Apple to Release LCD iPhone With Metal Back Next Year?

Apple to Release LCD iPhone With Metal Back Next Year?

Another source claimed that Casetek has already been trying out new casings for the LCD.

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.

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. It's believed that it's harder for Apple to produce additional color options in the glass back design of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, hence why this year's models are available in fewer color variations than last year's. The source also said Apple is tentatively planning two new handsets equipped with organic light-emitting diode displays.

Prosecutor Jared Fishman said the hearing has already gone on for three days and that the Scott family wants to move on. He analyzed the cell phone video of the shooting for the defense and showed blurred still images of the video in court.

Nikkie also told that new iPhone will be assembled by a new manufacturer. An industry executive said that Pegatron and Casetek may be able to integrate their offerings for iPhone orders next year by virtue of their close links, much like Foxconn does with its own metal frame and casing production unit. Nikkei has learned that for these two handsets, Apple has chosen to use OLED screens. A new Nikkei report is now here to fill in some more details on the first. 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".

Nikkei revealed that the low cost of iPhone would be due to usage of LCD display instead of OLED which is most expensive. It would be a shocker if the tech giant confirmed or denied any of the rumored specs or features of the 2018 lineup at this point.

Apple is reportedly working on a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone that's scheduled for release in 2018.
