Apple's 6.1-inch iPhone could boast dual-SIM capabilities: Ming-Chi Kuo

According to the current news, Apple has registered 11 new iPhones that will run iOS 11: A1920, A1921, A1984, A2097, A2098, A2099, A2101, A2103, A2104, A2105 and A2106.

This could make the supposed dual-SIM iPhone a popular import for those who can only buy the single-SIM variant in their country. He believes that a dual-SIM model could "help increase market share in China and commercial markets".

Apple has not provided the dual-SIM card slot in any of its iPhone. It should be noted that earlier Bloomberg had reported that 6.5-inch OLED iPhone will come with dual-SIM features. The DSDS variant, however, could go as high as $650.

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

Surging crude oil prices hit shares of oil marketing companies
Japan's Nikkei faded late in the day to end up 0.15 per cent, but basic materials and utilities both climbed more than 2 per cent. Crude inventories dropped by 1.1 million barrels as a result of a decline of 1.3 million barrels per day in net crude imports.

Dual-SIM phones aren't that common in theis part of the world, but they're considered more essential in developing economies such as South America and Asia.

Apple and Samsung flagship models lead in terms of profits as compared to other OEMs, with iPhone X alone generating 35pc of the total handset industry profits even though it was on sale for only the final two months of the year. Supporting Bloomberg's claim, Kuo noted that the dual-SIM support could also be added to the iPhone X Plus.

The registered model numbers show that iPhone is going to release several devices, but that not necessary, because Apple sometimes uses different model numbers for the same type of iPhone.

Ranges nearly never break the 1-10 number system (leaving Apple only with 9 to play with, and it jumped that technically a year ago with iPhone X). It comes across as a odd strategy if true, since there's no reason why Apple can't allow 2 SIM cards in the handset. However, Apple will deprive the phone of the 3D Touch functionality, dual camera system, and the OLED display to keep costs down.

Israel 'Struck Advanced Iranian Air-defense System' in Syria
It took 11 years for them to admit they destroyed the Syrian nuclear reactor just before it would have gone operational in 2007. Tehran could use its terror proxies overseas to carry out an attack that would not directly bear Iranian fingerprints.

Kuo has also predicted that Apple could sell between 100 million and 120 million units between Q3 2018 and Q3 2019. Regardless of chip maker, if the $550 starting price of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone is also true, it could be the fastest selling model of the three. The Korean company would produce only a small number of panels in May, but will double the output in June.

Cupertino giant Apple may introduce a new iPhone as soon as next month. The company a year ago added a 32GB model to the iPhone SE range. A few of these registered model numbers could belong to the highly-anticipated iPhone SE 2.

But hold on, before you get too excited, it's imperative to know that we aren't looking at eleven different iPhone models.

The iPhone SE right now offers for $349 (64GB) or $449 (128GB) and comes in four colors. So, it's a big mystery why Apple is seeking regulatory approval for 11 new iPhones.

Trump opposes USA rejoining Pacific trade deal
President Trump's flirtation with the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade deal lasted one week. The partnership originally involved the US when it was created in February of 2016.

This would come as good news for Apple which of late has been battling questions over its position as an undisputed leader of the smartphone market. Pictured here is the original iPhone SE from 2016. The analyst says Apple is working to release three premium smartphones in September this year.
