This is why we’re not getting a 5G iPhone this year

This is why we’re not getting a 5G iPhone this year

Stay tuned for all this and more from us in tandem with Apple's event on September 12 at 10AM PT. Apple is preparing to launch the iPhone XS which is a 2018 version of the iPhone X, an iPhone XS Max, that's said to feature a 6.5-inch display and a budget iPhone that may be called the iPhone XR. Now a presentation slide of the Chinese mobile phone operator, China Mobile, brings a number of new names into play.

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. Given that it's been two years since the first generation of AirPods hit store shelves, it may time for Apple to release AirPods 2. That squares with past iPhone rollouts.

Dual SIM cards have been available on Android devices for years, and the fact that the majority of leaks are coming from China may suggest that Apple is gearing up for a bigger push into that market, where it is now lagging behind domestic handset giants Huawei and Oppo. To cut down on costs, the edges will be made of aluminum instead of stainless steel and in what may excite Apple fans, this handset will come in a variety of colours.

Another upgrade on the new Apple Watch that has been touted for a while now is a 15 percent bigger screen. The anticipated iPhone XS and its larger counterpart are also expected to have this type of screen, while the "cheaper" phone will get an LCD screen.

IPhone 6.1 inch has dual SIM
Both these smartphones would come with an OLED display, with the former sporting a 5.8-inch panel and the latter a 6.5 inch one. The publication has since heard that Apple will likely use the name iPhone Xs Max for the larger 6.5-inch variant.

Pricing details have not been firmed up, but the consensus among Wall Street analysts is that the LCD iPhone will be between $699 and $749. Whether Apple will announce new iPad Pros during its September 12 event is also uncertain, and possibly unlikely.

This chipset is also expected to be present in the iPhone Xr and the iPhone Xs Max. Apple will also unveil a cheaper 6.1 inch LCD iPhone this year. There are already several leaks about these upcoming Apple devices. Past year reports believed that we'll see an iPhone Pro, but these never materialized.

Those differences in the leaked images mean that even though legitimate carriers appear to be teasing the new information, there's still a chance that some of these leaks could be fake or based on speculation.
