Nothing has been officially confirmed by Apple, but the launch of one or more of these three new products would make sense.
Some reports at the time indicate trial production of finished iPhone X units did not start until late August, a process that normally concludes in July. Naturally, the 5.85-inch model, containing adopted components with lower-level specifications or lower capacities than those of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone with LPDDR memory, is expected to be the cheapest one among these three next-generation Apple OLED iPhone models.
Lin further goes on to say that previously Apple had planned to use LCD panel for the 5.85-inch iPhone.
Luke Lin also added that Apple took fewer OLED displays from Samsung, owing to the weak demand for the iPhone X. However, he added that Apple reached an agreement with Samsung Display ending the contract with satisfactory terms.
Geelani paves way for leadership change, appoints long-time aide Sehrai as chairperson
Geelani, who represented the Jamaat in the Hurriyat, was seen as a hardliner which didn't go down well with the former. Observers say that Geelani's departure from active politics would have far-reaching impact on the politics of Kashmir.
According to a report in Taiwanese publication Digitimes, Apple could launch a 5.85-inch OLED iPhone that would be cheaper to manufacture than the original iPhone X (REVIEW). In a way, Apple thinks that meeting the delivery schedule for the new phones could help in ensuring better market performance compared to last year's iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus.
It would make sense for the company to do so as it would want to prevent a repeat of the delays and supply shortages that it had to bear with for the iPhone X past year. A new report is claiming that Apple will enter trial production of its 2018 iPhones in the second quarter. However, the project was suspended in mid-February and seems to have been completely scrapped.
Apple now designs chips for its mobile devices and a move into displays could hurt screen makers like Samsung Electronics Co, Japan Display Inc, Sharp Corp and LG Display Co in the long term. However, news of the shift from OLED to in-house displays has roiled stocks of Apple's existing screen suppliers across Asia. All three devices, however, are expected to sport iPhone X-like design. It is unlikely that the technology will reach an iPhone for at least three to five years as MicroLED screens are more hard to produce than the current displays, Bloomberg said. Now a new report has surfaced online suggesting price of the 5.8-inch variant.
It is rumored that the affordable version might be a new iPhone SE, a series we haven't seen since 2016. While the display on the iPhone X is extremely color accurate, it's still not quite flawless.
