Apple is priming two iPhones with OLED screens for release in 2018, each featuring a new metal frame designed to improve data transmission.
That’s according to analyst Ming Chi Kuo, whose Apple pronouncements have become the stuff of legend among tech fans. He was the first person to suggest Apple was ditching its Touch ID fingerprint scanner in favour of Face ID.
Kuo doesn’t say whether the switch to OLED will mean two updated editions of the iPhone X will be released.
However, Apple watchers believe the company could be priming a ‘Plus’ model of the iPhone X, aimed at taking on Samsung’s Galaxy Note series.
Separately, Kuo says that all new iPhones released in 2018 will make the move to Face ID, as Apple looks to drop its commitment to Touch ID.
However, he does not believe Apple will launch a TrueDepth camera on the rear of its handsets and will reserve that feature for front–facing shooters only.
Expect to hear plenty more gossip about 2018’s iPhone range in the coming months.
