Apple's new iPhone will also revert to aluminium chassis that means that no wireless charging will be offered. Apple last used metal casing on the iPhone 7 series in 2016. Analysts suggest this device could cost between $650 and $900, with Apple achieving the price cut by dropping the expensive OLED display and Force Touch tech.
Apple's sticking to LCD panels is expected to be welcome news for Asian LCD panel suppliers such as Sharp and Japan Display.
OLED screens are brighter, feature better contrast, and are flexible enough to sport a curved shape.
The 6.1-inch iPhone will feature an LCD display, while the other two will spot OLED screen.More news: United, Juve into Last 16; as Bayern Beat PSG — Champions League
If you're skipping an iPhone upgrade this year for a much-advanced iPhone next year, will you go with the LCD or OLED variant?
Nomura's analysts have gathered this information through supply chain surveys filled in by firms which supply parts to Apple for the iPhone. It's the reason we're only seeing Space Gray, Silver, and Gold this year with the iPhone 8.

Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities is out with his latest investor note this evening covering more changes we can expect with next year's iPhone refresh. Reports about the upcoming iPhones have already started surfacing the web suggesting that Apple may - yet again- enveil three iPhones next year - one of which will reportedly be the successor of the iPhone X - and may be called iPhone X Plus.
