After TrendForce's report from earlier this week, a new report from Economic Daily News claims the same citing "industry insiders".

The low price point of the LCD iPhone 9 will naturally attract many, a recent report suggested that Apple might sell the cheaper iPhone much later than the premium OLED iPhones.

According to TrendForce, Apple's OLED iPhones will support the Apple Pencil when they launch next month, making them the first iPhones to officially support a stylus of sorts.

The larger iPhone has a 6.5-inch bezel-less screen and is expected to have an OLED screen. Just like the iPhone X, which was released past year, the upcoming Plus-sized iPhone will have a screen notch.

As for the iPhone X and iPhone X Plus, both phones are said to have dual rear cameras, glass back and steel frame, earlier reports hinted.

Apple: Who needs a stylus?

With three new iPhones set to go on sale next month, TrendForce has been looking into the steps it believes Apple will take in order to continue to boost its average selling price, considering this is the figure that means Apple can sell fewer devices while continuing to make more money. When the Pencil launched three years ago, it only worked with the iPad Pro. Plus, it is unlikely that people will carry the Apple Pencil around with their iPhone.

It'll be interesting to see how Apple markets the Pencil for the iPhone at any rate. While the Apple Pencil is far from just a stylus, and Apple will be clear to market it as a drawing utensil, it does show how the company has grown and outlook on the market and what consumers seemingly want has changed.

Apple will unveil three new iPhones next month, including an affordable iPhone X successor with an LCD screen as well as two premium models that will have OLED displays like the iPhone X. All three devices will deliver the same core features, which means the cheapest model will be nearly as powerful and fast as the most expensive one.

Including an Apple Pencil will put the 6.5-inch iPhone in direct competition with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which will put the Apple iPhone in direct comparison with productivity tests that have until now always fallen short.
