2018 iPhone to Sport 6.1-inch LCD, Colorful Metal Backs

Rumors surrounding the iPhone X had been swirling for well over a year in advance. In a note distributed to investors earlier this week, several of Nomura's predictions also align with those of Kuo, including the 6.5-inch model.

In the meantime, Apple refused to accept the result of the experiment, claiming that the iPhone X is the most durable glass-based smartphone, although it commented that Consumer Reports tested the durability of the iPhone X with strict criteria.

While Consumer Reports called the phone an "innovative device with a fantastic camera and handsome display", the iPhone X lost to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in a full comparison of the phones because it was flimsy.

Apple's $999 iPhone X switched from a traditional LCD panel to a more premium OLED screen, which is more colorful, brighter and energy efficient. Touch ID was also replaced with the new Face ID in the 10th anniversary phone. In 2017, Apple shook things up with the release of the iPhone X, the company's first OLED iPhone and the first iPhone to do away with the tried and true home button. The nearly bezel-less phone sports a screen that stretches right to the edges, a futuristic design that makes it more eye-catching than usual. While the third device would be a more budget-friendly option and will trade the OLED display for a 6.1-inch liquid-crystal display. The report stated that LG Display was in the process of setting up production equipment in order to supply Apple with some 60 million OLED panels, with expectations being that production would start around June 2018.

If Kuo's assessment proves to be accurate, this is what Apple's iPhone lineup is going to look like next year. Other items that Kuo has talked about on the smartphones include all three having a full-screen edge-to-edge design and a TrueDepth camera like what is found in the iPhone X today. This of course explains why the device is rumored to be a low-cost entry built for low-end and midrange markets. Kuo predicted last month that Apple was planning to launch three new iPhones next year.
