Apple iPhone 2018 display Rumours and Leaks
- Three models have been predicted
- Sizes ranging from 5.8-inches to 6.5-inches
- 18:9 aspect ratio expected for all
Apple made a move to OLED with the iPhone X so it comes as no surprise that the company is predicted to continue to offer OLED options in 2018.
According to Ming Chi-Kuo, there will be a 6.5-inch OLED model, a 5.8-inch OLED model and a 6.1-inch LCD model. The analyst shared an infographic that suggests the 6.1-inch LCD model will offer a footprint between the current iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus despite the larger screen, which would be possible should it adopt the 18:9 aspect ratio the iPhone X offers.
Kuo also predicted the 6.5-inch model would offer a pixel density of between 480 and 500ppi, the 5.8-inch will offer 458ppi, which is the same as the current iPhone X, and the 6.1-inch model would have between 320 and 330 pixels per inch. If this is the case, none of the 2018 models will offer a Quad HD resolution like the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 or LG’s V30.
It’s all predictions and guesswork for now though so if you’re all about the pixels, don’t be too disheartened just yet. Aside from pixels and size, we’d expect to see a continuation of 3D Touch on all models, the P3 wide colour gamut and Apple’s True Tone technology on some, if not all 2018 models.
