iPhone X Plus with even larger OLED screen tipped for 2018

And so it begins… The iPhone X range will grow to feature a larger Plus edition in 2018, if an early prediction from a noted analyst is accurate.

Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities reckons Apple will look to top the 5.8-inch OLED screen featured on the newly-released tenth-anniversary handset.

The well-connected Kuo, who has a better track record than most in these cases, reckons the phone will have a gigantic 6.5-inch display with a pixel density of up to 500ppi (via TechCrunch).

However, according to Kuo, Apple is also planning to roll out edge-to-edge displays beyond the iPhone X next year.

Bye-bye bezels

The sequel to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will also be bezel-free, according to the analyst, but with LCD tech rather than the more expensive OLED tech powering the display.

The display size could be 6.1-inches, with a lower, max pixel density of 330ppi. It would also include Face ID, he says.

He says the iPhone 9 (or whatever it ends up being called) will also have a much more agreeable price tag than the iPhone X.

According to the note to investors, it’ll start at around $649, making it cheaper than the current iPhone 8.

The report ties in with what we’ve been hearing about the iPhone 8 sequel, as Apple looks to consign the Home button and Touch ID to the past.

However, it’s a little early in the cycle to make any concrete judgements on 2018 iPhone rumours, which went right up to September 2017 for the current editions.

Would it be wise for Apple to release a handset with 6.5-inch edge-to-edge display? Share your thoughts with us @TrustedReviews on Twitter.
