With the launch of the iPhone X in 2017, some owners of iPhones of 4.7 inches (iPhones 6, 7 and 8) felt helpless, since from then on Apple launched devices with even bigger displays, reaching 6, 5 inches with the iPhone XS Max.
However, the Chinese newspaper Economic Daily News (EDN) informed [Google Tradutor] that this could change, for the happiness of these users. According to the report, Apple plans to release an “upgraded version of the 4.7-inch iPhone 8” in March next year, with the objective of boosting the medium-sized smartphone market.
According to EDN, anonymous sources at the Taiwanese company Fubon Securities Investment Trust said that Pegatron, an Apple partner supplier, received an initial order for 20 million units of the alleged device. More precisely, this model will have the same 4.7 ″ LCD display and rear camera, but will gain a new processor (possibly the) A13 and internal storage starting at 128GB.
This also means that this model would have Touch ID (as well as the new iPad mini and Air), maintaining the main features of older iPhones. As for the price, the EDN believes the updated iPhone 8 will range between $ 600 and $ 650, which could help boost Apple’s sales in emerging markets.
It remains for us to continue to follow the news to know what will really happen. Excited?
