iPhone XL display size in 2018 roadmap preview

By Alan Ng - Nov 14, 2017

We are continuing to hear more whispers on Apple’s rumored 2018 iPhone XL phone now, with some more information as to what Apple plans to do with regards to their iPhone X follow up since we know that new devices will still release 12 months later.

The iPhone X is in huge demand right now with the 5.8-inch OLED edge-to-edge display being the main highlight which has contributed to a steep $999 retail price.

Now, following on from the initial rumors of the 6.5-inch ‘iPhone XL’ which we told you about here, KGI Securities are back with more insight courtesy of 9to5Mac on how Apple could be set to offer as many as three new devices for 2018.

If their predictions are correct, Apple will now switch to bezel-free smartphones on all future iPhones and offer an entry-level 6.1-inch iPhone ‘9’ which features a TFT-LCD display.

On top of this there will be an upgraded 5.8-inch OLED iPhone followed by next year’s premium option with the whopping 6.5-inch iPhone XL – you can see all three devices in the mock up image above.

Obviously these are only predictions at this point but it would be great for consumers to have a third option thrown into the mix so you can pick on personal taste as well as budget obviously.

Will Apple eventually lower their asking price too for the OLED versions of the iPhone in 2018? Many consumers will hope so, but as we wait for the next set of rumors let us know which of the three devices from the image above you would choose.
