New iPhones May Support Dual SIM Cards

China Mobile says the iPhone XC

China Mobile says the iPhone XC

If it's not broken, don't fix it. Apple is sticking to its habit of presenting its latest generation of iPhones in the month of September.

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is expected to release three new iPhones total, including two devices with OLED screens. The iPhones are going to be called the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus and the iPhone XC. Chinese business newspaper Economic Daily News disagrees, saying the iPhone XC will have it.

The two OLED phones will come in different sizes - 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch - and will have the same almost full-screen display and facial recognition camera as the iPhone X.

An image appeared on China Mobile's Facebook page last week with text which read "New iPhone coming soon, dual SIM support, I've been waiting for you".

The report cites "minor complications fitting backlights for the LCD screen, according to people familiar with the matter" as the main reason there might not be enough of the new low-priced iPhone at first.




Finally Apple will probably update both its iPad Pro models with a new edge-to-edge display that will see both tablets ditch the Touch ID fingerprint sensor for the iPhone X's Face ID facial recognition system.

A large chunk of Wednesday's proceedings will nearly surely focus on three expected additions to the iPhone line, Apple's most important and one that accounted for 56% of its $53.3 billion in third-quarter revenue for the three months ending June 30.

Several information leaks suggest the new devices will feature an upgraded iPhone X, an iPhone X with a larger screen, and a more price-sensitive device that will have all the features of the iPhone 8 but look like the iPhone X.

As usual, rumours on Apple's new iPhones started approximately 10 minutes after the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X were launched previous year. The phone is also expected to be powered by the A12 processor. Thought to be the upcoming iPhone Xc, this could be the cheapest of the iPhones that are announced this week and will be available in red, white and blue variants. The second SIM slot could also be an available option for the markets where they need them like India and China. Sources claim that bigger iPhone XS Plus will help Apple boost sales performance this year. The Apple Watch Series 4 is expected to come with an edge-to-edge display with bigger screen size.
