Leaks suggest Apple's entry-level phone may be named iPhone XC

Share

Three days before Apple is expected to announce this year's new iPhones, a new report claims the cheapest of the expected trio of new releases might not be as easy to come by on launch day. The iPhone XS is going to be an upgrade of the existing iPhone X and continue to retain the same 5.8-inch OLED display.

Along with a giant display, this phone could also get a new name with a recent leak revealing Apple may ditch the usual Plus branding in favour of calling the Max.

The consensus expectation is that the new LCD iPhone will be priced between US$699 and US$749, Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall wrote Friday in a note to investors. The XS Plus was rumoured to have been called the iPhone XS Max and is expected to have a 6.5 inch OLED screen.

The iPhone XS is set to be the "headline" product, the smaller (and easier to hold) 5.8-inch handset that still chucks in all the top-end technology. As expected, the three new iPhones will come with Apple A12 chipset under the hood, but the amount of RAM is still a mystery. When it comes to the iPhone XC, Ben Gaskin tweeted some pictures on its profile showing some white, red, and blue prototypes.
