Specs and Feature
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects to see three new full-screen iPhone models in 2018. He predicted that one iPhone will have an iPhone X design with a 5.8-inch OLED display. The second iPhone will have a larger 6.5-inch OLED display, while the third iPhone will have a 6.1-inch LCD display. He also noted that the two OLED models will target the high-end market, while the LCD model will target the low-end and mid-range markets.
Here’s what Ming-Chi Kuo said “We believe the major hardware difference in the two new OLED models is size, in a bid to satisfy various needs of the high-end market. The new TFT-LCD model will differ significantly from the OLED models in hardware and design specs (for instance, the PPI will be lower). The primary selling points of the TFT-LCD model may be the innovative user experience of an integrated full-screen design and 3D sensing with a lower price tag.”
According to a report from Nikkei, Apple’s 6.1-inch LCD iPhone model might made from metal though all of Apple’s 2017 models are made from glass.
