iPhone lovers may witness major design changes in 2018 Apple phones, says report


All the iPhone lovers who wait for the thrill to catch a glimpse of new Apple phones should be in for a surprise! According to Nikkei reports in Fortune, Apple may release a new model next year with a 6.1-inch liquid-crystal display and a metal back panel. Quoting people who have knowledge of the company’s plans, the report also states Apple may also sell iPhones featuring 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch screens that use organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology, which is available in the iPhone X and offers better resolution and more vibrant colours than LCD.

The metal version of the iPhone would come with the cheapest of the three, according to the report.

It is rumoured that Apple may launch three new iPhones next year including one with minor updates to this year’s iPhone X with a similar design. While, a second phone with the 6.3-inch screen would be Apple’s biggest smartphone ever and would also likely resemble the iPhone X, with a screen that nearly covers its face and a glass back panel.

The third version would replace this year’s iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus smartphones, which also come with metal backs and a design that includes larger bezels around the screen and a physical home button-two features Apple’s iPhone X doesn’t have.

According to the Nikkei source, keeping an LCD model will help Apple keep the price down for one of its models compared with the higher-priced OLED and glass models to attract more buyers. Apple’s iPhone X, for instance, costs $1,000 to start, while a metal-bodied iPhone 8 starts at $699.

For the time being, Apple has not announced plans to launch new iPhones, however, the rumours are already creating excitement among iPhone lovers!
