Apple’s 6.1-Inch LCD iPhone 9 Might be Released in New Color Variants This Coming October
The tech company Apple is indeed pushing forward to the launching of the 2018 iPhones. The company is known to be conservative with the colors ever since the current iPhone 6 got introduced in 2014. Now, recent reports suggest that the long-rumored 6.1-inch LCD iPhone 9 will offer new color variants.
According to Apple Insider, the Japan-based blog website Macotakara cited a prediction by the supply chain sources that the colors might be similar to the current leather iPhone cases. They have a mixed track record making this prediction a bit questionable.
Meanwhile, the popular TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that the rumored device will be shipped in new colors—gray, electronic blue, bright orange, gold, red, and white. These colors agree with the Macotakara report, except the taupe, black, and flash yellow.
Just so you will know, the iPhone 5c was released in 2013 with a truly diverse set of colors. These alternate colors came out easily because of the plastic shell. However, a mix of glass and metal is expected to compose the upcoming 2018 iPhones.
Alongside the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone 9 that is predicted to cost around $600 to $700, the two other iPhones coming this year are the 5.8-inch OLED model will cost around $800 to $900 and the 6.5-inch OLED model for $999. All of these devices will have edge-to-edge displays and feature the TrueDepth cameras for animoji and Face ID.
The other two options are not likely to come in a variety of colors. The company might stick to the usual muted colors since these will be the more expensive models to be unveiled this year. Both devices are already expected to be released this September. Meanwhile, the low-cost LCD variant may not go on sale until October, which is believed to be because of the production delays.
