The Apple iPhone X is the first smartphone ever from the company to feature an OLED screen. New information shared by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reveals that Apple will be releasing two OLED iPhones in 2018. He claims that one of them will be a successor model for iPhone X while the other one is likely to arrive as its “Plus” variant.
Early rumor for 2017 iPhones had claimed that the Cupertino company may launch a 6-inch iPhone this year. However, it did not come true. Instead, a 5.8-inch iPhone X was unveiled with full screen design. The new information shared by Kuo suggests that we may see a 6-inch iPhone Xl Plus in 2018.
Kuo has further claimed that the iPhone X has a stainless-steel frame with four parts, but the iPhone X 2018 is likely to feature four parts which will help in improving data transmission on it. Some rumors have claimed that the 2018 iPhones will be coming with rear-mounted TrueDepth Camera system. However, Kuo is of the view that the 2018 iPhones will continue to feature only front-mounted TrueDepth Camera system.
In the previous month, the rumor mill had revealed that the larger iPhone Xl Plus would be equipped with a 6.46-inch screen. It was also revealed that the Cupertino company would be also introducing a stylus for it. The fresh information shared by Kuo does not contain any information on the size of the larger iPhone X model that will be arriving next year. A recent report has also revealed that the 2018 iPhones may feature modem chips from Intel and MediaTek.
As of this writing, there is no confirmation on whether Apple will be releasing successor models for iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in 2018. With new iPhone X models reportedly arriving next year, Apple may slash the pricing of the original iPhone X.
