2017 has been a good year for Apple, with their stocks reaching an all-time high after the iPhone X launch. It’s because people seem to really love the iPhone X, the first iPhone with a bezel-less AMOLED display. And Apple is trying to capitalize on their current success, with talks of three new iPhones in 2018.
2017 did see three iPhones, but the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus didn’t quite share the same success as it’s bezel-less sibling. So the three iPhones in 2018 will feature the same new bezel-less design with the controversial notch up top. With so much complains about the notch, I really hope Apple removes it and bring something innovative.
The 5.8-inch iPhone, the biggest screen real-estate on iPhone as of now, will be the smallest next year. There are plans for two more iPhones with even bigger displays. One with a 6.1-inch screen and the other with a 6.5-inch display.
The 5.8 and 6.5-inch screens will enjoy the OLED technology, whereas the 6.1-inch iPhone will come out with an LCD panel. This implies that, although a huge display, the 6.1-inch iPhone will likely be an entry-level smartphone from Apple for 2018. It will also have the lowest pixel density of around 330 PPI and will carry $650-$750 price tag. Other factors might also come into play for the low price of 6.1-inch iPhone.
The 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch iPhones will feature the same OLED panels with a pixel density of 458 PPI and 500 PPI respectively. All three of the iPhones will also incorporate the on-screen fingerprint sensor which was supposed to come with the current iPhone X. So, with the current pricing strategies, the 6.5 inch iPhone will comfortably cross the $1000 price tag.
None of this news has been confirmed by any official sources and it’s all based on the leaks that have surfaced on the internet. Some of this won’t actually pan out. But it will be exciting to see a cheaper and bigger iPhone. Making big waves will obviously be the larger 6.5-inch iPhone. So what do you think of a 6.5-inch iPhone with a notch(again) making it’s way to production? Let us know in the comments section!
