Apple Will Launch 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus and 6.1-inch iPhone with LCD Display in 2018
Apple will launch a trio of iPhone X like design devices in 2018 including 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch models with OLED displays and a 6.1-inch model with an LCD display. The leak comes from respected KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo believes all three models will be equipped with a full-screen notched design and TrueDepth camera system.
According to a Kuo, Apple is working on a new LCD model with a large 6.1-inch display to achieve a price between $650 and $750 in the United States to target the low-end and mid-range smartphone markets. This model will also feature Face ID and advanced cameras to replace Touch ID, and Apple will reduce the bezels on this LCD model.
Kuo believes the 5.8-inch model to have 458 PPI, suggesting the second generation iPhone X model will likely to have a resolution of 1,125×2,436, and the 6.5-inch model will have 480 to 500 PPI, while the 6.1-inch model will have a lower-resolution LCD display between 320 to 330 PPI.
Kuo said, “We believe the major hardware difference in the two new OLED models is size. All three devices are expected to have full-screen design and 3-D sensing.”
Kuo says all three models to launch without any delays in 2018 as Apple’s supply chain will be well experienced with the iPhone X production by next year.
If Kuo will right, Apple’s next year iPhone lineup would consist of the second-gen iPhone X with the same size screen 5.8-inch, a mid-range 6.1-inch LCD model with cheaper price and a larger 6.5-inch version that could tentatively call the iPhone X Plus.
