Last year, Apple had launched three smartphones namely, the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. The iPhone X arrived as the first OLED display phone from the company, while the other models came with LCD panel. Rumors that have started swirling since the last quarter of 2017 claim that the Cupertino company would be releasing two OLED iPhones and one LCD iPhone this year. However, fresh information claims that Apple would be releasing two LCD iPhones and one OLED iPhone like last year.
Samsung Display has been the sole supplier of OLED panels for the 5.8-inch iPhone X. A recent report has revealed that the first OLED iPhone has met lackluster sales because of which Samsung has reduced the production of OLED panels by 10 percent. Also, reports are claiming that the South Korean company has temporarily halted its plan of strategy of beginning a huge OLED plant in Vietnam.
According to a senior analyst with Digitimes Research, Apple is currently working on four iPhones. However, it will be launching only of three of them in the market. The four iPhones that are reportedly in works feature 5.7-inch to 5.8-inch LCD display, a larger 6-inch to 6.1-inch LCD display, a 6-inch to 6.1-inch OLED display and 6.4-inch to 6.5-inch OLED display.
All the iPhone models that are said to be in works carry support wireless charging. The Cupertino company is also reportedly testing TrueDepth Camera and Face ID features for these iPhones. Even though the Cupertino company wanted to release two OLED iPhones and one LCD iPhones, fresh information suggests that the company has decided to release only OLED iPhone alongside two LCD models in 2018. Apple is yet to make a final decision on the different iPhones it will be launching this year.
Apart from the three high-end iPhones, the Cupertino company is also rumored to debut a low budget iPhone SE 2 smartphone. Recent reports have suggested that the second-generation iPhone SE 2 would be unveiled in May or in June through the Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC). The company is also expected to debut the 2018 iPad Pro alongside it. The iPhone SE 2 is also rumored to arrive with support for wireless charging. However, it will be lacking TrueDepth Camera and Face ID. The high-end iPhones are expected to get official in September this year.
