As Apple is done with its iPhone launches for the year, the company is said to have started working on 2018 iPhones, and according to a new report from Nikkei, the Cupertino-based iPhone maker is said to launch a low-cost 6.1-inch iPhone with LCD display and metal back case. 

It is known that Apple is working on three iPhone models for 2018  one of which being a low-cost model with an LCD display with an estimated pixel density of 330 PPI. On the other hand, the high-end iPhone models will sport 5.8-inches and 6.5-inches respectively. The LCD model will have a metal back cover instead of a glass back as seen on this year’s iPhones.

The body of the LCD display model could be manufactured by Casetek, a Pegatron subsidiary. This new piece of information falls in line with the earlier report shared by KGI Securities Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, whose estimates more often not turn out to be true. While the pricing of the model might vary, all the three models are said to feature a full-screen edge-to-edge design and a TrueDepth camera system like the current iPhone X.

According to KGI’s earlier reports, the 6.1-inches model with LCD display will likely target low-end and mid-range markets, and the pricing is said to be $649 to $749 in the United States. Not much is know at the moment, but we should be knowing more details as we move forward.
