KGI analyst expects three iPhones next year, two with OLED

14 November 2017

If you recall, the current iPhone X starts at $999. The new iPhone X has a 5.8-inch screen.

This prediction comes from analyst Min-Chi Kuo whose latest research for KGI Securities was obtained by MacRumors.

It joins a growing list of niggles for Apple's newest high-end handset.

Twitter has stopped verifying accounts - after it approved a white nationalist
Verification was meant to authenticate identity & voice but it is interpreted as an endorsement or an indicator of importance. Twitter announced Thursday that it will cease issuing the coveted blue check marks that indicate a user has been " verified ".

First, it's interesting Apple is once again planning to increase the iPhone screen size. "Last September we heard rumours of a 6.5" device due to come next year.

That would be the largest display Apple has ever included in an iPhone. "We are aware of instances where the iPhone X screen will become temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid change to a cold environment". Naturally, the 6.5-inch device is said to be called the iPhone X Plus. Leaving the 6.1 TFT-LCD as the "budget" version for the low/mid-range markets. We'll know more in the coming days as Apple tries to issue a fix for affected users. Do you purchase now?

So it's not exactly great news that a small (but growing) number are reporting that the screen develops a glowing green line (of death). Kuo's report detailed that the 6.1-inch LCD model may feature a lower pixel density, between 320 and 330 ppi.

Research suggests that sudden cardiac arrest after sex is rare but deadly
The vast majority were male and were more likely to be middle-aged, African-American and have a history of cardiovascular disease. Just 34 out of the 4,557 heart failures inspected happened amid or inside one hour of sex and 32 of those influenced were men.

Apple claims to have used the most durable glass cover on the iPhone X, but a drop test by CNET showed us how the iPhone X's back glass cover cracked from a drop from just the hip height (3 feet), the usual place where trousers pockets are. By this time next year, the supply chain should have plenty of experience in producing the iPhone X. Users also told that the green line wasn't present on the device right from the beginning but it had developed after using iPhone X for some days.

Demand for the iPhone X remains positive and Kuo estimates that production will rise somewhere around 35-45% in the next quarter compared to to the one previous.

The line appears from nowhere on devices that had previously been working normally.

S.Korea, US Kick off Joint Naval Exercise Involving 3 US Carriers
It's the first time since 2007 that three U.S. carrier strike groups are operating together in the Western Pacific. The last time such a convergence of military power occurred was in 2007 in waters off the USA territory of Guam.

The main thing to take away from this information is that the iPhone X design seems to be the future of iPhone, for now, and that Apple will be releasing a plus sized version, and a budget friendly version, alongside the 2nd Gen iPhone X next year.
