KGI Securities Analyst Talks About 2018 iPhones

It seems like it is never too early to start talking about next-generation smartphones. Apple has just launched the iPhone X, and iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are available for a few months now. The well-known KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has now shared his opinion about Apple's new lineup of iPhones that will be unveiled in 2018.

According to him, Apple is working on three new iPhones in 2018. Two of them will have OLED displays, while the third will come with LCD panel. The OLED-based iPhones will have 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch displays respectively, while the bezel-less LCD model should sport a 6.1-inch screen.

We believe the major hardware difference in the two new OLED models is size, in a bid to satisfy various needs of the high-end market. The new TFT-LCD model will differ significantly from the OLED models in hardware and design specs (for instance, the PPI will be lower). The primary selling points of the TFT-LCD model may be the innovative user experience of an integrated full-screen design and 3D sensing with a lower price tag (we expect it will likely be US$649-749).
