In the early days of the iPhone, the choice was somewhat limited. In the best case, you can select a color and choose the amount of storage you want. But with each successive release, Apple began to slowly diversify its iPhone line on all fronts. From new form factors to new colors, the number of iPhone options available to users has expanded significantly in recent years. In 2017, Apple shook things up with the launch of the iPhone X, the company's first OLED iPhone and the first iPhone to eliminate the tried and true start button.
Looking ahead to 2018, Apple's iPhone line will become more varied than ever. According to a new report by Nikkei Apple next year will present three new iPhone models. It is said that two of these models have OLED screens with screens of 5.8 and 6.3 inches. The third new iPhone model will have a 6.1-inch LCD screen and a metal back.
While iPhone rumors are a dozen, especially after a new version, it is worth noting that the Nikkei report aligns very well with a previous research note by Ming-Chi Kuo, considered to be the most accurate Apple analyst on the planet. However, there is a slight discrepancy that is worth noting. While Kuo believes that a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone is on the cards, he anticipates that the largest model of the iPhone X with an OLED screen will have a 6.5-inch screen, not a 6.3-inch one. Whatever the final dimensions, Kuo's research note from last month indicates that the device will probably be called iPhone X Plus.
A point that does not make reference Nikkei and that Kuo mentioned in a previous inverter note, is that the iPhone 6.1-inch LCD model already mentioned will have a screen without borders. In other words, it is very possible that each new model of iPhone that we see next year completely abandon Touch ID in favor of Face ID. Of course, it is logical that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and perhaps a renewed iPhone SE, be available to users who are looking for a wallet-friendly device or can not be separated from the home button. .
If Kuo's evaluation turns out to be accurate, that's what the Apple line looks like next year.
