There Will Be Two Different Screen Types
Kuo also said in his November report that the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch models will retain the X-All-Screen OLED Multi-touch display is known as the Super Retina HD display, while the mid-size 6.1-inch model is a standard LCD multi-touch display with IPS technology, as are the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus Retina HD displays.  While the model below shows an almost frameless design for the LCD model, its bezels at the top and bottom must be larger than the other models to hold the LCD in place.

Apple's May Uti Lize MLCD + for the Non-OLED iPhone
This year's non-OLED iPhones may differ from conventional LCD panels and the lending technology of the
LG G7 ThinQ. Apparently Apple speculates that Apple could use the same MLCD + display panels for LG's latest flagship for its future 6.1-inch iPhone. Business Korea seems to substantiate this rumor:
According to the smartphone industry on May 9, Apple is expected to load its next 6.1-inch iPhone model with an MLCD + display using LG in its G7 ThinQ smartphone , The MLCD + display realizes a bright screen with lower power consumption than the IPS LCD display.
The transition to MLCD + makes sense, since conventional LCD panels limit the possibilities of a manufacturer to their technique. LCD displays require fragile edge connectors that run along the top or bottom of the screen, which requires thicker bezels to improve overall durability. In addition, newer MLCD + panels represent a significant improvement over their predecessor in terms of display brightness.
In summary, MLCD + adds a fourth white subpixel to the traditional red, green, and blue (RGB) subpixel mix What makes it superior brightness, clarity and efficiency over its predecessor. Of course, if you want to know more about MLCD + and the improvements that it brings to the table, please read our article on it.
An entry-level iPhone is very likely
It's starting to become more obvious that Apple will use the same strategy from its 2013 book and release a budget-friendly range of iPhones alongside its flagship models.
Street Insider reports that, according to Rosenblatt analyst Jun Zhang, the 6.1-inch iPhone equipped with a LCD could be the brainchild of the iPhone 5C and could be available in a variety of colors, including blue, yellow and pink. Zhang further substantiates this assertion:
"Since Apple releases three new models each year, we believe the company needs to differentiate the designs of the LCD model from the two high-end OLED models" [Jun Zhang]. "A sensible choice would be to add different colors."
However, this again contradicts rumors that the iPhone SE 2 could actually be the 6.1-inch model. Anyway, there is definitely some confusion about what's going on with the rumored 6.1-inch model, so it could be anything.
To add even more to this claim, a video has emerged that seems to be a dummy unit, the inexpensive 6.1-inch iPhone alongside the top-tier 6.5-inch model. Significant external differences such as the rear camera groups are clearly visible, the budget model is equipped with a single camera lens.
There Will Be More Color Options
If a new leak turns out to be true, the budget-friendly 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will come in a variety of colors in the same direction as the classic iPhone 5C. A recent report from
9to5Mac has uncovered a report by Ming-Chi Kuo predicting that the upcoming LCD iPhone will be available in a variety of colors – white, gray, red, orange and blue. The European site Consomac has recently discovered an entry by Apple in the European Economic Commission (EEC). In it, Apple lists a total of 11 iPhone models, namely A1920, A1921, A1984, A2097, A2098, A2099, A2101, A2103, A2104, A2105 and A2106.
If you notice that
A19 and A20 models have three iterations, while the model A21 is available in five variants, indicating more color options on the latter , If the rumors are believed, the A21 model will be the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone.
They will have the same notch size as the iPhone X
One improvement we hoped would arrive with this year's stack of iPhones a smaller notch. For months, there was speculation in the mobile world that Apple's iPhone 2018 model would come with noticeably smaller cuts than the 2017 iPhone X. This was supported by
reports quoting forecasts by Barclays analysts:
Based on multiple data We continue to believe that Apple will use its TrueDepth 3D sensor 2018 across the iPhone range …  We expect the sensor to evolve slightly and possibly reduce in size (ie smaller notch) and improve in specificity … and will help some Apple suppliers in 2H18 as the second generation of sensor ships in the new iPhones this year very strong growth.
Unfortunately, this probability decreases as we get closer to the official release. Famed tech leaker
Ben Geskin posted a picture of alleged glass panels for Apple's upcoming flagships, with notches roughly the same size as the iPhone X.
However, it is worth mentioning that the notch of the 6.5-inch iPhone variant is smaller in relation to the overall size due to its large screen and has a thinner aperture overall. So, if a smaller notch is one of your must-haves when considering your next iPhone purchase, then the upcoming 6.5-inch OLED iPhone is for you.

3D touch might leak on some devices
Apple plans 3D Touch – at least for the 6.1-inch LCD-equipped iPhone – no longer keeping production costs to a minimum and creating space for the implementation of new technologies. According to
Cult of Mac, industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple will remove 3D Touch on at least one of the three flagship iPhones to be released later this year.
Ming-Chi Kuo added that the 6.1 The iPhone will include a new technology that makes the LCD screen lighter and more resistant. The new CGS (Cover Glass Sensor) process integrates the touch sensor into the glass itself, moving away from the traditional way of being integrated into the display.
The new CGS process will do much to make screens more resistant to impact and scratches, but also cost more to produce. That's why Apple will sacrifice 3D Touch, starting with the 6.1-inch iPhone, and will eventually leak out as it is standardized for all iPhones that move forward – when Ming-Chi Kuo's prediction occurs.
The 6.5-inch iPhone has an iPad-like landscape mode
Thanks to their larger screens, iPhone Plus variants from the 6 Plus are more like a native App UI, comparable to a mini-iPad And, thanks to the
iOS 12 Beta 5, it seems like this feature will be transferred to the upcoming 6.5-inch iPhone.
The ingenious people of iHelpBR have this feature on iOS Simulator discovered on the latest iOS 12 Beta and Xcode 10. In it, they optimized the resolution to 2688 x 1242 – the OLED-equipped 6.5-inch iPhone's approximate screen resolution – and turned it into landscape mode They confirmed the presence of iPad-like enhancements to native app UIs, such as multi-window view in messages and contacts.

