KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo wrote a brand new report about Apple’s plans for subsequent yr. In keeping with him, the corporate goes to launch three new iPhone units subsequent yr. They’ll all have edge-to-edge shows with a notch.
The successor of the iPhone X might be roughly the identical measurement and form. In keeping with Kuo, this new iPhone would function a 5.Eight-inch show with a density of 458 pixels per inch. That is precisely the identical specs as the present show within the iPhone X.
But when a 5.Eight-inch show just isn’t sufficient, KGI Securities thinks there will probably be an even bigger telephone with a 6.5-inch show. It’ll even be an OLED show with a pixel density of 480-500 pixels per inch. In different phrases, there is perhaps a second-gen iPhone X Plus.
That’s not all. Apple doesn’t plan to concentrate on high-end telephones that price $1,000 or extra. The corporate can be going to launch a successor to the iPhone Eight. However Apple plans to carry a few of the improvements within the iPhone X to this new machine.
This lower-end iPhone (however nonetheless very costly) may price between $649 and $749 and have an edge-to-edge show with a notch. However there will probably be tradeoffs. For example, you’ll be able to count on a standard LCD show with a decrease decision (roughly 320 to 330 pixels per inch).
It may have a 6.1-inch show, which might make it barely larger than the iPhone X. And it may have all of the sensors for Face ID and face monitoring.
Apple works on new telephones years earlier than unveiling them. However, as all the time, this report won’t be completely correct. We’ll study extra about Apple’s 2018 iPhone lineup within the coming months.
