IPhone XC could be the name of Apple’s new entry level handset

  • 6 gadgets Apple may launch on September 12

Yesterday China Mobile presentation slide was leaked which revealed that the upcoming 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will be called 'iPhone XC" while the bigger 6.5-inch variant will be called "iPhone XS Plus'. They'd also have 1GB more RAM and higher battery capacities.

Now, it looks like we have some fresh details about Apple's cheapest, 6.1-inch iPhone.

Just two days to go before Apple unveils the most awaited smartphones of 2018, yet tipsters have been trying their best to gather information on the upcoming products.

There's a super-sized price coming along with it as well though - the iPhone XS Max is likely to cost €1149 in Europe, which is, well, loads. Not only will it be providing a more colorful selection on a "budget" version of a flagship iPhone, it will also be reusing that "c" suffix, which now definitely stands for "color". Since the "X" stands for 10, rather than the letter in Apple's official naming, an XS would mirror similar "S" phones such as the iPhone 4S, 5S and 6S, rather than standing for iPhone "extra small" or "excess".

He told ESPN: "I think Nike is trying to get out ahead of it and trying to do something special , and I think they've done that". Airbnb: Ran ad against US President Donald Trump's anti-immigrant policies and dubbing Haiti, El Salvador and Africa "s**thole".

However, the third handset could be a slightly cheaper alternative that's now believed to be called the "iPhone XC".

The iPhone XC, on the other hand, is tipped to use an LCD screen instead of the OLED panel. If reports saying that the 512GB 6.5-inch iPhone will be priced at $1,299, then that means you have to be prepared to shell out at least Dh5,580. The picture further shows that the affordable iPhone will come with single rear camera setup, glass back, which hints at wireless charging support.

To be fair, listed prices in America are still subject to sales tax - anywhere between less than 1 per cent to over 10 per cent, depending which state you're in. Unfortunately, such a model may be restricted to those regions, too, as we heard it might be China-specific.

The new report from Slashleaks also suggests that all the three iPhones will be available starting September 21. Apple does not comment on speculation or rumours. Like last year, Apple is not expected to include Touch ID on this year's iPhones as well.
