Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities said that in addition to the updated iPhone X, Apple will release a 6.5-inch smartphone with an OLED display and a 6.1-inch budget iPhone with IPS screen. This writes MacRumors.
an iPhone with a display of 5.8-inch (updated iPhone X) and 6.5-inch (presumably Plus version) will be focused on the premium segment. A smartphone with a 6.1-inch IPS screen will get cheaper materials and poor technical characteristics, unlike the top models. For example, a low value PPI. Presumably, it will cost 649-749 USD.
Kuo suggests that all three smartphone will have edge-to-edge screens and a camera system TrueDepth as iPhone X. In the second half of 2018, Apple will produce more than 120 million smartphones. Delays should not be, because Apple’s contractors will already have experience in the production of the iPhone X.
If the forecasts Kuo is correct, then next year’s flagship iPhone lineup will consist of frameless smartphones. In mid-October of 2017, Ming-Chi Kuo reported that Apple is going to abandon the Touch ID in favor of the Face ID in 2018.
