"Apple may position the new 5.85-inch device as the cheapest model of all three next-generation iPhone models", said Luke Lin in the report. The analyst claims that the manufacturing bill of materials will be more than ten percent lower this time. Naturally, the 5.85-inch model, containing adopted components with lower-level specifications or lower capacities than those of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone with LPDDR memory, is expected to be the cheapest one among these three next-generation Apple OLED iPhone models.

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 report is based on supply chain sources and states that Apple is speeding up the trial production to continue with the delivery schedules of the upcoming iPhone models so that there would be available supply for pre-orders. This will include a successor to iPhone X, the iPhone X Plus, which is said to feature a massive 6.5-inch display and a more affordable 6.1-inch model that will be touting an LCD display. Now a new report has surfaced online suggesting price of the 5.8-inch variant. This could be an indication for Apple fans to expect a price drop from the massive $999 price point of the iPhone X that was launched previous year. This also means that the price of the iPhone can drop down from the hefty $999. We could see Apple displays used in the Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and maybe even MacBooks in the future, but there's one big problem: MicroLED is extremely hard to manufacture.




The large iPhone is said to have an iPhone X display in a body the size of an iPhone 8 Plus. It is unlikely that the technology will reach an iPhone for at least three to five years as MicroLED screens are more hard to produce than the current displays, Bloomberg said.

One of the issues with the current iPhone X display - a flaw that's inherent to the iPhone X's display type - is that when the screen is viewed off-axis, there is a dramatic color shift. If Apple were to pass on that savings to customers, the next iPhone X could cost about $900 instead of $999.

Some details of iPhone SE 2 have been leaked, which seem to be at variance with the earlier rumors about this budget handset from the Apple.
