The 6" iPhone 9 may sport tougher LCD display with mysterious extra layer

the mass 2018 iPhone, instead of utilizing the current in-cell one that integrates the touch layer in the display. The advantages of CGS, apart from lowered production costs, are that the panel reportedly becomes lighter and more durable, albeit slightly thicker.What is Apple planning to do with this layer, and will it mean some sort of mock 3D Touch will stay in the LCD iPhone model, remains to be seen. The analyst says that Apple is moving to cover glass sensor (CGS) technology for
Adding another thin film layer to the mix has reportedly raised the panel pricing 15% to $23-$26, but Apple apparently deemed this worth it for the added functionality. Now, what would that extra feature that requires a second sensing layer bring, is anyone's guess, yet the option is apparently going to be present on all 2019 iPhones, too. Thus, the LCD iPhone is shaping up to be a pioneer for Apple in some way, we'll just have to wait and see which one.

The cover glass sensor and extra thin film layer is JDi Pixel touch sensor on cover display within Increen screens fingerprint scanner to replicate force touch as 3D touch and Fingerprint unlock on lcd screen rather on sensor behind oled screen that why they are ditching the 3D touch layer on LcD panels and making it exclusive for expensive oled models like iphone xs,xs+.So buy the iphone 6s,7,8 series models as it last for u if u do not like haptic feedback engine on 7,8 and no headphone jack then go for 6s,6s+.

It could be an extra layer also used for a stylus. Especially when a 6.1" or 6.5" display is most definitely phablet size. The problem with Apple is they are only phablet in name. So none of the tablet like features are supported on any iPhone. Apple purposely and artificially makes their iPhones only support single tasks, with split screen multitasking left to Apples aidiPads. This is where Android gives full multitasking and split screen multitasking to all its devices, from any sized smartphones/phablets to its tablets. Does anyone here remember the first Galaxy Note (2011) with its massive 5.3" display, and where Steve Jobs was quoted saying no one will buy that really large phone? Then in 2014 Apple came out with the 6 plus with its 5.5" display. For years Apple has been using features and options that have been on Android smartphones/phablets for years.

Boring company. Originally all the hardware pieces in iphone are the cheapest in the market. I remember what Apple used to make fun of the big screen of Samsung, after it followed, and now it is increasing size more and more the second stage of copiying is S-pen and attempts to create a market similar to Samsung Galaxy Note. I think this is the point that Note surpasses the competitors

Might be the case for the most expensive one. If you read the actual leak, it's not as glorified as phonearena said. The cheaper one where they see this new film actually has its glass and touchsensor seperated. This should make repairs easier and make the glass much tougher. So no. There is no mysterical new sensor layer like phonearena likes to hype up. The more expensive model might have it tho.

To all the folks who were expecting Apple to miraculously get the starting price down to $550. This article should be a wake up call. - Apple will make the display slightly better and charge a premium for it. - A brand new form factor will always command a premium. (Apple is using the same design since 4 years) - When most people will be willing to pay $650 for a 6.1 inch phone. Apple will not be stupid to charge less such as $550. - Many articles state that LG is not ready to supply OLED. This means that Apple needs to make profits else where. The most obvious place is by squeezing as much money from lower tier of phones like the 6.1. Having said all this. I am super excited to see what the second generation iPhone x has to offer. The second gens are always awesome. If it fails to impress. I am sticking with my 7 or maybe look out for the SE 2. Cheers!
