Top Apple analyst sees 100 million 6.1-inch LCD equipped iPhone units shipped this year
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is considered to be the best Apple analyst in the world. Kuo is plugged into Apple in such a way, that no other analyst comes close when it comes to making predictions about future products or estimating how many units of a model will be sold. Kuo says that Apple will be selling three new models in 2018. All three will be equipped with the TrueDepth Camera, and offer Face ID. Two will feature OLED panels of 5.8-inches and 6.5-inches. Those are believed to be the Apple iPhone Xs and Apple iPhone Xs Plus, respectively.

According to Kuo, the third model will carry a 6.1-inch LCD screen and have only one camera on back. This could be the Apple iPhone 9. Expected to be the lowest priced phone among the trio, Kuo told KGI clients that he expects Apple to sell 100 million units of this model in 2018 alone. With a price in the range of $700 to $800, this device could generate up to $80 billion in revenue alone over the last 6 months of this year.

Kuo is calling for the iPhone 9 to outsell the new iPhone units carrying an OLED display. The analyst says that he expects the 6.1-inch iPhone to account for 50% of new handsets that Apple will deliver during the second half of this year.

The record for most iPhone sales made in one quarter was set in Apple's fiscal first quarter of 2017. During that three month period, Apple sold 78.29 million units of its iconic smartphone.
