Further considerations of the phone come from LG as Apple a year ago invested around $ 3 billion for making OLED displays for the company.
APPLE plans to release the largest iPhone ever this year, along with two additional handsets: an upgraded version of the iPhone X, and a cheaper model with the flagship's key features.
The report from The Mobile Indian also indicates that the biggest iPhone device which Apple is now working on will carry a mammoth display of a 6.5-inch size model. The Cupertino-based giant had started using OLED display with iPhone X. Also, all the three iPhones will feature a TrueDepth camera for Face ID.
Citing "people familiar with the products" who spoke anonymously, the publication claimed Apple is already running production tests with suppliers involving all three new iPhones. But with Apple still struggling in China, it needs to sell the sizzles while keeping the price below $1,000.
Gurman says that Apple is testing prototypes of the larger variant with a display resolution of 2688 x 1242 pixels. Allowing apple to cater to markets with a demand for more budget devices.
When Apple jumped from a 4-inch display to 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch display model in the year 2014, the company saw a huge increase in numbers of iPhone customers. Still, Apple may ultimately decide not to proceed with the color.
It is considering releasing a dual-SIM variant as well. However, it might just wait for e-SIM tech to take off.
Like the iPhone X, all three iPhones will have Face ID, curved edge displays and of course, the top front notch that got everyone talking.
In a note seen by 9to5Mac, KGI suggests that Apple's mooted 6.1-inch iPhone X will "use slightly less premium components" than the iPhone X, such as an aluminium frame instead of stainless steel.
Apple's current iPhone lineup includes the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus though are iterative updates with a design similar to iPhone 6 launched way back in 2014.
Apple has tried selling cheaper phones in the past with poor results.
