799. Though this is certainly an expensive price tag for a smartphone, the analyst claims that he sees shipments going as high as 115 million units and that too for this model only. Now since this device is going to feature a bezel-less display but with an LCD panel, it could mean that the remaining two models are going to be more expensive than the iPhone X.
Kuo also believes the 6.1-inch iPhone will account for about 50 percent of new models set to ship in the second half of 2018. This could probably be because, despite the impressive run of the $999-priced iPhone X, lots of buyers believe that the device is overly priced. With better hardware and a potentially better battery life, the unnamed iPhone with the 6.1-inch LCD display could outsell the remaining two devices that are expected to get announced this year.
This model is expected to feature 3GB of RAM, though it might be shipped without 3D Touch functionality. It has also been reported that Apple is planning to use a non-stacked motherboard and a cheaper rectangular-shaped battery. This smartphone could also be rocking the same notch as the iPhone X, which is why it could be carrying a cheaper price tag than the remaining two handsets slated to be released this year.
