Apple might move back to metal for one iPhone 9 model

Latest consumer report ranks the iPhone 8 over the iPhone X

The Korean company is the sole supplier of OLED displays for the iPhone X. Apple will maintain a lineup of LCD iPhones until it has another supplier of OLED screens. The next-generation LCD iPhone is expected to cost less than the iPhone X as the company will also be introducing a new OLED model at around 6.5-inches as per Ming-Chi-Kuo.

That budget LCD model with the metal back is said to come in several colors like the existing aluminum iPhones. Meanwhile, the iPhone X only comes in Silver or Space Gray and the iPhone 8 in Silver, Spacer Gray, and Gold. Pegatron is now the assembler of the iPhone 8, so both Casetek and Pegatron are hoping that Apple would ask them to integrate the services they offer for iPhone orders in 2018. The only difference is Kuo's prediction that the largest model for 2018 would come with a 6.5-inch OLED display, and it could be given the moniker of "iPhone X Plus".

"We think the focus for 2H18F new iPhones is to optimize those technologies in terms of performance and costs and adopt a broader iPhone portfolio, rather than bring in more significant technology changes into new iPhones", the Nomura note reads. According to Nikkei, the Cupertino based tech giant is working on a 6.1-inch handset with LCD an display instead of an OLED panel. The benefits of OLED displays can be extended to moulding into curved screens and even foldable displays, which can be useful in the future iPhones. The report stated that LG Display was in the process of setting up production equipment in order to supply Apple with some 60 million OLED panels, with expectations being that production would start around June 2018. Other items that Kuo has talked about on the smartphones include all three having a full-screen edge-to-edge design and a TrueDepth camera like what is found in the iPhone X today. Nikkei also revealed that the final teaser of Apple claimed to launch iPhone X plus in 2018. The LCD iPhone, in contrast, will sell at a lower price point ($650-$750) and have a lower pixel density (320-330ppi). So it's best to take all these rumors with a grain of salt.
