Which 2018 iPhone are you most likely to get?

Kuo believes that all three of these new handsets will follow in the same form factor as the iPhone X, with an edge-to-edge, notched screen design.

In terms of optics, for the first time, Apple uses a dual 12 MP cameras with dual tone quad LED flash with 4K video recording capability up to 60 frames per second and slow motion 240 frames per seconds 1080p resolution.

"At the moment, the largest iPhone screen is on the iPhone 8 Pls, which boasts a 5.5" screen.

Our advice to prospective iPhone X buyers is simple: Get the screen guard along with the shell cover during purchase of the device.

The sequel to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will also be bezel-free, according to the analyst, but with LCD tech rather than the more expensive OLED tech powering the display. Do you purchase now?

Apple will also launch a successor to the iPhone X with a 5.8-inch OLED screen, according to the report. And that drop sets new records for fix costs as well.

The research note didn't address potential pricing on each model but did suggest the LCD variant could sell for between $649 and $749. I don't know what's happening as different flagship devices are suffering from different problems one after the other. For example, the PPI will be considerably lower. The new TFT-LCD model will differ significantly from the OLED models in hardware and design specs (for instance, the PPI will be lower).

With upwards of 120 million units expected to ship in the second half of next year, KGI describes next year's lineup at the real super-cycle for iPhone sales. One such report claimed that the iPhone X showed this problem at a temperature of -20°C, which caused only 20 percent of the touch inputs on the screen to be detected.

It's no surprise that Apple will release new models next year, but it is surprising to have this information so early after the iPhone X being released.

The iPhone X comes with a double speaker front-facing earpiece which combines with the speakers at the bottom of the device to deliver stereo sound. We may even see this design appearing on the iPad devices too. Many users have shared their concern about this defect on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Apple official forums.