The official names are only guesses
The official name of the next generation is still unknown. Apple may very well decide to reinstate the interim S line of devices after the first decade of its existence is in its rearview mirror. If that's the case, maybe we're looking at an iPhone XS and iPhone XS Plus, but where is the third model?
Apple could find some names for these three models. We still need to be in a situation like this where there is a model number jump, so there's less of a chance that any of these devices will be called an iPhone 9. Nevertheless, here are some possible combinations, in order from 5.8 inches (the genuine X successor) to 6.5-inch (the plus model) to 6.1-inch (a cheaper model).
iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus, iPhone 9
iPhone XS, iPhone 9 Plus, iPhone 9  iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Plus, iPhone 11S
iPhone XS, iPhone 11 Plus, iPhone 11  iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus, iPhone 11
iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Plus, iPhone 11
iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus, iPhone XC
iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Plus, iPhone 11C
iPhone XS, iPhone X Plus, iPhone XL
iPhone X Plus, iPhone Xc, iPhone Xs
You could end up with one of those last four Sets of names go as the "plus" -size model looks to duplicate much of the smaller X-successor. This brings us out with the nerd, the LCD version, where the "C" could mean "cost" or "cheap," though they might come out with a different letter to label it differently, such as "L" for "LCD ".
Reversing Cameras May Have 6P Lens TrueDepth Systems
The TrueDepth feature of the iPhone X's selfie camera may also find its way to the rear view camera. According to
GSMArena on November 14th, from 2019, iPhones will be carrying a rear-facing 3D sensor to enhance Apple's ARKit and allow infinitely more accurate range measurements than the current camera setup estimates.
The company is said to have spoken to several suppliers and evaluated its options.
Even if that seems far away, it is also quite possible that Apple will be able to do so in time for at least one or two of the coming year 2018. I mean, Apple's Animojis will only keep us busy for so long.

In another statement by Kuo on November 2, the 2018 iPhones will likely use the same 6P lens design that is currently found on the iPhone X instead of using something more advanced. The term 6P refers to a 6-element lens – 6 lenses made of plastic.
With its rear camera specifications, the iPhone X has found a phenomenal balance between image quality and form factor design, in our opinion, how far we have come today technologically. Switching from a 6P lens to a 7P lens or a 2G3P hybrid lens with a camera model design that is similar to the iPhone X would, in our opinion, only result in limited improvements in aperture performance.
– Ming-Chi Kuo, KGI Securities 19659024] Switching to more recent 7P or hybrid lens technology would burden the iPhone 2018 supply chain, which is not worth the slight improvements described above. In the end, Kuo believes that "Apple intends to avoid making manufacturing decisions that could cause this year's sale of the iPhone X to recur with limited supply."

The 6.5 inch iPhone & # 39; May & # 39; Have Triple Camera Setup
Huawei P20 Pro was the first big smartphone with a rear camera with three modules, and it looks like Apple could follow suit and use the same technology for its highest-level model use. According to Forbes, the upcoming iPhone X Plus is likely to have a three lens setup for the rearview camera to further enhance photography.

While the details are currently unknown, the third camera module can be used to optimize low-light photography and Fix a weak point. As large as the cameras of the iPhone X are, it is still a long way when taking pictures in low light, which is even more apparent compared to the Google Pixel 2 XL.
However, a three-pronged rear camera may not show until 2019. The charts referenced by Forbes, which came from an unknown accessory manufacturer, appear to show three similarly sized circles on the rear glass camera area, with a small microphone to their right. Although it is unlikely to be true to scale, this probably only indicates the same setup that the iPhone X already has with a flash between two lenses.
What we see is unlikely to be three lenses because of these leaked schematics. The accessory needs to know at least the general position of the flash, so it's probably just two lenses and one flash that are drawn – not three lenses.
Some have a faster A12 processor with 4GB of RAM  As the successor to the iPhone X, the next generation iPhones will of course use faster, more powerful processors, though it is uncertain how much of an upgrade the A12 will have over its predecessor will be. However, if a new leak is suspected, we may have a clearer picture.
The French site
iGeneration has discovered benchmark results from Geekbench 4 that identify the mysterious device as iPhone11.2 released in late June. In it, the mysterious iPhone released an average score of 4,673, 10,912 and 21,691 for single-core and multi-core performance, along with the metal-based Compute score. The processors had a fundamental frequency of 2.49 GHz.

In comparison, the iPhone X scored average ratings of 4,206, 10,128, and 15,234 for the same exact Tests, with its A11 Bionic clocking at 2.39 GHz. And while the iPhone X has 3 GB of RAM, the iPhone in question comes with 3748 MB of memory, which is about 4 GB of RAM.
Stay tuned for more rumors and leaks
That's all we have so far in terms of the yet to be named year 2018 iPhone models. Nothing was given away at WWDC 2018 so we'll probably have to wait until 12th September to know for sure. However, be sure to check back frequently as more information arrives ahead of Apple's flagship 2018 flagship.
