Analyst predicts two OLED models, one LCD model for all-bezel-less 2018 iPhones

Well-connected KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is predicting a larger OLED iPhone and a bezel-less LCD iPhone will join a device similar to the iPhone X to round out Apple’s 2018 three-device offering, AppleInsider reports. Kuo expects Apple to release an updated 5.8” OLED iPhone with the same footprint and general appearance as the iPhone X alongside a 6.5” version that will likely serve as a sort of “iPhone X Plus.” But with the ballooning cost of the premium devices in mind, the company is also rumored to be working on a 6.1” LCD iPhone that mimics the bezel-less appearance of the iPhone X in a slightly larger size and with a lower-resolution display. That device would likely come in at a $650-$750 price range while still featuring Face ID and improved cameras.
