Apple to launch 6.1-inch LCD iPhone with metal back in 2018

Apple to launch 6.1-inch LCD iPhone with metal back in 2018

"The 6.1-inch LCD model will likely sport a metal back [like older iPhone handsets] and will come in several colors", the source was quoted as saying.

We have earlier covered the issue and had reported that Apple was already working on two new OLED models for 2018.

First spotted by GizmoChina, Nomura claims that LCD display iPhone which is expected to launch in 2018 will feature an edge-to-edge design similar to the iPhone X. There will be a single camera setup on the rear and is also expected to come with FaceID feature. A new report fresh from Japan is claiming that the Cupertino giant is in the process of developing a 6.1-inch handset with LCD screen.

Apple is likely to release another new iPhone with a liquid crystal display next year, according to a source privy to the company's product designs.

Apple is also rumored to be launching two other iPhone moels next year.

The same source revealed that Pegatron subsidiary Casetek could become the supplier of the metal backs for the 6.1-inch iPhone units.

Another source familiar with the situation said Casetek has been experimenting with new casings for the LCD-equipped iPhone. It is said to be the most cheapest iPhone of Apple ever.

That's the word from a new report on Business Insider, citing supply chain sources, backing up claims made by analyst Ming Chi Kuo last month.

Nikkei revealed that the low cost of iPhone would be due to usage of LCD display instead of OLED which is most expensive. While the other two handsets with 5.8 and the 6.3-inch screen will feature OLED displays and metallic back.

This will also reduce dependence of Apple on Samsung that is the only company to supply OLED displays in bulk to meet iPhone X demand.

We're still a ways off from Apple introducing next year's iPhones, so this report should be taken with a grain of salt at this point.
