KGI: Apple to ship 100 million 6.1-inch LCD iPhones in 2018

iIf you’re not acquainted with KGI Securities’ analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he’s the one that projected that Apple is readying three new iPhones for 2018 – two OLED ones with 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch panels, and one LCD iPhone with a 6.1-inch screen.

Well, the same market analyst now says that Apple could ship up to 100 million 6.1-inch LCD iPhones before 2018 is over and at $700-$800 a pop.

If the predictions are true the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will replace the iPhone 8 as the cheapest option, while the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone will likely be the same size and weight as the iPhone X, and the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone will be the iPhone X Plus that die-hard iPhone Plus fans are waiting for.

Some believe that the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will lack Face ID and 3D Touch and will come with less RAM to keep price lower.

Others believe that all three 2018 iPhones will have 19.5:9 displays and Face ID.
