MacRumors reports that KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has today issued a research note focusing particularly on the 6.1-inch iPhone that Kuo says Apple will be launching this year, alongside two OLED models (2018’s iPhone X and iPhone X Plus, if you will).
Kuo says the 6.1-inch, non-OLED phone will be priced somewhere between $700 and $800, and will have an LCD display, aluminium frame, single-lens rear camera, and no 3D Touch. This supports previous rumours that all three 2018 iPhone models will use Face ID.
Kuo also said that the 6.1-inch phone will have a standard, non-stacked logic board and rectangular battery pack, just like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, rather than the iPhone X’s stacked logic board and L-shaped battery pack.
As to when the 6.1-inch iPhone might be released, Kuo says that the phone’s development is already “slightly behind” the two OLED models, but he thinks that means that it could “enjoy extended longevity into the 1H19F, boosting slow season outlook.”
In fact, Kuo thinks that this new phone will be so popular that it will account for approximately 50% of the 2018 iPhone line-up’s shipments, and will be strong all the way into 2019.
