Ever since Apple announced the Plus series for iPhones, people expected the company to increase the number of iPhones per year. Apple finally did that, with three new iPhones last year, while 2016 saw the introduction of a smaller iPhone SE (bringing the total number to three that year). Now, the company is said to be pushing this number up to four for 2018. Reports say Apple will have two LCD models for the iPhone, along with two OLED models, aimed at different price tiers.
Apple is planning to have two LCD models for the iPhone, along with two OLED models, aimed at different price tiers.
According to DigiTimes, the company is going to have there will be a 5.7/5.8-inch LCD model, and another 6.0/6.1-inch version this year. There are two other 6.4/6.5-inch OLED models in production as well. The publication says three of these models will actually make it to market, meaning Apple could be taking the same approach as 2017. Apple launched the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X last year.
While that may turn out to be true, some reports indicate that an iPhone SE2 is in the works. This one is, of course, aimed at people who don’t want those big screens and prefer their phones to be compact. Apparently, the iPhone SE2 will also have the 3D depth sensing technology, to include FaceID. All of Apple’s 2018 iPhones should ideally include this technology any way.
