Apple Reportedly Developing 6.1-Inch LCD iPhone With Metal Back Case

The 6.1-inch LCD iPhone would have a metal back panel and it will be available in multiple color options.

This report does fit more or less with Kuo's claims, however, the analyst predicts the "iPhone X Plus" model will be even larger, measuring in at 6.5 inches.

Looks like Apple is not yet ready to bid farewell to LCD.

According to analyst firm Counterpoint, Apple is expected to sell 130 million iPhone X units over the next two years, meaning that LG Display still has a chance of getting in on the action.

Sources told Nikkei that Apple was also planning to release two iPhones with OLED screens. The iPhone X is Apple's first smartphone to use the OLED technology. Nikkei says Apple is reluctant to switch entirely to OLED in 2018 due to the fear of becoming over-reliant on Samsung. Casetek, subsidiary of iPhone assembler Pagatron will win for sure as it is already testing casings for new LCD iPhone model. Rumours are rife that Apple will be launching three iPhones next year, out of which one is going to be a low-priced model with LCD display measuring 6.1 inches.

Michael Flynn said Russian Federation sanctions would be 'ripped up'
According to Cummings's letter, the witness said he met Alex Copson , Flynn's former business associate, at an inaugural event. The texts were timestamped as being sent just as President Trump was delivering his Inaugural Address, the whistleblower said.

Alongside this metal-backed iPhone, the source claims Apple is tentatively planning two new OLED handsets, one of which would be around 5.8 inches (like the iPhone X, which is now Apple's only OLED phone) and one of roughly 6.3 inches. The more affordable price may mean the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be discontinued.

Nikkei's report corroborates with predictions from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. 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.

As per usual, Apple is pretty mum in the wake of emerging rumors about its future iPhones.

Apple is reportedly working on a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone that's scheduled for release in 2018.

We're still a ways off from Apple introducing next year's iPhones, so this report should be taken with a grain of salt at this point.
