Apple is developing its own MicroLED screens for Apple Watch and iPhone

Ming-Chi Kuo, KGI Securities analyst said that the TrueDepth camera system was the main reason behind the problems because of its complicated facial recognition technologies. Many have suspected that the California-based company will release a iPhone X Plus, which would include an even bigger screen to captivate a consumer's sense of sight.

The format of Apple's 2018 lineup is the worst kept secret of the season, with a near-guarantee that we'll once again see three new iPhones released, including a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone that is meant to be a replacement for the 5.8-inch iPhone X, as well as a bigger version that is said to be named the iPhone X Plus with an OLED screen and a size of 6.5 inches.

Courtesy of the cost reduction, Line expects the 5.85-inch OLED version to be the most of affordable of the new iPhone Xs.

Apple will be looking to launch two OLED panel iPhones of screen sizes 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch along with a 6.1-inch LCD panel iPhone. The Apple Watch uses LG Display, while the new iPhone X uses Samsung's OLED screens.

While new iPhone announcements have always sent media into a frenzy, there will be more questions raised this year in the wake of the iPhone X. Overall figures for iPhone sales haven't been impressive and analysts point out the increasing prices to be a critical factor.

The comparative sizes of the three new Apple smartphones expected in 2018.

Apple has sent out invites to an event taking place on 27 March in Chicago and speculation is building that a cheaper MacBook Air, a new iPad, and an upgraded iPhone SE - the iPhone SE 2 - are going to be unveiled. However, the project was suspended in mid-February and seems to have been completely scrapped.

Phone manufacturers tweak screens to their specifications, and Apple has for years calibrated iPhone screens for color accuracy.

Apple now designs chips for its mobile devices and a move into displays could hurt screen makers like Samsung Electronics Co, Japan Display Inc, Sharp Corp and LG Display Co in the long term.

The large iPhone is said to have an iPhone X display in a body the size of an iPhone 8 Plus. Lin also suggested that the 5.85-inch OLED model might very well be the upgradation of the canceled LCD project, modified due to MBOM concerns. Then again, it won't be a true successor of the iPhone X. If Apple were to pass on that savings to customers, the next iPhone X could cost about $900 instead of $999.
