So far, there are customers who still refuse to pay the price of the iPhone X (especially now that the VAT started in the UAE, ICYMI, the 64GB iPhone X now has a price of Dh4,304, whereas 256 GB will configure it again Dh4,965.50, of Dh4,099 and Dh4,729 previously).
Now, if really drools for Apple's latest high-tech flagship, but does not want to spend that much (or I do not like the idea of getting a 7 or 8), we have a suggestion: wait September, also the beginning of & # 39; New iPhone Season & # 39;
Ming Chi Kuo, the venerable and punctual technology advisor, recently distributed the latest on what the next iPhones would be. And since we start all this with an economic note, we will put the price in front and center here.
In terms of pricing, those with a & # 39; budget & # 39; They will be happy to know that we can expect an iPhone that is in the range of $ 700 to $ 800 (Dh2,571-Dh2,938, plus VAT, of course), lower than the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus prices. Those prices, however, are above Kuo's previous estimate of $ 649- $ 749.
And if you ask why it's like that, it's because the rumored iPhone is basically a simplified version of the iPhone X; although it would retain some of the characteristics of the X, such as Face ID, the Kuo report, according to MacRumors, says it would have several lower specifications, such as an LCD screen with 320-330ppi (compared to the OLED of the X and 458ppi) , a single lens camera without 3D Touch.
Here's Kuo's report in part:
"Two new OLED models are targeting the high-end market, the new TFT-LCD model targets low and mid-range markets: we believe The main difference in hardware in the two new models OLED is the size, in an attempt to meet the diverse needs of the high-end market.The new TFT-LCD model will differ significantly from the OLED models in hardware and design specifications (for example, the PPI will be lower The main selling points of the TFT-LCD model can be the innovative user experience of an integrated full screen design and 3D detection with a lower price (we expect it to be US $ 649-749). "
It is also not clear if the 6.1-inch iPhone will have a glass or aluminum back; if it comes with the last one, then the wireless charge is out.
And, of course, that's just one of that; As we all know so far, we can expect that three iPhones will be released later this year.
The second iPhone in 2018 – which we can consider as the direct successor of the iPhone X – will come with essentially the same things such as a 5.8-inch screen, a 458ppi camera and two lenses.
The third is for those who love really big smartphones: it is said to have a large 6.5-inch OLED screen (& # 39; iPhone X Plus & # 39 ;?), 480 -500ppi, and other high-end things what should we expect from the next generation iPhone X, such as an improved battery and better cameras (how about four lenses, huh Apple?).
So, basically, we're looking at an updated iPhone X plus a bigger and smaller brother with it. The most important thing is that you will not have to go bankrupt (or sell your kidneys) to be able to buy the latest iPhone when it is presented.
Meanwhile, Apple announced that four new Animojis will reach the iPhone X with iOS 11.3, including a dragon, a lion, a bear and a skull.
Oh, that skull is adorable!
These will join the current list of monkey, robot, cat, dog, alien, fox, pig, panda, rabbit, chicken, unicorn and everyone's favorite poop.
Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke has already shared her favorite among the new Animoji on her Instagram account … and why should not we be surprised that Daenerys chose the dragon?
Apple recently announced the seed developer of iOS 11.3, with consumer availability arriving later this spring.
