Recent reports from well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple is working on three distinct new iPhones including a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone and two devices with OLED screens, a 5.8-inch iPhone X successor and a "Plus" size 6.5-inch iPhone X. Apple is now "leaning toward" removing the 6.1-inch OLED iPhone from the mix and sticking with a 6.5-inch OLED.

"However, Apple has not yet made the final decision so there is still a chance that the vendor may come up with another combination", Lin added.

Taiwanese publication Digitimes, which is known for its coverage of Apple's supply chain, claims to have more details for the company's 2018 iPhone lineup.

Reports also hint that the upcoming iPhone 2018 device without the 3D Touch feature will be packed with a regular non-stacked logic motherboard and a rectangular battery.

30/11/17: Apple is reportedly developing in-house power management chips that could debut in next year's iPhones, according to a report at Nikkei.

The upgraded iPhone X will have a 5.8-inch screen, the iPhone X Plus will have a 6.5-inch screen, and the third model will have a 6.1-inch screen.

"The A3 plant is specially created to supply panels to Apple only". In fact, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that one of the iPhone 2018 models arriving this year will not have 3D Touch, MacRumors reported. It's also the cheapest iPhone you can buy from Apple. It would be flanked by the two aforementioned LCD models. Apple has not provided any confirmation on this observation, but in any case, it is apparently moving ahead with three iPhone models this year, all with iPhone X elements.

But Digitimes says that Apple may go forward with a different mixup. "The primary selling points of the TFT-LCD model may be the innovative user experience of an integrated full-screen design and 3D sensing with a lower price tag (we expect it will likely be US$649-749)".

Kuo also suggested that Apple will have a lot more of the "new" iPhones available at launch when compared to the 80 million iPhone units shipped in the second half of this year.
