Concepts imagine colorful 6.1-inch LCD iPhone models
Ahead of the release of the heavily rumored 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, new colorful concepts from Apple Hub offer a glimpse at what to expect from Apple’s “budget” iPhone, expected to arrive in Blue, Orange, Taupe, Yellow, Silver, and Space Gray.
Matching numerous reports that claim to share details surrounding the forthcoming device, the concepts depict an iPhone designed very similarly to the current iPhone X, featuring a stunning all-screen design, with a simplistic glass backing and front facing notch to house Apple’s True Depth Camera System which powers Face ID. Unlike the current version of the iPhone X, the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone is believed to feature only one single rear camera, something inherited from the iPhone 8.
The Apple Hub‘s renders show the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone in Blue, Orange, Taupe, Yellow, Silver, and Space Gray, all colors expected to launch in September when Apple takes to the stage to announce all three iPhone models forming their 2018 iPhone line-up.
Last month profound leaker Benjamin Geskin shared what he claims are dummy units of Apple’s upcoming iPhone X Plus & 6.1-inch LCD iPhone models. Dummy units are usually produced based on leaks and chassis design schematics from Apple’s asian supply chain. The images shared didn’t come with any surprises, with the iPhone X Plus dummy closely matching the current iPhone X, and the 6.1-inch unit showing a device with slightly larger bezels for the LCD panel.
The 6.1-inch LCD iPhone is expected to be priced between $600 – $800.
The Wall Street Journal is expecting the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone to lead iPhone sales in 2018. Some reports have claimed that the new iPhone may not support 3D Touch to help keep production costs down, in return helping Apple reduce the retail price of the handset.
