KGI Believes Apple Could Price Its Upcoming 6.1-Inch LCD iPhone Model For $550-$650, As It May Includes Dual-SIM Feature

Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in a new investor note claimed that the upcoming 6.1-inch iPhone could be available in two models, one includes a single SIM that priced at $550-$650, while the second will be offering dual-SIM dual standby (DSDS) functionality, which has two SIM card slots.

6.1" LCD iPhone may have model that supports DSDS. If the 6.1" LCD iPhone comes with DSDS and single-SIM models, we believe it will result in two benefits: (1) more price segments would be created, significantly boosting shipments via the low-price single-SIM model. For instance, if the DSDS model sells for US$650-750, the single-SIM model may sell for US$550-650; and (2) the DSDS model will help increase market share in China and commercial markets.

The analyst clarifies that both the 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch devices will support DSDS, while the 5.8-inch iPhone for some reasons will not support it. The dual-SIM feature would make it easier for people to switch carriers when traveling, where Kuo believes it will "help increase market share in China and commercial market.”

Moreover. KGI predicts that mass production for the 5.8-inch iPhone model and 6.5-inch iPhone model start three to five weeks earlier than the low-priced version, as Apple plans to add a DSDS model. Kuo says 6.1-inch LCD model, in particular, that Apple could sell between 100 million and 120 million units from 3Q 2018 to 3Q 2019.
