Apple is preparing to introduce a new 5.5-inch entry-stage iPhone, based on the evidence present in iOS 14 by 9to5Mac. It was being said that Apple would quickly launch a brand new 4.7-inch LCD cellphone that reuses the iPhone eight design with up to date internals; however that is the primary indication that Apple might launch a “Plus” model — and given the obvious 5.5-inch display measurement, this new phone will presumably reuse the iPhone eight Plus’ design.
The brand new telephones will even apparently have a strong state dwelling button like the unique iPhone eight and iPhone 8 Plus, depend on Touch ID as a substitute of Face ID, and include Apple Pay’s Express Transit feature, which helps you to simply maintain your phone close to a transit terminal to pay for transit. The brand new telephones may also apparently have the ability to scan NFC tags without requiring a user to open up an app, a characteristic that’s solely presently accessible on the iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and iPhone 11.
The brand new 4.7-inch entry-stage iPhone will begin at $399, will likely be obtainable with both 64GB or 128GB of inner storage, and can are available in grey, silver, or red, in accordance with Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. It’s unclear what the pricing of this new 5.5-inch model might be, however earlier “Plus”-sized phones have price $100 greater than the comparable 4.7-inch model. Kuo mentioned in October that Apple would launch the new 4.7-inch entry-degree phone at the end of March, and this rumored 5.5-inch model would presumably launch on the identical time.
