Apple to release three iPhone X-like devices in 2018, says analyst


  • Dimitri

    Makes sense. They will drop the 8S and just continue with the X models only from now on.. So next year be prepared to not see a home button again.

    The X is starting to grow on me. However my 8 Plus will do until next year for another upgrade!

    Held and played with an X today for a little, was OK but didn’t blow me away by any stretch of the imagination. IMHO definitely not worth $1300+ and up, no where near.

    No, not an Apple haters as have several “i” devices in our household which we really like but sorry, these prices are totally insane for what you get.

    “Inexpensive smartphone” at around $900. What’s next year’s expensive going to cost.

    • Elky64

      Your “remaining” extremities LOL.

      Can only hope the future holds room for capable sub-$500-$600 phones as I’m done buying into these pricing trends, IMO shear lunacy.

    Second Gen iPhone X would pique interest. Hopefully, they will get all the kinks out.

    I would have guessed one would be a small special edition version

    Inexpensive in Apples eyes means expensive to the rest of the world.

    Btw I cross multipled 6.1×1334/4.7 to get a resolution of 1732 for the 6.1″ LCD iPhone.

    This also kind of confirms what the rest of the OEMs have been doing for years. Smartphones the size of the iPhone SE are dead. Plus the 4.7″ iPhones are dead as well. Look if other OEMs can currently put a 6.4″ display into a smartphone that is roughly the size of an iPhone 8 plus. Then that means Apple has to follow suit as well.

    Apple really needs to start upping their game instead of relying on more iPhones to keep their business model going. The company is seriously lacking in the innovation and originality department and if this is Tim Cook’s idea of moving the business forward I fear for the shareholders in the longer run.
    Where are some new products from these guys? It’s been 7 years with the iPad’s introduction since a truly original product line was brought forward. Everything else has just been a copy of others.
