December 7 According to Nikkei News reports, Apple will introduce three new iPhone in 2018, two of which are equipped with OLED display material, while the other one uses the traditional LCD panel, and the LCD version and the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus the same aluminum shell material.
Nikkei News quoted an insider as saying that the screen size of the new iPhone for the LCD panel is 6.1 inches, while the other two OLED panels have screen sizes of 5.8 inches and 6.2 inches respectively.
In addition, the LCD version with a metal backshell will offer a variety of body color options, and the metal case is mainly manufactured by Casetek, a subsidiary of Pegatron.
Nikkei News The disclosure of the news with the previous KGI Securities analyst Kwok Ming-kui's report consistent, Kwok Ming-kwan had also predicted next year, Apple will launch three new iPhone, only the size of the screen on the two views are different.
Kwok Ming-kuo that the next three new iPhone screen sizes were 5.8-inch OLED (with the cash iPhone X), 6.5-inch OLED iPhone X Plus and a 6.1-inch LCD screen version.
Kuo Ming-tao said that all three new iPhone models will have a full-screen borderless design, with the same TrueDepth camera system as the iPhone X, but without mentioning the material of the body shell. Currently iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus three products support wireless charging.
So if you have an iPhone using an LCD screen and an aluminum body, it means that this version does not support wireless charging. It is unclear whether Apple is willing to shrink on this low-profile version, removing the key new feature of wireless charging.
At the same time this LCD panel iPhone resolution also lower than the other two, it is priced lower than the OLED screen version, the main target is aimed at the low-end market.
Currently the prevailing view is that Apple will launch a larger version of the iPhone X Plus version of the iPhone X screen next year, while the outside world about the three new iPhone is more consistent, so has a very high reliability.
