IPhone X Plus: More details emerge about plans for 2018 iPhones

Apple could also opt to go with a new supplier for the LCD model.

Nikkei's source further divulged that Apple is outfitting the LCD model with a metal back case - the same one used on the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus.

Out of the two models following suit, one will have the same screen of the iPhone X, i.e. a 5.8 inch, whereas the other model will come with a 6.5 inch display. According to Nikkei, the metallic iPhone will come in several colours, but nothing more than what the current aluminium iPhones offer. Now with the all glass iPhone 8, Apple can only offer Space Grey, Silver and Gold, meanwhile the iPhone X is limited to Space Grey and Silver.

Apple's latest flagship - iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus - came with minor design tweaks compared to their predecessors and the biggest change was the glass unibody design.


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. Analysts suggest this device could cost between $650 and $900, with Apple achieving the price cut by dropping the expensive OLED display and Force Touch tech. Nikkei has learned that for these two handsets, Apple has chosen to use OLED screens.

According to analyst firm Counterpoint, Apple is expected to sell 130 million iPhone X units over the next two years, meaning that LG Display still has a chance of getting in on the action. Kuo, however, stated that all three 2018 models would debut with full-screen, edge-to-edge displays and the TrueDepth camera system that's now featured on the 10th anniversary iPhone. A second Nikkei source said Casetek has already been "experimenting with new casings for the LCD-equipped iPhone". This of course explains why the device is rumored to be a low-cost entry built for low-end and midrange markets.

We're still a ways off from Apple introducing next year's iPhones, so this report should be taken with a grain of salt at this point.

Apple is reportedly working on a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone that's scheduled for release in 2018.
