New low-cost iPhone models may replace the iPhone 8 series.

If true to the rumors, it is possible that the upcoming low-cost iPhone models with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screens will be the replacement devices for the current iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Therefore, they will have a similar design to the LCD screen, thick bezel and Home Touch ID key.

In addition to the design similar to the iPhone 8 line, rumors also suggest that the new low-cost iPhone with a 4.7-inch screen will be equipped with the A13 processor – similar to the processor used in current iPhones. at Apple, including iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. Perhaps this processor will also be used on the new 5.5-inch iPhone.

Rumors also suggest that Apple intends to sell the cheaper 4.7-inch iPhone for $ 399, and if so, the 5.5-inch screen version will cost about 499 USD. Apple is also expected to release a new low-cost iPhone in the first half of this year, probably in March, but perhaps the corona virus outbreak in the US has affected the company’s plans.
