Apple Likely to Launch 3 New iPhones on September 12

As we’re nearing the end of August, everyone’s eyes are now on Apple, which has been launching new iPhones in September every year for quite some time. Like the last couple of years, Apple is reportedly planning to launch three new smartphones- iPhone 9, iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Plus on September 12, according to a new report. “If the rumours are legit, the iPhone 9 will be Apple’s ‘entry-level’ offering and will pack an iPhone X like 6.1-inch LCD screen with room up top for Face ID,” the Inquirer reported on Tuesday.


“The iPhone 11 and 11 Plus also referred to as the iPhone X2 and iPhone X Plus will sport 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED displays, respectively, with rumours, also pointing to souped-up camera setups, an upgraded 7nm A11 CPU, and a brand new USB-C charger,” the report added.

The report also said that iPhone 9 will be the most-affordable smartphone by Apple in 2018. According to market research firm TrendForce, Apple’s 2018 iPhones will offer Apple Pencil support and up to 512GB built-in storage, the report said. It’s unclear whether these features, similar to those found on Samsung’s newly-launched Galaxy Note 9, will be available on all three incoming iPhones or reserved for Apple’s higher-end OLED models.

These OLED models will be more expensive than the “budget” 6.1-inch LCD iPhone 9, which Trendforce expects to have a starting price of around $699 to $749. The iPhone X (2018) and iPhone X Plus will have starting prices of $899 to $949 and $999, respectively, according to the research firm.

The report confirms that the two OLED models are already assembled, while assembly of the budget LCD model will begin in mid-September, in line with the smartphones’ rumoured September and October release dates, respectively. Last year’s iPhones were unveiled on September 15 and went on sale in the following week on September 22. The iPhone X was made available for purchase at the end of November 2017, but this year, all the three phones are expected to go on sale at the same time.

In other news, Apple is reworking its operations in India because the Cupertino giant has lost its place in the Indian premium smartphone segment, which is now owned by OnePlus.
