The 6.5-inch iPhone 2018 model is likely to be priced around $1,000 and will feature dual SIM capabilities, according to a key analyst associated with Taiwanese business group KGI Securities.

While this model would come in black, white and a new gold colour variant, the entry-level 6.1-inch LCD iPhone was likely to be launched in grey, white, blue, red and orange colours, Ming-Chi Kuo said in a research note.

“That’s a potential five new colours for the LCD model. It is very possible that when Kuo says ‘grey’ and ‘white’ he is referring to the Space Grey and Silver finishes as seen on the current iPhone X,” 9to5Mac reported late on Thursday.

“We’ve mocked up the new finishes above by tinting an iPhone X, but note, the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone is not expected to have a dual-camera system,” the report added.

Earlier, the analyst had reportedly said that the iPhone maker would announce and release all three 2018 iPhones in September.

Swatch Defeats Apple in Legal War Over Catch-phrase

In 2007, Swatch trademarked the term “iSwatch” before Apple could register for “iWatch.”

Swiss watchmaker Swatch defeated Apple in a legal battle where the iPhone-maker claimed that the watch company used the phrase “One More Thing” — which was regularly used by Steve Jobs in his key notes.

While launching a “film noir inspired” set of watches in Australia, Swatch did use the phrase but it said the line was picked up from an old detective TV serial “Columbo” in which the character often said “just one more thing”, 9To5Mac reported on Saturday.

Drian Richards, the hearing officer of the case, sided with Swatch and ordered Apple to pay the watchmaker’s legal fees.

He noted that Apple had never used the “One More Thing” phrase in conjunction with any “particular” goods or services.

How much will Apple have to pay back to Swatch remains undisclosed as of now.

In August, 2015 Swatch had trademarked the expression “One More Thing”.

However, Apple believed that watch-maker should not be allowed to use that trademark over the phrase and instead applied for its own trademark.

This latest ruling in Australia comes after Apple lost a similar legal battle with Swatch in Switzerland earlier in April where the watchmaker used the phrase “Tick Different” while promoting its new NFC-enabled watch.

Apple argued that the phrase unfairly traded on its “Think Different” slogan it used in the 1990s but the Swiss court sided by Swatch on the issue.
