If the iPhone XI Plus is indeed Apple's top-selling iPhone for 2018, that may also help explain a recent report, claiming that Apple is planning to ditch its proposed 4-inch iPhone SE 2. Two of these will feature OLED displays and directly succeed the iPhone X in specifications. That's about 1.1 mm wider than the iPhone X; however, that difference may just be button protrusion.
Interestingly, the report doesn't seem to suggest if Apple's internal thinking is exclusively related to the brand new 2018 LCD device, or if the anticipation of higher LCD sales includes iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and new iPhone SE, all of which ship with an LCD panel and all of which will still be available for sale alongside the new 2018 models. However, that difference does not make a huge difference as the case for the iPhone X launched previous year fits well on the 2018 mockup as well.
The larger iPhone X Plus which has been rumoured plenty already, appears to have a 6.4-inch OLED display, rather than the 6.5-inch screen that leaks have pointed towards. Design wise, everything on the mockup looks similar to the iPhone X, including the camera placement at the back.
Finally there is a 6-inch iPhone X which is expected to be the affordable LCD model.
Do you think the 6.1-inch model will come with an OLED or an LCD display?
There have also been rumours of a smaller iPhone SE 2 (2018) which could cram in an iPhone X style edge-to-edge notch screen.
This would allow for a small phone option that still sticks to Apple's new screen tech.
