KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that there will be three models, stating he predicts, "6.5-inch and 5.8-inch OLED models and a 6.1-inch TFT-LCD model, all equipped with a full-screen design and TrueDepth Camera (front 3D sensing), as with iPhone X".
That's a lot of colors and options for consumers.
The current iPhone X, which starts at $999, is available only in black and white.
Kuo also mentions the 6.1-inch LED iPhone, which will supposedly come in a larger color range with the bolder color choices of blue and orange alongside the staple red, grey and white variants too. After years of skirting the USB based charging standards for its iPhones, Apple seems to have finally conceded its ground and let the popular new Type-C USB cable take over the charging dominion in its upcoming phones.
In order to get the LCD handset to that price level, the company is obviously eschewing OLED.
Willian Focused On Brazil, Not Barcelona Rumors
However, the Brazilian who is at the 2018 World Cup with his country, says he will talk about his future after the tournament.
It's important to note that these are just reports; nothing has been confirmed by Apple yet.
Some iPod models were available in as many as nine different colors.
Ultimately, Kuo told investors that things are looking up for Apple, according to 9to5Mac.
He expects the cheaper $699 LCD iPhone to account for 55 percent of the total sales when the 2018 iPhone series is first launched.
When it's all said and done, Kuo predicted, Apple will sell a whopping 70 million new iPhones in the fourth quarter, alone. In light of all this, it makes sense for all manufacturers of smartphones and laptops to adapt to a new universal standard of charging and data transfer cable, an idea to which all but Apple seemed to be open. They'll likely hit store shelves soon after.
