Apple might move back to metal for one iPhone 9 model”

The phone will come alongside another OLED phone which will be the "Plus" model of the 5.8-inch iPhone. While the new handset will likely be more durable, with less glass to shatter accidentally, it may drop the ability to wirelessly charge.

Alongside this metal-backed iPhone, the source claims Apple is tentatively planning two new OLED handsets, one of which would be around 5.8 inches (like the iPhone X, which is now Apple's only OLED phone) and one of roughly 6.3 inches. The device is expected to cost less than the iPhone X successor, for it is sporting a liquid crystal display.

Apple's $999 iPhone X switched from a traditional LCD panel to a more premium OLED screen, which is more colorful, brighter and energy efficient.

The iPhone X performed about the same as two other flagship phones, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, Consumer Reports said.

Apple launched the Apple iPhone X and the world went insane about it. The more affordable price may mean the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be discontinued. Now with the all glass iPhone 8, Apple can only offer Space Grey, Silver and Gold, meanwhile the iPhone X is limited to Space Grey and Silver. The Cupertino company is said to be working with LG Display on OLED screens for 2018 iPhones.

The same source revealed that Pegatron subsidiary Casetek could become the supplier of the metal backs for the 6.1-inch iPhone units. The information was shared by KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kou.

Citing a source "privy to the company's product designs", Nikkei's report today claims Apple will unveil three new iPhones in 2018.

It was only last week that we posted a follow-up report titled "China's Largest OLED Supplier Shared Business Plan with Apple for Dedicated Production Lines Exclusively for future iPhones".

Kuo has also claimed that the 6.1-inch iPhone would come with a lower-resolution display. Casetek has made iPads in the past, but the 6.1-inch LCD device would be its first iPhone.

According to Nomura, the LCD iPhone arriving in 2018 will sport the same edge-to-edge design like the iPhone X. It will be featuring only a single camera on its rear panel.
