Chinese iPhone sellers reportedly cut prices following sales warning

Chinese iPhone sellers reportedly cut prices following sales warning

"People familiar with the matter" speaking to the Wall Street Journal have said that Apple plans to launch three iPhones in 2019, the highest end of which will have a triple-lens camera. And now that CES is over we have a report about this year's new iPhone series that seems to confirm the earlier leak, providing additional details about the iPhone XS and XR successors. The iPhone XS Max is the largest handset Apple has ever launched with a 6.5-inch screen.

Despite reports that there's some trouble in Apple's iPhone division, the tech giant is planning three new handsets this year, according to a new report.

The report adds that the cheapest model will stick with an LCD screen, while the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max will of course use OLED, just like the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

However, the cited source indicates that Apple will actually ditch LCD versions of the iPhone next year, so in the long term, the company only wants to offer OLED iPhones.

Apple has reportedly made a decision to stick with the LCD display on the XR until it brings out a new line in 2020, forsaking the OLED screens it reserves for its higher-end models.

The new iPhones will succeed the XR model that has shown sluggish demand, which according to Apple was due to weak sales in China. The other two iPhone models will be the direct successors to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max phones, revealed a report.

The new devices will be expected by shareholders to reverse the disappointing sales that led Apple to cut its sales outlook for the first time in nearly two decades on lower-than-anticipated demand in China and elsewhere. In the case of the iPhone XR follow-up, it means moving from one to two lenses.

With the exception of their haptics, Android smartphones meet and exceed Apple's smartphones on nearly front.
