Apple Projected to Sell Up to 100 Million 6.1-inch LCD iPhones

Kuo also estimates that the 6.1-inch model could cost between $700-$800 in the U.S., and is expected to replace the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus models. Those could include using an LCD screen instead of OLED, an aluminum frame, a single lens camera, and no 3D Touch.

Apple could sell up to 100 million 6.1-inch LCD iPhones if it launches the rumored device this fall, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo believes that Apple will cease production of this particular model in the summer.

The 6.1-inch LCD model of the iPhone, which does not feature a name at the moment carries a huge level of hype, which is surprising because the higher-end models are supposed to carry that wave of momentum. The replacement for the iPhone X is believed to consist of a three-SKU 2018 iPhone lineup. This smartphone could also be rocking the same notch as the iPhone X, which is why it could be carrying a cheaper price tag than the remaining two handsets slated to be released this year.

Pricing for the lineup is obviously unknown at this stage but it makes sense for the 6.1-inch LCD device to be the "budget" offering, relatively. On that basis, today's shipping estimate suggests lifetime sales of 2018 iPhones could reach approximately 200 million units. Apple sure does ship a lot of phones.
