It's interesting to see that Apple continues to prefer its cheaper models for experimenting with colors, which is an understandable move, as the launch of more options creates more fragmentation and could end up resulting in more unsold units for specific colors, making them unprofitable.
In his latest report, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Apple will be launching its 2018 iPhones in a multitude of colors. The grey/black and white colors referred to by Kuo here likely point to the existing Space Grey and Silver color options which Apple already offers with the iPhone X. Thus, it is the other three colors which are going to be new in Apple's iPhone lineup this year. Also reportedly on tap is an upgraded 5.8-inch iPhone X. The company is expected to unveil a new 5.8-inch OLED iPhone, a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, and a 6.5-inch OLED iPhone.
The second generation iPhone X will still come in black and white, but this time a gold option is being added to the mix.
Kuo expects the LCD model to be most popular of the three.
"With competitive pricing and the new attractive colors, Kuo is raising his predictions for iPhone sales", the report notes. The top tier 6.5-inch iPhone will share those colors as well as the dual camera and will cost $1000.
