IPhone X In Blush Gold Color Could Be Coming Soon

IPhone X In Blush Gold Color Could Be Coming Soon

This could be an indication for Apple fans to expect a price drop from the massive $999 price point of the iPhone X that was launched past year.

Apple may or may not pass on this cost savings to consumers, who now have to pay a hefty $999 for the 2017 iPhone X. Lin predicts it will, positioning the device as the cheapest of the trio, followed by the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone and the 6.45-inch OLED iPhone X Plus. When it launched back in 2017, the iPhone X bill of materials cost was more than $400, but the bill of the iPhone 5.85-inch model will be even lesser.

While there's no further official word from the company, one may regard this news with a pinch of salt. If Apple were to pass on that savings to customers, the next iPhone X could cost about $900 instead of $999.

According to a report in Digitimes, research into the supply chain has suggested that Apple has managed to secure a 10% reduction in the cost of key components, meaning the expense of actually making the phone will be cheaper. Among the releases will be the largest iPhone ever, an upgrade of the iPhone X and an affordable device.

Regardless, with three smartphones planned for this year, Apple will need to offer at least one with a cheaper price tag that appeals to budget shoppers.

Apple has long made aesthetics a key part of its design, and adding a new color option for the iPhone X would certainly fall in this category.

Another Digitimes report from Monday claimed Taiwan's display panel industry is anticipating orders for approximately 110 to 130 million OLED panels destined for the iPhone X and other future iPhones in 2018, and ordering between 250 and 270 million display panels overall across the year.

It is alleged some "recent engineering samples" for the model in question have "adopted components with lower-level specifications or lower capacities" than the 6.1-inch LCD variant, including reduced memory, helping Lin's claim it will be the value proposition of the trio.

Of course, this is all speculation right now. Apple has not confirmed any of the 2018 devices but several rumors have revealed that the company has big plans.
