2018 iPhone

According to Taiwan’s Economic Daily News, Samsung will begin manufacturing OLED displays for the new iPhone X and iPhone X Plus starting next month. The timeline appears to be ahead of schedule, initially thought to only begin at the end of June.

Apple is widely rumoured to introduce a trio of smartphones in 2018 – new iPhone X, a larger iPhone X Plus and a mid-range iPhone with an LCD display and FaceID. As per Apple’s traditional timeline, the new lineup should be announced early September.

In contrast, the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X were released in a staggered manner last year. The trio were introduced in September, however, iPhone X pre-orders did not begin until 27 October.

The delayed availability of the iPhone X was rumoured to be due to production challenges with the highly-complex TrueDepth camera system that powers FaceID.

The new 2018 iPhone X will retain its 5.8-inch sized OLED display, while the iPhone X Plus is rumoured to pack a 6.5-inch OLED display. Meanwhile, the mid-range iPhone will sport a 6.1-inch LCD-based Retina Display and features the same form factor as the iPhone X. It is yet unknown what Apple will call the new generation iPhone. iPhone 9?
