Apple is rumored to be working on three iPhones for this year. Two of them are expected to feature OLED panels such as iPhone X from 2017. The third iPhone is expected to feature a larger-sized LCD panel. Fresh information claims that this iPhone will be featuring an LCD panel from Japan Display (JDI)
Previous reports have revealed that the one of the 2018 iPhones will house a 6.1-inch LCD screen. It will be an entry-level iPhone that will be priced around $700 to $800. Latest leak reveals that it will be featuring Full Active 6.1-inch LCD panel that was introduced in June 2017 by JDI. The display supports Full HD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and it delivers an aspect ratio of 18:9. As shown in the below image, an iPhone featuring the Full Active display from JDI will be able to sport super-slim on all four sides.
Like the other OLED iPhones of 2018, the LCD iPhone is also expected to feature a notch. Also, instead of the stainless-steel frame, the LCD iPhone is rumored to feature an aluminum frame. It may not feature dual camera setup. Also, it is likely to lack 3D Touch.
As far as OLED iPhones for this year are concerned, one of them that will feature a 5.8-inch screen will arrive as a direct successor for the iPhone X. The other OLED iPhone is speculated to be fitted with a 6.5-inch display. These smartphones are expected to feature dual rear cameras and stainless-steel frame.
A recent report had claimed that the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone would be equipped with dual-SIM feature and 512 GB storage. None of the iPhones arriving this year are going to feature Touch ID sensors. All the 2018 iPhones are expected to arrive with True Depth and Face ID sensors.
As of this writing, there is no confirmation on the names of the 2018 iPhones. Recent reports have claimed that the Cupertino company will be launching the second-generation iPhone SE by the first half of this year. The other iPhones are expected to debut in September.
