Apple planning LCD iPhone with metal case for 2018

IPhone X vs. iPhone 8 durability; Tim Cook keeps talking in China

The device is expected to cost less than the iPhone X successor, for it is sporting a liquid crystal display.

Nikkei said Apple will launch 6.3-inch and 5.8-inch iPhone variants with OLED technology, in addition to a 6.1-inch model with a traditional LCD display.

The folks over at Nikkei cite their own sources, which state that the new 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will sport a metal back and come in several colors. Kuo, however, stated that all three 2018 models would debut with full-screen, edge-to-edge displays and the TrueDepth camera system that's now featured on the 10th anniversary iPhone. At best, you'd be able to select a color and choose how much storage you wanted.

It has been reported that Apple will offer a larger 512GB version of both the updated iPhone X and new iPhone X Plus, as it looks to boost sales among premium users. The iPhone 7 on the other hand came with five options in total, Rose Gold, Gold, Silver, Jet Black and Matte Black.

If you care at all about battery life, consider the iPhone X. The new iPhone 8 Plus apparently has even longer battery life, too, though I haven't personally tried that phone to see it first-hand.

The only thing that I'm now finding hard to believe is the idea that Apple will switch only to Plus-sized iPhones over 5.5-inches for 2018.

Apple's latest flagship - iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus - came with minor design tweaks compared to their predecessors and the biggest change was the glass unibody design. We knew key details about the iPhone 7 shortly after the 6S launched.

Apple is also rumored to be launching two other iPhone moels next year.

Opting to not use OLED displays for all of its iPhones next year makes sense for Apple and will ensure the company is not completely dependant on rival Samsung Electronics Co. The information was shared by KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kou.

One point not referenced by Nikkei, and brought up by Kuo in a previous investor note, is that the aforementioned 6.1-inch LCD iPhone model will feature an edgeless display.
