Apple could offer new color options for the 2018 iPhone lineup
There is another report claiming that Apple will expand the color options for the iPhone lineup this year.
According to TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will come in “grey, white, blue, red and orange”. If “grey” and “white” refer to the current space grey and silver options, it means that Apple is bringing three new color options to the table at launch. It remains unclear if "red" also refers to the PRODUCT(RED) edition of the iPhone that Apple will unveil in March for the past two years.
Rosenblatt analyst Jun Zhang reported in May that he believed Apple would introduce the 6.1-inch iPhone in multiple bright colors to set it apart from the OLED models and appeal to a younger consumer segment.
As for the 6.5-inchiPhone model, Kuo believes Apple will introduce a “gold” option this year. The iPhone X was previously rumoured to come in a gold option and was recently seen in FCC photos, but Apple reportedly could not release it due to production issues.
Kuo also estimated the 6.5-inch iPhone model to be priced at U$1,000 and come with support for dual SIM cards. Bloomberg also reported about the dual-SIM feature earlier this year.
