Apple May Offer a Dual-SIM Model of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone [Report]

Apple may offer a dual-SIM dual standby model of the rumored 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

If the company does offer a DSDS model, Kuo estimates that it could be priced at $650 to $750. The single SIM model is said to cost between $550 and $650.

6.1" LCD iPhone may have model that supports DSDS. If the 6.1" LCD iPhone comes with DSDS and single-SIM models, we believe it will result in two benefits: (1) more price segments would be created, significantly boosting shipments via the low-price single-SIM model. For instance, if the DSDS model sells for US$650-750, the single-SIM model may sell for US$550-650; and (2) the DSDS model will help increase market share in China and commercial markets.


Additionally, Kuo believes the upcoming 6.5-inch OLED iPhone will also support DSDS but the second generation 5.8-inch OLED iPhone will not. In previous notes, Kuo has said that Apple will use both Intel's XMM 7560 modem and Qualcomm's Snapdragon X20 modem. The DSDS devices will purportedly allow two SIM cards to be active simultaneously using one set of chips.

Apple is expected to release the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone (2nd generation), 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, and 6.5-inch OLED iPhone this fall. Kuo says that mass production of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will begin 3-5 weeks later than the OLED models due to the recent decision to add a DSDS model.

KGI expects the lower price of the 6.1-inch iPhone to "significantly boost shipment momentum."
