Apple to release three iPhone X-like devices in 2018, says analyst

iPhone X in hand

Apple will launch three smartphones in 2018, according to well-regarded KGI Securities’ analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Kuo predicts Apple will release a 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch iPhone with OLED displays and a 6.1-inch LCD handset.

According to Kuo, all three devices will feature a full-screen notch design with a TrueDepth camera, similar to this year’s iPhone X. The analyst expects the 5.8-inch model will have a 458-pixel density, while the 6.5-inch iPhone X will have a pixel density in the range of 480 to 500 ppi. Additionally, he believes the 6-inch model will have a pixel density between 320 and 330 ppi.

Moreover, Kuo believes the selling point of the 6.1-inch thin-film-transistor LCD model is the TrueDepth front facing camera on an inexpensive smartphone; he expects the device to range from $649 to $749 USD ( about $826.04 to $953.31 CAD). In his report, however, Kuo doesn’t mention the price for the two OLED paneled iPhones.

In addition, the report states that all three devices will not have any sort of delays as the supply chain will be more experienced considering they produced the iPhone X.

Lastly, Kuo didn’t mention any names for any of the devices — though I’m betting on iPhone XX, iPhone XL and iPhone 11.
