Apple’s 2018 iPhone line-up will feature handsets in the mould of the current iPhone X, one analytical firm believes.
According to the well-informed KGI securities, Apple is plotting a trio of full-screen devices, starting with a 5.8-inch (458ppi) OLED device, just like the current iPhone X.
Next, the analyst predicts, will be a 6.1-inch LCD model with a maximum pixel density of 330ppi, which will cost between $650-$750.
At the top of the range, KGI says, there’ll be a 6.5-inch OLED model, potentially an iPhone X Plus.
The analysts (via 9to5Mac) believe the 2018 iPhone will completely replace the 2017 iPhone X in the line up.
Previously, Apple has kept the previous years’ devices on sale, at reduced prices, when new iPhones come along to replace them.
Interestingly, KGI has lowered its forecast for iPhone X sales in the current quarter, suggesting 18m models will be sold. Other estimates say they expect up to 30 million.

The analyst says the phone will tally 62 million by the time the news models roll around, down from a previous forecast of 80m.
The analysts wrote: “We believe the addition of 6.5-inch OLED and 6.1-inch LCD iPhone models will boost Apple’s market share in China, and that the US$650-750 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will make it easier for users worldwide to own a 3D sensing and full-screen design iPhone which offers an innovative user experience.”
