Apple reportedly working on mid-range 6.1-inch iPhone with no 3D Touch

An analyst at KGI Securities has predicted that Apple will kill off the original iPhone X once the second-generation model hits the Apple stores.

Well, who saw this coming?

The now available iPhone X is the first generation model and available at United States dollars 999 in the USA market (Rs 89,000 in India). The depth-sensing camera will enable buyers of the $699 model to use features such as Face ID, Animoji, and Portrait Selfies, which are now exclusive to the $999 iPhone X, while reducing the need for bezels and Touch ID authentication.

The LCD iPhone is rumored to sport a rather unusual feature-set for a mid-range smartphone - and especially for an Apple iPhone. Best understood as the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Plus, the new iPhones are expected to use 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED screens with Super Retina resolutions of over 450 PPI. Recall that usually cupertinos the company offers one model of smartphone for several years, reducing its price after the release of a new device. In light of this, Apple is reportedly planning to discontinue the device later this year. Apple usually keeps the current iPhone as an option, but reduces the price by around £100, but that's not expected to be the case this year, according to usually-reliable analyst Ming-Chi kuo.

According to data reported Monday by CIRP, the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X accounted for about 61% of all USA sales during the fourth quarter. Thus, the future 6.1-inch iPhone with LCD display will be at risk. It also introduces an OLED display design and a suite of new features for augmented reality applications. On that date, we should know how many iPhone units the company sold during the fourth calendar quarter.

According to Japan Display, its Full Active LCDs are 6-inch displays and comes with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels and have an 18:9 aspect ratio. Indeed, Kuo believes around half of all 2018 iPhone model sales could be of this cheapest 6.1-inch iPhone version. The larger portfolio of iPhone models allows Apple to cater to multiple smartphone segments, and compete with the leaders of every segment. However, this shouldn't have any effect on key user experience.
