Perhaps for the first time since the iPhones have hit the market, a BUDGET variant of an iPhone model has hit the market. Generations are sensing the shock waves as the effect of this happy little surprise sink in on the people. This Apple AAPL +0.05% also known as the Budget iPhone X brings in the kitty some information that is too good to be true.
Mac Otakara, a site well-known for having made this announcement about the iPhones that would in a very controversial and unpopular move would eliminate the headphone jack from the iPhone 7 has gotten its hands on dummy units of all three of their 2018 model. When you lay them all together, the budget model doesn’t look too attractive. It is understandable that the expensive versions are going to be better but such a stark difference between the budget version and this one is shocking!
Losing out on the most popular feature
The most popular feature of the new iPhone X design was the “chin-less” design. The design of the phone was such that it did not have a protruded end. It was seamless and smooth. However, according to the dummy, the same feature has not taken up forward in the budget iPhone.
This new model will also not have a numeric name. Simply, it called the iPhone just like the first and most basic model of the iPad called when initially launched. This model reportedly has really thick chins. So much so, that it looks like it is already into a case.
Why are they doing this?
The biggest USP of every iPhone has been the fact that their designs are futuristic and sleek. Now, bringing out a bulky chunky model just doesn’t sit well with their reputation. So why are they doing it? It perhaps boils down to the simplest fact that that they wanted to save on the cost on the LCD panel.
On the more luxurious 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch models they use OLED. There was some sort of confusion over the curved corners of the phone for whether they should be counted in or out and so, Mac Otakara gives two measurements: 6 inches and 6.4 inches. These flexible OLED panels can curve around the base of the display so the stocky display connector which usually stays hidden in the thicker bottom chin can be shifted to the back of the device. This is a costly thing to get done. This price factor is the main reason why even luxurious models of the Android phones haven’t copied this technology.
Why not with LCD?
LCDs don’t bend. The LCD panels just can’t handle this kind of a bending and so the connector MUST essentially keep right at the bottom. This, unfortunately, is the contributor to the size of the thick phone. Although everything else is pretty much the same, it is sad that this one factor has compromised on to get the phone in shape.
The popularity of iPhone X
Since time immemorial, iPhone X has been an extremely powerful brand. People have loved to keep them, carry them, flaunt them and use them. They are a status symbol, whether you believe it or not. What makes them so popular, are their amazing and Jaw dropping design and the security that they offer?
Not anyone can make apps and launch them on the iTunes gallery. There are many rules for doing that. Getting their app launched on iTunes is a very difficult thing to do because they undergo a lot of scrutinies. It checked for all the rules and guidelines that they have mentioned.
Apple wants to make sure that their premium users safe against malware at any cost. They should absolutely certain for their customer’s protection and don’t face any issues with their apps. In case you have an app and want to get it launched in the iTunes gallery, ensure that the company that makes these apps for you are the ones that are launching them for you.
The app business is a pretty soaring one and now with budget versions of the iPhone, it can only be predicted that more and more buyers will opt for this phone. The user base increases tenfold making it absolutely important to launch any kinds of apps. Having said this, it is understandable that people are already investing in apps in the iOS platform.
