iPhone XI & iPhone XI Plus To Launch In 2018: BOTH To Have OLED

by Arvin Apsen Cell phone repair parts

Next year, Apple will introduce TWO new handsets with OLED displays, according to none other than KGI Securities analyst and prominent Apple soothsayer Ming-Chi Kuo.

The recently launched iPhone X - the 10th anniversary model - is Apple's first handset to ditch the iconic Retina IPS LCD in favour of a Samsung made OLED panel, a move which is bringing quite a lot of praise in Apple's direction if the initial wave of reviews are any measure. There's a TON of approval for the iPhone X and a big chunk of it is being aimed squarely at the enhanced display.

In a note to investors, Kuo said that he believes Apple will release two OLED based galaxy s5 screen replacement in 2018, one of which will likely be an iPhone X successor model. The other, is open to debate, but he thinks it could be a "Plus" version with a larger display and body size.

Taking this forward, what we might be looking at is essentially a return to Apple's former standard play - the iPhone X launch as part of a trio alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus being a unique one-off.

That would mean in 2018 we'd see just two iPhones launched in September. The remaining question is; what will they be called? Are we going full Roman numerals? Will it be the iPhone XI and iPhone XI Plus?

Kuo also said he expects Apple to divide the iPhone's steel surround into more parts - currenly for the samsung galaxy s5 screen replacement it is made from four components; he believes this could improve the design overall, but also enhance data transmission. He says both OLED models will feature front-facing TrueDepth cameras and Face ID, but he does not think Apple will add the same tech to the rear shooter of either. Other than this he said there will be a spec upgrade but has not gone into more detail just yet.
