Luxury Smartphone Manufacturer Planning LCD iPhone with a Metal Case for 2018

siliconreview Luxury Smartphone Manufacturer Planning LCD iPhone with a Metal Case for 2018

Apple is likely to release another new iPhone with a liquid crystal display next year, according to a source privy to the company’s product designs. The source also said Apple is tentatively planning two new handsets equipped with organic light-emitting diode displays.

As per a report, appeared on Nikkei’s website, it’s learnt that Apple will manufacture three new iPhones next year, including a 6.3-inch iPhone with an OLED screen.

Nikkei is a stock market index for the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

The new models will come as welcome news to suppliers across Asia, especially Sharp and Japan Display, which would have lost a significant portion of their LCD business if Apple switched entirely to OLED displays, the report states.

Apple will launch 6.3-inch and 5.8-inch iPhone variants with OLED technology, in addition to a 6.1-inch model with a traditional LCD display. The iPhone X has a 5.8-inch screen, so the 6.3-inch model would be a good deal larger, the report elaborates.

The LCD model will have a metal back, which suggests it might not pack newer technologies such as wireless charging, the report further states. Apple switched to glass panels on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X to support that feature.

Apple launched three new models this year, with iPhone X being its first model to adopt an OLED display. The company's iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are equipped with LCD screens.

All three handsets sport glass backs with either aluminum or stainless steel frames.
