Apple iPhone Xc is the cheap variant of iPhone X, according to the latest reports.
Apple iPhone Xc might sound silly, but iDrop News shares some solid reasons why an affordable, polycarbonate iPhone with features from the X might be compelling for both consumers and Apple. iDrop imagines a budget, bezel-less iPhone Xc could be priced at $449 or $549 — depending on its display technology and other factors. If Apple could bring features like its TrueDepth camera system, bezel-less display, and wireless charging to a entry-level iPhone, it would likely be a boon to its smartphone market share across the board, but particularly in India and China.
As more and more manufactures are making bezel-less smartphones, it’s becoming a standard flagship feature. And Apple is rumored to be bringing 3 bezel-less iPhone models to market next year. iDrop’s concept notes that an iPhone Xc device could use an LCD panel instead of OLED to cut costs.
