Apple using secret U.S. facility to develop MicroLED screens for Apple Watch

The iPhone 8 Plus offers split-screen feature and if the new phone is coming in the said size, Apple will surely give this ability to its new phone. The size also seems to be a little different from the iPhone X. But we can not trust these leaks until Apple release the iPhone SE 2 at WWDC. We are still away from E-SIM technology but if Apple manages to include this into its iPhone 2018 range, it will be a big change and likely the feature will be limited to a few countries depending on the support provided by telecom operators. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has already confirmed this rumor. It can happen because Apple has tried this with the iPhone 5c and the response was pretty good. Certainly, it can be said with some authority that Apple has never previously followed a policy of producing affordable kit; witness the price tag for its HomePod speaker, for example. The phone will be a cheaper version of iPhone X. Apple has preferred aluminium chassis for durability over glass back.

LG Display, together with Japan Display, will also reportedly be supplying the the LCD Displays for the upcoming new iPhone variant which they will be focusing on, rather than the OLED ones which will also be released at the same time.

This would enable Apple to deploy facial recognition technology across all three models of its two 2018 series, meaning that the days of the fingerprint sensor could be numbered. This smartphone appeared on the Chinese market in January, with its new Clear ID system. So there is a chance that Apple might outsource its new screen production.

While all reports call it iPhone SE 2, Forbes calls it iPhone X SE.

While OLED displays are more energy efficient and also helps make devices slimmer, it costs 2-3 times more than an LCD panel.

However, this is another rumor that can probably be considered unlikely. This suggests that Apple will freeze the screen resolution of its largest mobile this year, even if the iPhone 11 / iPhone X Plus does feature a 6.5-inch display.
