China Telecom Teases Upcoming iPhone 9 With Dual SIM Support

China Telecom Teases Upcoming iPhone 9 With Dual SIM Support

With various other product launches rumoured besides the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XC, it should be a show worth waiting for.

There's a super-sized price coming along with it as well though - the iPhone XS Max is likely to cost €1149 in Europe, which is, well, loads. That's all up in the air.

The product launches will begin on Wednesday (US time) in the Steve Jobs Theater at the company's Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino, California. Original, no Snake 2 nonsense.

Two of them - the smallest and biggest - will have OLED screens; OLED screens have been in smartphones for some years now, though Apple only made a decision to use it for the first time last year on the iPhone X.

There may be a new iPad that looks a lot more like the iPhone X. The iPhone XS will start around £973 and the iPhone XS Plus around £1,105.

What do you think about Apple event, do you find them as fascinating to watch as they were before?

But Apple's tablets have struggled to convince buyers to upgrade in significant numbers, leaving the line to plateaux around the 9-13m units shipped a quarter over the last two years, down from the heady highs of 26m in the first quarter of 2014. There might be a few more new features Apple shows off on stage this week though, and one rumor suggested that the new models might have twice as much storage as their predecessors. The company plans to introduce new Apple Watches with larger screens that go almost edge-to-edge, showing the user more information.

What's more, there's no information on the new iPhones' specifications, hardware, or software.
