Apple to launch an LCD iPhone with a metal case in 2018

Yordan, 07 December 2017

Apple will launch at least one iPhone with LCD in 2018, industry insiders in Japan reported. It will be one of three new flagship phones, the other two allegedly coming with OLED screens.

The inside information comes as a blessing to Sharp and Japan Display, two of the main LCD manufacturers in the market. Their shares went down massively after the iPhone X came out with an OLED screen, supplied by Samsung.

The LCD iPhone will have 6.1” screen and metal case, including the back panel. On the contrary, the other two iPhones are expected to have 6.3” and 5.8” displays, according to the same source. Having a metal body means no wireless charging, though and it seems unlikely that Apple will drop the feature so soon after it adopted it, so apply healthy skepticism to the whole thing.

Back in the summer rumors suggested that Apple might start building its in-house OLED panels next year to curb the enthusiasm and income of LG and Samsung display divisions.
