  • Apple is expected to release three new iPhone models this fall.
  • The least expensive model could come in a variety of colours, including blue, red, and orange, according to an analyst.

Apple could release an iPhone later this year with grey, white, blue, red, and orange colour options.

The colourful new phone would be a less expensive model that has facial recognition and an edge-to-edge screen, according to details from the TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo shared by 9to5Mac.

The iPhone 8 is available in silver, black, gold, and red. The iPhone X comes in silver and black.

Apple watchers are expecting three new iPhones this year: one that looks like the iPhone X but with updated components; a supersize version of the iPhone X; and a less expensive, colourful iPhone with an edge-to-edge LCD screen and facial recognition that costs $US650 to $US750.

The supersize iPhone X could come in another new colour – gold – according to the note shared by 9to5Mac.

Apple most recently released a lower-cost iPhone model with the iPhone 5c in 2013. That too came in a variety of colours, but it was not as strong a seller as Apple had hoped, and the model was discontinued soon after its release.

Kuo is a well-regarded analyst who often reveals new details about Apple’s production plans before they are public. While he was at another bank last November, he shared this graphic with his prediction about the 2018 iPhone lineup:
