Whats New in iPhone 2018

In 2018, Apple is planning to continue on with its three iPhone lineup, introducing three new iPhones. The first is said to be a second-generation version of the iPhone X, with the same 5.8-inch OLED display, while the second can be thought of as an “iPhone X Plus” with a larger 6.5-inch OLED display.
Along with these two OLED iPhones, which will undoubtedly be just as expensive as the current iPhone X, Apple is planning to introduce a new, more affordable 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display. This device could possibly use a Full Active LCD display, which would offer improved technology over the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus display.
All three of the new iPhones will feature an edge-to-edge screen with the same nearly non-existent bezels of the iPhone X, and all will be equipped with a TrueDepth camera system that supports Face ID. That means 2018 will mark the official end of the Home button and the Touch ID fingerprint sensor in Apple’s flagship iPhone lineup.
While the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones in 2018 will be outfitted with all the bells and whistles of the iPhone X, Apple is going to cut some features from the rumored 6.1-inch model to keep costs low. That device will have an aluminum frame instead of a stainless steel frame, it may not come equipped with wireless charging, it will have a single lens-rear camera, and the display may not support 3D Touch.
It’s not enough that the new iPhone X is only a few months old; rumors about the next iPhone are already starting to fly. We’ll keep track of what’s been said and what seems feasible in this article so you can keep up with the latest iPhone gossip.
By eliminating these features, Apple is expected to be able to sell the device for $700 to $800, putting it on par with the more affordable iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. We don’t know what the OLED iPhones will be priced at, but $999 for the next-generation 5.8-inch model is a solid guess, as is $1,099 for the 6.5-inch model.
Comparatively, the 5.8 and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones are expected to continue to offer dual-lens rear cameras and they may include 4GB RAM. The larger model will, of course, support a larger battery for longer battery life, and it could include dual-SIM support for easier carrier switching and a new gold color option.
