 Apple Leak Reveals Radical New iPhone X

The new iPhone X is seen in the Apple Store Union Square prior to launch on November 3, 2017, in San Francisco, California  What happens after the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus? Thanks to Apples marketing slogans, we already know that the iPhone X is the future of the smartphone, so is the classic form factor dead? More than likely, with Tim Cook and his team indicating that the notch will be the new visual shorthand for Cupertinos smartphone.

It looks like the answer is another iPhone X… but cheaper

That idea comes from the latest leak from noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, and it builds on last weeks leaks around the follow-up models that would match the iPhone X. The latter are set to include a Plus version of the iPhone X with a mammoth 6.5 inch OLED screen, as well as an update to the current iPhone X that will retain the 5.8 inch OLED screen.

The new model sits curiously between these two high-end models. It is expected to have a 6.1 inch screen and follow the home-button free design of the iPhone X, as well as the required sensors to implement FaceID. That means the notch will be present, lending more credence to the idea that Apple will be placing a lot of branding power into that island of technology.

But the curious point of the 6.1 inch model is that it will use LCD technology, rather than OLED.

Just like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, its also a hedge bet against the pricey OLED handsets. With the 5.8 inch iPhone X priced at the magic thousand dollar point, a larger version is not going to be cheaper, not in the short-term. So an LCD based iPhone X is going to carry on sitting at the lower price point in the iPhone range, capturing the aspirational users who cant afford the higher priced handset while still delivering the forty percent margin to the books.
