IPhone alert: Apple fans can expect colourful changes

Apple introduced the "unapologetically plastic" iPhone 5c five years ago in green, blue, yellow, pink, and white to boost sales and visibility of the handset, so it wouldn't be a complete departure to do the same thing this year.

Apple has, much like its design of the iPhone, stuck to its traditional hues.

. Thus, with regards to the budget 6.1-inch iPhone, it appears that Apple is set to add a few dashes of blue, red, and orange to its lineup.

The 6.5-inch iPhone 2018 model is likely to be priced around $1,000 and will feature dual SIM capabilities, according to a key analyst associated with Taiwanese business group KGI Securities.

The new gold option for the higher-end iPhone models is also an intriguing tidbit. There was supposed to be a gold iPhone X, according to an FCC filing from September 2017, but it never happened. It looks like Apple will finally bring back the gold iPhone with the upcoming premium models.

Kuo expects a burst of demand for the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones at launch from early adopters of the device. "Specifically, we believe the combination of ongoing Services momentum (which we believe to be structural) and the introduction of a lower-ASP [average-selling-price] LCD-based iPhone X (upon the September launch of iPhone X Version 2, or Xv2) can provide tailwind to both revenue and iPhone X units that wasn't present for the iPhone Xv1 launch", Baruah wrote.

The non-bending LCD screen in the 6.1-inch iPhone X may not be able to offer this so we could see a larger chin bezel at the bottom of the handset than is shown in these render images. That too came in a variety of colors, but it was not as strong a seller as Apple had hoped, and the model was discontinued soon after its release. The 5.8-inch OLED iPhone will be an upgraded iPhone X, the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone will function as the iPhone X Plus, and the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will be a budget iPhone X.
