If you’re anything like the rest of the Apple fans out there, you’re going to have a hell of a time choosing your next iPhone when September comes around.
On one hand, you’ve got a new first-of-its-kind mid-range iPhone coming that’ll feature the same design as the flagships, similar specs, and a price tag that could start at just $550.
If any of the rumours, from the world’s most accurate Apple insider, pan out, it’ll feature an LCD display instead of an OLED screen, an aluminium midframe instead of stainless steel, and no 3D Touch support... But seriously, who cares about 3D Touch support and stainless steel?
The LCD display is doable considering how great Apple’s LCDs are, and any performance hit resulting from less RAM should be more than offset by the $400 or so that one stands to save by choosing this model over a flagship 2018 iPhone. On top of all that, it looks like this new iPhone model is going to be a perfect size, or should we rather say "the perfect size".
Then, on the other hand, you’ve got the upcoming iPhone X Plus. This new phone – which definitely won’t be called the “iPhone X Plus,” by the way – will be just like Apple’s current iPhone X, but larger.
Rumour also has it that, in addition to a next-generation A-series processor and all the upgraded internal components, the iPhone X Plus will feature a nice big 6.5-inch OLED screen. It’ll also feature a nice big price tag that climbs well over $1,000 for the model with the most storage. Decisions, decisions!
Then there is the iPhone SE 2, which still needs to make its way to consumers. The iPhone SE 2 is expected to feature a design much like the current model, but with upgraded internal components and a glass back for wireless charging.
Guess we will have to wait and see what Apple has in store for its fellow fans out there.
