Apple mulls dual SIM variants of iPhone

Apple iphone x profit Q4 2017

The Cupertino based conglomerate is expected to launch a slew of iPhones this year which will include not just the successors to the three recently launched iPhones ( Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X) but also some dual-SIM variants. A new report now indicates that the 6.1-inch iPhone with the LCD display will be available in two SIM variants and price points.

The price of the dual SIM iPhone could range from $650 to $750.

iPhones that support dual SIM are 6.1-inch LCD variant and the top-end 6.5-inch OLED model while the smallest 5.8-inch OLED isn't expected to get a dual SIM option.

Kuo also shares the sales goals of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone.

So when Kuo says a 2018 iPhone with a 6.2-inch display could cost between $550 and $650, people take notice.

Earlier this year, Bloomberg reported that Apple was also considering dual-SIM functionality for the larger 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus. The device would have an iPhone X-like bezel-less design with a notch. He believes that a dual-SIM model could "help increase market share in China and commercial markets".

According to a report from Counterpoint Research, Apple's iPhone X accounted for 35 percent of the total worldwide smartphone profits int Q4 2017. The iPhone X's sky-high price is one of the reasons why sales stalled after the Christmas quarter.

According to Taiwanese tech site, Economic Daily News, the iPhone 11 price will stick to the $999 tab.

Considering Apple has never offered dual SIM card support in the past, it could spike the demand among customers, especially in European and Asian countries where switching between the two carriers is a popular practice. This leads many insiders to believe that these models could part of the iPhone SE 2 lineup.

The French news outlet predicts that a release might be impending for the "iPhone SE 2", an extraordinary low end model meant to supplant the present age iPhone SE, however an extensive number of new models proposes that something unordinary is going on. Pictured here is the original iPhone SE from 2016. Come this fall, one of the three new iPhone X successors that Apple is now working on might be priced as low as $550. Swiss National Bank now owns 19,248,516 shares of the iPhone maker's stock valued at $2,966,581,000 after buying an additional 79,100 shares during the period. "The iPhone X alone generated 21 per cent of total industry revenue and 35 per cent of total industry profits during the quarter", Research Analyst Karn Chauhan said in a statement.
