Apple will apparently launch three new iPhones next year, a new iPhone X Plus with a 6.5 inch display, a 5.8 inch iPhone X with an OLED display, 6.1 inch iPhone with exactly the same design as the other two but with an LCD display.
All three handsets will apparently have the same design as the iPhone X and will have the notch at the top of the display. The three devices will also come with Apple’s TrueDepth camera and FaceID. The LCD model will be cheaper than the other two handsets. The news comes in a report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Two new OLED models target high-end market; new TFT-LCD model aims at low-end & midrange markets: We believe the major hardware difference in the two new OLED models is size, in a bid to satisfy various needs of the high-end market. The new TFT-LCD model will differ significantly from the OLED models in hardware and design specs (for instance, the PPI will be lower). The primary selling points of the TFT-LCD model may be the innovative user experience of an integrated full-screen design and 3D sensing with a lower price tag (we expect it will likely be US$649-749).
Apple is obviously planning to use their iPhone X design for next years handsets, this is something the company has done in the past, keep the same design for a couple of years. Sales of Apple’s new iPhone have been high and the handset is expected to be the company’s most popular smartphone to date, despite its high $999 price.
