LG could soon strike deal with Apple to supply OLED panels for a 2018 iPhone X sequel

Nikkie also told that new iPhone will be assembled by a new manufacturer.

Citing a source "privy to the company's product designs", Nikkei's report today claims Apple will unveil three new iPhones in 2018. The final size is yet to be agreed but its will be either 6.2 or 6.3 inches.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus sport LCD panels. Many Apple fans weren't happy with the glass back on the new iPhone models because it opens both the front and back of the device up to expensive repairs in the case of an accidental drop. The benefits of OLED displays can be extended to moulding into curved screens and even foldable displays, which can be useful in the future iPhones. Comparatively, OLED panels deliver more saturated colors and truer black tones. Casetek, subsidiary of iPhone assembler Pagatron will win for sure as it is already testing casings for new LCD iPhone model. Then again, if Apple sticks to the bezel-less design, a 5.8-inch iPhone should feel fairly close in the hand to a 4.7-inch iPhone 8, 7 or 6. Casetek has close links with its parent company. "The two OLED handsets will come in two sizes - one either 6.2 or 6.3-inches long and the other 5.8 inches", Nikkei said.

This report does fit more or less with Kuo's claims, however, the analyst predicts the "iPhone X Plus" model will be even larger, measuring in at 6.5 inches.

It will be the first high-level visit from China to India after the Dokalam standoff. The road was being built by the Chinese troops in the area also claimed by Bhutan.

According to KGI Securities, the 2018 LCD iPhone would "differ significantly" from the OLED models.

According to analyst firm Counterpoint, Apple is expected to sell 130 million iPhone X units over the next two years, meaning that LG Display still has a chance of getting in on the action. Casetek has made iPads in the past, but the 6.1-inch LCD device would be its first iPhone.

Ming-Chi Kuo told investors that the next year's LCD iPhone would borrow a few elements from the iPhone X. It would ditch the Touch ID fingerprint reader for the new TrueDepth camera that enables Face ID and Animoji.

If accurate, it means there's no escaping the notch.
