Apple iPhone X's 2018 edition's pricing allegedly leaked

Apple iPhone

This could be an indication for Apple fans to expect a price drop from the massive $999 price point of the iPhone X that was launched previous year.

But, according to new information, its successor could be launched with a comparatively cheaper price tag.

The report also added that, due to a weak demand of the iPhone X, Apple took fewer OLED panels from Samsung Display, which resulted in "more bargaining chips" for the latter in negotiations for the manufacturing of 2018 iPhone. A new report is claiming that Apple will enter trial production of its 2018 iPhones in the second quarter. This means that the customers can expect a price drop when compared to the a year ago launched iPhone X.

As per Digitimes Research Senior Analyst, Luke Lin, the current iPhone X has a MBOM over US$400. All three devices, however, are expected to sport iPhone X-like design.

Apple is reportedly gearing up to launch this forthcoming model sometime in September, and will feature a 6.2-inch OLED display, the biggest thus far for any iPhone product. So by the end of the year, we will have two OLED iPhones, one 5.85 inches and the other 6.45 inches. "However, the project was shut mid-February and maybe eventually terminated". The initial plan for Apple was to use LCD panels in the 5.8-inch iPhone as well but the reduction in MBOM has allowed Apple to use OLED panels, said the report. According to Lin, Apple has made a deal with Samsung Display that could prevent the cost increases, at least from the panel side.

Phone manufacturers tweak screens to their specifications, and Apple has for years calibrated iPhone screens for color accuracy.

Apple Inc is designing and producing its own device displays for the first time, using a secret manufacturing facility near its California headquarters to make small numbers of the screens for testing purposes, people familiar with the situation said. The iPhone-maker now sources OLED panels from Samsung Display for the iPhone X. Now a new report has surfaced online suggesting price of the 5.8-inch variant. The third option, meanwhile, will have an edge-to-edge display and Face ID similar to the iPhone X but with an LCD display and aluminum edges. This shows that there's room for Apple to improve - and, frankly, improve dramatically - on this relatively annoying aspect of the iPhone X in future models.

It will be interesting to see if the rumored iPhone X SE 2 turns out to be the same iPhone that Lin claimed could be the cheapest of the three iPhones.
