Apple advanced it in its presentation of September, the design language of the iPhone X was a look at the “Apple of the future”, and as expected, we will begin to see how this design begins to appear on other devices, such as the iPad, as well as the next iPhone.
Today the analyst of the firm KGI Securities, Ming-Chi Kuo, who is also well known for his successes when forecasting strategies of Apple, ensures that in 2018 we will see how the design of the iPhone X is extended to all the iPhone and is abandoned completely the ‘home’ button and the fingerprint sensor, Touch ID.
Two iPhone with OLED and one with LCD.
According to Kuo, in 2018 we would see three new iPhone, the difference would be that in these three devices we would not have ‘home’ button, this to make way for Face ID, in addition to screens that would take more advantage of the front of these phones.
There is talk that one of them would jump to 6.5 inches on OLED panel with a density of between 480 and 500 dpi, a kind of iPhone X Plus. While the other, also with OLED screen, would be the iPhone X update with 5.8 inches and 458 dpi.
The interesting point of this would be that Apple is planning to launch an iPhone with the design of the X but with a 6.1-inch LCD panel and a density of between 320 and 330 dpi, which would be the new iPhone entry to the range. There is even talk that its price would be between 650 and 750 dollars and seek to attack those users who are looking for an “affordable” iPhone.
In all three cases, it would have the incorporation of Face ID, although apparently the double camera would be limited only for models with an OLED panel. In addition, we must also remember that a few days ago came the rumor that Apple is working on an iPad with Face ID and “full” screen, so 2018 aims to be the year of farewell to the famous ‘home’ button.
