Apple developing 6.1-inch LCD iPhone with metal back case

Latest consumer report ranks the iPhone 8 over the iPhone X Rumored 2018 iPhone X Plus with 6.5-inch OLED Screen to Feature Dual SIM Support

"The 6.1-inch LCD model will likely sport a metal back [like older iPhone handsets] and will come in several colors", the source was quoted as saying.

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. People were quick to judge Apple's decision as displays on iPhones are easily prone to damage, and now there's glass on both sides only to increase that risk. The analysts also said that Apple's 2018 iPhones may offer as much as 512GB of storage, and the iPhone X Plus version will support two SIM cards. The device is expected to cost less than the iPhone X successor, for it is sporting a liquid crystal display. Casetek, a subsidiary of iPhone 8 manufacturer Pegatron Corp., could be selected to make the LCD iPhone. The benefits of OLED displays can be extended to moulding into curved screens and even foldable displays, which can be useful in the future iPhones. The more affordable price may mean the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be discontinued.

Apple is rumored to be planning to release three new iPhones next year, according to a report given to investors by analysts at Nomura, a Japanese financial firm.

A different source disclosed that Casetek is already trying out new casings for the LCD model in hopes that it would be chosen to supply the back case for the 6.1-inch iPhone.

When asked if he would "prod" Islamabad to take more action, he replied: "That's not the way I deal with issues". We are still suffering very badly from the Afghan war. "Nobody wants peace in Afghanistan more than Pakistan".

NIkkei's report does not mention the design of the phones' front panel.

Kuo has also claimed that the 6.1-inch iPhone would come with a lower-resolution display. 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.

The LCD iPhone, meanwhile, will cost between $650 and $900.

Opting to not use OLED displays for all of its iPhones next year makes sense for Apple and will ensure the company is not completely dependant on rival Samsung Electronics Co.
