It is quite logical that Apple is simultaneously working on a large number of devices – and not all of them reach the announcement stage. So, it is reported that now the company has four prototypes iPhone of the 2018 line in development at once – but only three of them will see the light of day.
This was announced by senior analyst at Digitimes Luke Lin. The four iPhone in question include two OLED – models (6.1 “and 6.5”) and two LCD – models ( 5.8 “and 6.1”). In this case, it is most likely that a 6.1-inch iPhone with a OLED – display will be left behind.
The analyst believes that the company changed its original plans and instead of two OLED – models and a cheaper 5.8-inch LCD – version will release just two iPhone with LCD – screens and one OLED with 6.5 ″ screen.
It's worth noting that all four models support wireless charging and Face ID. Apple has not yet decided which models will go into mass production, so this may change.
But these three devices won't be all iPhone coming this year. The second generation iPhone SE is also expected to be released in May or June. iPhone SE 2 will support wireless charging, but the TrueDepth camera will remain a flagship feature.
