It is expected that Apple will launch three models of 5.8-inch OLED display and smaller LCD display this year.
Citing the Nikkei Asia review, Apple said it will launch three models this fall, including the 5.8-inch iPhone this fall.
Nikkei reported in October that Apple would use glass instead of a metal case on the back of 5.5-inch, 5-inch and 4.7-inch models. This is the first time Nikkei has mentioned that a 5.8-inch iPhone will be released.
Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst, also predicted that Apple will release a 5.8-inch iPhone. He argued that the iPhone will be released as a 5.8-inch display, but at the bottom, the functional area is occupied by a 5.15-inch screen area.
Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that even if he had a 5.8-inch display, the physical device would be similar in size to the 4.7-inch iPhone. This is because the bezel (border) is reduced and the home button disappears. Apple has also filed a patent for a fingerprint sensor embedded in the touchscreen.
However, OLED panel and display area, actual size still rumored, and Apple should officially classify iPhone 8 as 5.1 inch, 5.2 inch, and 5.8 inch.
"Apple is likely to remove the home button to make room for the larger display," said Mac Lumers. "The top bezel may remain thin enough to accommodate the front camera and earpiece cutout, It will disappear. "
The iPhone 8 is expected to cost about $ 1,000 for the iPhone 10th anniversary.
Nikkei predicted that China's smartphone market is slowing and that the number of users who are willing to open their purses on top-of-the-line models will decrease.
Nikkei also pointed out that Apple is pushing to launch, even though it is not ready to start producing the iPhone 8 until September due to OLED display components. Other reports said Apple is looking for OLED suppliers.
Apple will release 4.7-inch iPhone 7S and 5.5-inch iPhone 7S plus models this fall with the iPhone 8. Both models are expected to start production in July.
