There should be quite a lot of renderings on Apple's three new generation iPhones this year, and most of them are based on rumors from the past few months. Recently, NieuweMobiel also designed a high-quality real-life rendering of the new iPhone in 2018, claiming that this should be a more affordable 6.1-inch LCD model, which looks very close to the iPhone X.
If nothing else, Apple's new iPhone this year may have three different models. As shown above, one of them is the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone X, which will be the successor to the iPhone X in 2017, and the 6.1-inch LCD screen iPhone.
It is said that the new iPhone X in 2018 is 5.8 inches in size as it was last year, but the body design will have some minor adjustments and changes. The larger 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus, in addition to the “zoom in” of the entire unit, will be further enhanced, including larger memory and more storage capacity. Although some sources said that Apple may consider plugging a three-camera configuration similar to the Huawei P20 Pro on the iPhone X Plus, this should be 2019.
In any case, the focus of this set of real machine renderings is the cheaper LCD version of the iPhone. This model has shrunk in many hardware configurations compared to OLED models. As you can see in the renderings, the designer also removes one of the most critical features: the dual camera module, which has a single lens instead of a single lens, which reduces costs. According to rumors, the screen may not have 3D Touch touch pressure sensing function.
In fact, from the front, this rendered 6.1-inch LCD model is no different from the iPhone X in design language. There is a “edge to edge” display, and there is also a “bang” groove for face recognition. A fingerprint sensor is provided. However, there is one less point in the rendering of Apple's design to weigh the cost. The fuselage is made of aluminum metal frame instead of stainless steel.
There have been analytical predictions that the 2018 LCD iPhone will be the most productive one, as the starting price is between $600 and $700, the most affordable of the three. Although still very expensive, it has meant more consumers can afford than OLED models. There is also news that the 6.1-inch LCD model does not have wireless charging capabilities, and how much Apple will shrink is still unknown.
It is understood that although the LCD model production time is a month later, all models of Apple's new iPhone can be put on the shelves around September 15.
