KGI analyst expects three iPhones next year, two with OLED

Apple will release three new iPhone models in 2018, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted in a note distributed to clients on Monday seen by Business Insider.

The iPhone 8 handsets are underperforming in terms of demand so far, with the iPhone X's new design and Face ID feature capturing a majority of the buzz from users. The problem wasn't visible when they first got the iPhone X, and only appeared suddenly.

Kuo added that in order to target the low-end and mid-range smartphone markets, Apple is also working on a new LCD model with a large 6.1-inch display, which will "differ significantly" from the OLED models.

To take a screenshot with the iPhone X, press and hold the only button on the right side of your phone, then press and release the volume up button on the left side. The annoying issue was reported on both the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus and was heard on some voice calls, not across all.

However, it's a little early in the cycle to make any concrete judgements on 2018 iPhone rumours, which went right up to September 2017 for the current editions.

He was injured in Italy's first game in 2010, then returned in 2014, but Italy failed to make it out of the group stage. There's regret at finishing like that, not because time passes. "We have pride, strength and we're stubborn".

Fortunately, according to customers who have contacted the company, Apple has been replacing affected iPhone X units for free.

There have also been complaints coming in from some iPhone X users living in the colder regions of the world. Why am I talking about next year's iPhones, when most people haven't had the opportunity to set eyes on the flashy $1000 iPhone X that just came out? Kuo's report detailed that the 6.1-inch LCD model may feature a lower pixel density, between 320 and 330 ppi.

One of the new phones predicted is a low-priced model that features an edge-to-edge LCD screen and TrueDepth facial recognition for between $649 and $749. It seems very likely that we'll all be tuned in to the Apple Event next year and seeing these devices being debuted.

The iPhone X is only a few weeks old but already the rumor mill is starting up about next year's iPhones.
