With the iPhone X being in the market for over a week, it has made all sorts of headlines. While the majority response has tilted towards the positive especially given the high demand for the device, some users have had negative experiences, particularly with the display.

The iPhone X might have a problem with its display

Regardless of that, the iPhone X has shifted the iPhone design towards a more Samsung oriented bezel-less OLED display. This raises some interesting questions for future iPhone designs.

In a report released by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, Apple might be introducing three new phones in 2018 which would have similar features to the anniversary edition iPhone X launched this year.

Kuo believes that the three phones will just be extensions of iPhone X where one handset will be of the original size of 5.8 inches while another handset would be a larger 6.5-inch handset.

While both devices would have an OLED display, a third handset will also be launched consisting of a lower resolution display serving to those who prefer a mid-range phone.

It would reportedly have a 6.1 inch LCD.

Currently, the iPhone 8 boasts a 4.7-inch screen, the iPhone 8 Plus is 5.5 inches, and the OLED iPhone X has a 5.8-inch screen.

If this report is to be believed, the new range of phones would only have the Face ID instead of the home button and Touch ID. The phones, just like every year are expected to hit the stores near the end of the year, similar to release dates of previous iPhone models.

The lower resolution device would be priced around $650 and $750 while the OLED display devices are expected to carry the hefty iPhone X price tag.
