Apple Reportedly Developing 6.1-Inch LCD iPhone With Metal Back Case

Apple Reportedly Developing 6.1-Inch LCD iPhone With Metal Back Case

Next year's LCD iPhone is expected to be the more affordable option, with Apple also introducing a new OLED model at around 6.5-inches (KGI says 6.5-inches, Nikkei says "either 6.2 or 6.3-inches").

It is expected to arrive as a sequel to the iPhone X. There will be another OLED iPhone dubbed as "Plus" model that will carry the same specs as the forthcoming 5.8-inch OLED iPhone, but it will be housing a larger display of 6.5 inches. Apple's new iPhone will also revert to aluminium chassis that means that no wireless charging will be offered.

According to a source with knowledge of Apple's product designs, the LCD iPhone will feature a 6.1-inch bezel-less screen and a metal back. A new report from Nikkei has revealed that Apple's upcoming smartphone lineup will feature a metal back similar to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

After facing troubles with iPhone X which has been ranked even lower than iPhone 8 by Consumers Report because of its easily breakable sleek glass body, Apple is planning to change course.

Former 'prophet' of doomsday church to appear in court following Amber Alert
Dramatic video shows the rescue of two girls believed to have been abducted by their "doomsday prepper" father three months ago. Investigators say they were there for 24 hours in subfreezing temperatures and were improperly dressed with no food or water.

If Apple does use a metal back for the LCD model, Casetek, a subsidiary of Pegatron, could become a supplier.

Another source familiar with the situation said Casetek has been experimenting with new casings for the LCD-equipped iPhone. It is said to feature only a single camera at the back while the screen will be devoid of the Force Touch feature. 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". And now, there are reports that Apple will be launching three phones in 2018 as well.

Nomura has claimed that the 2018 iPhone LCD model will share the same edge-to-edge display that the current iPhone X boasts.

Kuo has also claimed that the 6.1-inch iPhone would come with a lower-resolution display. So it's best to take all these rumors with a grain of salt.
