OLED screen production for 2018 iPhone releases expected to start in May

He also pointed out to the longer shelf lives of iPhones as a possible reason for the growth in sales figures for the iPhone X. Apple which has eight out of top 10 smartphones, including its three-year-old models, now generates the most profits compared to current competing smartphones from other OEMs.

Apple is rumored to launch three new iPhone models in 2018: 5.8 inch iPhone X refresh, 6.1 inch LCD model and the other 6.5 inch iPhone X Plus OLED model.

Although it may feel like the iPhone X launched just recently, Samsung is reportedly kickstarting OLED panel production for two of this fall's iPhone models, including a 5.8-inch "iPhone X 2" and a 6.5-inch "iPhone X Plus". Ming-chi Kuo has also previously mentioned that the upcoming iPhone models will utilize Intel's XMM7560 and Qualcomm Snapdragon X20 modems to allow for simultaneous connection with both SIM cards. The single SIM model could retail for anything between US$ 550 and US$ 650, while the dual-SIM model would sell for between US$ 650 and US$ 750.

The 6.1 inch iPhone from Apple still lies in the future.

According to the current news, Apple has registered 11 new iPhones that will run iOS 11: A1920, A1921, A1984, A2097, A2098, A2099, A2101, A2103, A2104, A2105 and A2106.

Manchester City dominate Premier League team of the year
Marcos Alonso hasn't been able to replicate the form of his debut season with Chelsea way off the pace this year. Kane (25 goals) and Aguero (21 goals) are second and third on the league scoring chart.

Given that, expect the iPhone SE 2 to keep the same design, screen, and Touch ID but pack Apple's A10 Fusion SoC, the same used in the iPhone 7, being supported with 2GB RAM with 32GB and 128GB storage capacity options.

We don't imagine western customers will see a massive benefit from the rumoured dual SIM iPhones, but the rumour points towards Apple getting much more serious about developing markets, where its premium-priced handsets aren't as popular as they are elsewhere. The X SE is expected to cost $799 - a $100 increase from the iPhone 8 price tag.

Interestingly, there are also reports that Apple is working on several iPhone models and have registered those model numbers with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), a Russian-language regulatory organisation. So, unlike the next flagship, the iPhone SE can drop any time. Speculation indicates these will be the various iterations of an iPhone SE. Plans for a second version of the LCD iPhone are said to exist with a single-SIM solution for other countries, likely where carriers exert more control.

Apple's latest smartphone is performing better financially than hundreds of rival Android devices. There are also reports of an iPhone X like iPhone with an LCD display.
