Apple is expected to grow its lineup of iPhone X models to three in 2018, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
This year, Apple opted to release just a single model of the iPhone X alongside the standard iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. Next year, Kuo believes Apple will release a trio of iPhone X models: the second-generation of the 5.8-inch model currently available, a bigger 6.5-inch OLED model and a 6.1-inch LCD model with an edge-to-edge display.
All three models will feature the same design as the iPhone X, with the edge-to-edge display, stainless steel band and vertical dual camera. The 6.1-inch LCD iPhone model is expected to have a display with slightly less resolution somewhere between 320-330 pixels per inch.
Kuo’s exceptions line up with previous reports that forecasted Apple to bring back an LCD iPhone model next year even though it’s already adopting OLED display technology. This is likely to offset Apple’s dependency on Samsung, its sole OLED display supplier, which also lessens the strain on the amount of OLED panels it will need manufactured.
The LCD iPhone X model will target the mid-tier market, coming in around $649 to $749. The second generation 5.8-inch iPhone X and bigger 6.5-inch iPhone X model will come in around the $1,000 price point.
It’s still early on in Apple’s plans for 2018. Things may change dramatically from now to when the next iPhones are announced in September. Whatever Apple’s plans are for its next generation of iPhone, it’s looking like the end of the home button is near.
