TrendForce: Apple to introduce three new iPhone models this fall

iPhone X 2018 Series Design LEAKS In Multiple Videos

iPhone X 2018 Series Design LEAKS In Multiple Videos

They are meant to be iPhone X successors and will come in at 5.8 and 6.5 inches respectively.

In both videos there are a couple of mistakes or speculative assumptions about the iPhone names, as at this stage we really don't know what Apple plans to call the new devices following the iPhone X. There are a lot of different theories fighting it out right now. Our main problem with this piece of information is that it makes no mention of a new and redesigned Apple Pencil, and instead claims that the existing version will be compatible with 2018 OLED iPhone models.

The video clearly shows the size difference between the new iPhone X, with its 5.8-inch OLED panel, and the new iPhone X Plus, with its massive 6.5-inch OLED panel. Apart from this, we have also heard that the 2018 OLED iPhone is said to feature support for Apple Pencil, something which is only limited to Apple's iPad Pro lineup now. The iPhone-compatible Apple Pencil doesn't need to be quite as small and thin as the S Pen, but it does need to be much more holdable.

Now, when you toss in the Apple Pencil support, it's possible that Apple would be able to better compete with mid-price Android players as well as premium Samsung devices.

The more expensive iPhones are also expected to sport 4GB of RAM, while the LCD model will have 3GB.

My guess is that Apple will offer a 512 GB storage option on its AMOLED iPhones models, but Apple Pencil support will most likely be an iPad feature.

TrendForce's predictions are in line with other reports about the upcoming iPhone. Of these, the 6.1-inch variant has a single rear camera, while the other two feature dual-camera systems at the back.

As for pricing, it is believed that the LCD model will come with a $699 starting price while the OLED device will start from $899. The Galaxy Note 9 base model also starts at $1,000, while the top-end model of the handset with 512GB goes up to $1,250.

TrendForce expects all three new iPhones to offer Face ID, with only one of them sporting an LCD display. The Plus model is also expected to deliver dual-SIM support in certain markets.
