Apple is reportedly planning to release three new models of its popular iPhone series; earlier report was sourced through KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo while the fresh one has surfaced through Nomura, a Japanese securities firm. Both reports claim that Apple might launch two iPhone with OLED displays, while the third one would be equipped with a standard LCD panel.
Nomura has also stated that the iPhones arriving in 2019 will be equipped with a rear-mounted 3D sensing camera. The inclusion of a rear-mounted camera that possesses features of the TrueDepth Camera will allow the company to fulfil its goal of bringing full-fledged AR support on iPhones.
According to Nomura, it was able to acquire the above information on 2018 iPhones through supply chain surveys. The lower-priced LCD iPhone will be assembled by Pegatron and possibly Wistron. The other two OLED iPhones is expected to be assembled by Foxconn.
iPhone of 2018 with 6.1 Inch LCD Panel
Nomura claims that the iPhone of 2018 with LCD panel will be featuring larger 6.1 inch TFT LCD screen sporting the same edge-to-edge design like the one introduced in the iPhone X. Moreover, users will be offered with only a single camera on its rear side. The device will be enabled with Face ID feature and expected to be priced from $650 to $900.
iPhone of 2018 with 5.8 Inch OLED Panel
The Japanese securities firm claims that Apple is geared up to introduce an iPhone with the same display features that of the iPhone X – 5.8 inch PLED panel with edge-to-edge display. It is expected to arrive as a sequel to the iPhone X.
iPhone of 2018 with 6.5 Inch OLED Panel
The fresh report claims that Apple has decided to go even bigger than the iPhone X by introducing another OLED iPhone next year dubbed as “Plus” model housing a bigger display of 6.5 inches in size. It is expected to come with features like dual-SIM support and 512 GB storage.
The Japanese firm, however, admits that these predictions could be wrong and that complete confirmation regarding these claims might be available around second quarter of 2018, when these firms get actual orders from Apple.
