Apple's iPhone X 'isn't as good as iPhone 8', tests find

Apple's iPhone X 'isn't as good as iPhone 8', tests find”

Apple has in the past used both Samsung and LG for its LCD panels in both iOS devices and Macs. This is in spite of Apple's decision to move forward with OLED screens for its flagship handsets. The metallic backs would be "available in several colors", which reminds us of the hard-plastic encased iPhone 5c, though the new iPhone would measure 6.1 inches, much larger than that 4-inch model. While the new handset will likely be more durable, with less glass to shatter accidentally, it may drop the ability to wirelessly charge.

Regarding the OLED supply deal for Apple's iPhone X, nothing has been set in detail. An industry executive said that Pegatron and Casetek may be able to integrate their offerings for iPhone orders next year by virtue of their link to each other, like Foxconn which has its own metal frame and casing production unit. Nikkei says Apple is reluctant to switch entirely to OLED in 2018 due to the fear of becoming over-reliant on Samsung.

First spotted by GizmoChina, Nomura claims that LCD display iPhone which is expected to launch in 2018 will feature an edge-to-edge design similar to the iPhone X. There will be a single camera setup on the rear and is also expected to come with FaceID feature.

While iPhone rumors are a dime a dozen, especially this soon after a brand new release, it's worth noting that the Nikkei report aligns up nicely with a previous research note from Ming-Chi Kuo, largely considered the most accurate Apple analyst on the planet.

The OLED phone will reportedly come with a 5.8-inch display and will come as a sequel to the iPhone X. Additional reports from Nikkei and Nomura Securities Co. Other items that Kuo has talked about on the smartphones include all three having a full-screen edge-to-edge design and a TrueDepth camera like what is found in the iPhone X today. The display on the phone is expected to feature a 6.1-inch tall TFT LCD display. This of course explains why the device is rumored to be a low-cost entry built for low-end and midrange markets.
