2018 iPhone lineup

Apple is set to launch a trio of iPhone models in 2018, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The “reliable” analyst predicts Apple will add an “iPhone X Plus” with a 6.5-inch OLED display, and a new 6.1-inch model with an LCD display. The two will complement the 5.8-inch OLED “iPhone X” currently in the iPhone lineup.

Kuo believes all three will feature a full-screen design and TrueDepth camera system as seen on the current iPhone X.

The analyst says the 6.1-inch model will feature a lower resolution LCD display to target the low- and mid-range markets. He estimates the price points to be between USD649 to USD749 in the US.

So, in summary, if the prediction turns out to be true, the 2018 iPhone lineup would consist of an all full screen lineup with TrueDepth camera technology.

Will this mean Apple will completely drop the iPhone 8 form factor with physical home button?

KGI expects Apple to sell upwards of 120 million units in the second half of the year.

The current iPhone X starts from USD999 (MYR5,1499) for the 64GB version, while the top-of-the-line 256GB model goes for USD1,149 (MYR5,899).

The device is Apple’s most advanced and most radically designed yet. It boasts the most powerful mobile processor the Apple A11 Bionic; the cutting-edge TrueDepth camera with FaceID, wireless charging and iOS 11. For the first time ever, Apple has adopted an OLED display on the iPhone, which DisplayMate rates the best display on any smartphone yet.
