The iPhone X seems to be triumphing all over the world, but Apple knows perfectly that the barrier of its high price prevents it from selling more than it is doing right now. And seeing the rumors about how the range of iPhone next year will be, since Nikkei added reliability to the possibility of a 6.1-inch model with LCD screen.
We could baptize this phone as the 'iPhone Xc', since apparently it would become a cheaper alternative to the most complete and advanced iPhone. It would have a metal back shell, so it would not include wireless charging, and it would sell in various colors. All that, together with the LCD screen, would allow a cheaper iPhone to be sold.
2018 as the end of the era of iPhone with frames
What it would gain with that iPhone is the same 18: 9 screen format present in the iPhone X, and its size of 6.1 inches would make it even bigger than the iPhone 8 Plus in height. The other iPhone models that would be launched would be the continuation of the iPhone X in models of 5.8 and 6.2 or 6.3 inches, with OLED screen and a price similar to what we see with the current iPhone X.
There are still many months for these iPhone to present themselves to the world, but for now we can already think about the beginning of the end of the iPhone with frames and Touch ID sensor. The iPhone X has been a first step, but the invasion of the no-frames in Apple will arrive in 2018.
