Apple recently launched three new smartphones worldwide – the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and the X. According to Ming Chi-Kuo, a KGI Securities Analyst, Apple might do the same next year too. As per Kuo’s note published on MacRumors, one of them will be a mid-range device. All these smartphones will come with a full-screen display with the infamous notch on top.
The report states that the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch 2018 iPhone variants will sport an OLED display similar to the iPhone X, whereas the 6.1-inch mid-range smartphone will sport an LCD display. Additionally, the 5.8-inch iPhone will have a 458ppi pixel density, while the 6.5-inch and 6.1-inch variants will have a pixel density of 500ppi and 330ppi respectively.
The Apple iPhone X is the world’s first iPhone to feature an OLED bezel-less display. Whereas the Apple iPhone 8 which was launched alongside the iPhone X comes with an LCD display which has been seen in the previous iPhone models too.
The report states that this time Apple wouldn’t have any delays in the production of the devices, as the production lines would have gained in experience by the time they launch the devices due to the production of the iPhone X.
If the report is indeed true, then it can be assumed that all three upcoming iPhones will get rid of the TouchID sensor in favour of the FaceID protection. Anyway, it’s too early to speculate about the next-gen iPhones as their newest iterations were launched very recently and these rumoured iPhones are at least 3 quarters away. We will share more details as and when they emerge.
