Meaning, we can expect the new iPhones to be available in India on the same date. The picture further shows that the affordable iPhone will come with single rear camera setup, glass back, which hints at wireless charging support. Both the iPhone XS and XS Max are expected to be successors to the iPhone X released previous year as they both might feature OLED displays on the front.

Apple is widely expected to reveal three new iPhone models at an event it's hosting this week at the Apple Park campus in California.

Although the iPhone X is still expensive on contract things have come down in price a little. The iPhone XS (5.8-inch) will start at 7388? For example, Xiaomi recently launched the Redmi 6A at a starting price of Rs 5,999 and the device has Dual 4G support. It mentions dual SIM variants of the XS models, though, so there's still a bit of confusion in that regard.

And most importantly, the China Mobile presentation indicates that the 6.1-inch model will be dubbed the iPhone XC. Analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, who's often accurate at its assumption on upcoming Apple products, said that the 6.1-inch iPhone launching this year will be priced between $600 - $700.


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.

The iPhone XS is expected to be the premium-edition model with an OLED screen in the upcoming range of iPhone 2018. This is not the Chinese cost of the iPhone 8 Plus.

And while there are bump-ups indeed, reports say that Apple was able to keep the price at the same levels by going with cheaper components. But if you thought the names "iPhone XS" and "iPhone XS Max" were already cringe-worthy, the colorful "iPhone Xc" might have something to upset hopefuls more than just its name. 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".
