‘Budget’ iPhone Xc leaks reveal four coloured backs, dual SIM support

‘Budget’ iPhone Xc leaks reveal four coloured backs, dual SIM support

Three days before Apple is expected to announce this year's new iPhones, a new report claims the cheapest of the expected trio of new releases might not be as easy to come by on launch day. All these specs for the 6.1-incher make sense because Apple is planning to position this as a more "entry-level" device, the price of which would be at par with the iPhone X's lesser co-star past year, the iPhone 8, which is now priced starting at Dh2,991.50, which is about $815. You'll need two new accessories for that, a 29W USB-C adapter, and a USB-C to Lightning cable, which will run you $74. We'll be reporting live from Apple's spaceship-shaped campus with all the details.

Along with two pricey, high-end iPhones, Apple is expected to release a lower-cost device with a 6.1-inch LCD display. It'll be joined by a similar, but larger, 6.5-inch model, now tipped to be called the iPhone XS Max (although we're not convinced by that name). The Apple Watch Series 4 is expected to come with an edge-to-edge display with bigger screen size. This will supposedly be called the iPhone Xs, with the budget version named the iPhone Xr. Why? Reports around what to expect from Apple's event has been making rounds of the internet since the beginning of this year. We've been dubbing it the iPhone 9, but it could well be known as the iPhone XC as Apple really doubles down on this X moniker. Now, we are hearing that Apple will likely announce two iPad Pro models on Wednesday, including an all-new 11-inch tablet and a refreshed version of existing 12.9-inch variant. Considering the rumoured specs of the iPhone XC, looks like it will be the successor to the iPhone 8.

Alongside the new iPhones, Apple is also expected to launch a new iteration of its smartwatch.

It has happened nearly every time Apple has introduced a new design: iPhone 4, iPhone 5, iPhone 6/6 Plus, and iPhone X. The dual SIM iPhone will be mostly limited to a few Asian markets like China, India, and Indonesia.

The Sept. 21 time frame would be a week-and-a-half after Apple's Sept. 12 launch event.
