Analyst Tips Apple’s Biggest Phone—With One of its Smallest Price Tags

Just when you thought the iPhone rumor mill had run dry, KGI Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo revealed a new, cheaper handset.

The trusted analyst this week hinted at a next-gen Apple device, expected to cost $550 for a massive 6.1-inch screen.

That’s the same price as 2015’s iPhone 6s Plus, but with a larger LCD display—plus a number of Apple’s latest specs, including a TrueDepth camera  and edge-to-edge screen.

The unnamed gadget (iPhone 9? iPhone 8 Plus Plus?) is Cupertino’s attempt to “increase market share in China,” where the tech titan competes with homegrown firms Huawei and ZTE, Kuo said, as reported by The Sun.

A budget handset, meanwhile, could help offset sluggish sales of the iPhone X, which, despite its high-tech specs, has become a $999 lemon (which has loads of useful features you may not have noticed).

Neither Kuo nor Apple immediately responded to Geek’s request for comment.

The anniversary iDevice may get a second wind, though. Earlier this year, whispers of three new variants began swirling. Details are, of course, scant, but the speculation is convincing.

First up is the expected upgrade to the existing iPhone X: a more powerful A12 processor, iOS 12, and maybe a new color—an iPhone Xs, if you will. The middling option would swap the OLED screen for LCD and steel parts for aluminum, reducing quality as well as price—let’s call this the iPhone Xc.

The most drastic change would come in the form of, um … the iPhone XL? Reports tipped a bigger, bezel-free body (weighing in around 6.5 inches) and 2,688-by-1,242 resolution, as well as improve face-scanning tech and a split-screen mode.

We can speculate until we’re blue in the face (and trust me, we will). But nothing will be confirmed (officially, at least) until Apple’s next unveiling—probably in September.

Until then, start saving.

Because the proceedings can take several years, Ireland has appointed investment managers, whose task will be to maintain the disputed funds from depreciation. This is to be achieved at the expense of investment solutions with low risk.

The Ministry of Finance of Ireland said that his appeal got priority and passes through the various stages of a private written proceedings in the Main court of the European Union (GCEU), the second largest court in Europe. Meanwhile, the European Commission intends to cancel the claim against the Republic of Ireland, initiated last year due to delays with the refund.
