KGI analyst says Apple will offer two iPhone models with an OLED screen in 2018
Next year, Kuo sees Apple making the stainless steel band on its premium phone out of more than the four parts it used for the iPhone X. This could improve data transmission on the device as well as enhance its design. While he sees upgrades to the specs of the 2018 premium model(s), he does not see Apple using a rear-facing version of the TrueDepth Camera in 2018. The analyst does expect a front-facing TrueDepth Camera on each iPhone manufactured next year. That means that they will each be equipped with Face ID and the Animoji animation. Face ID should also show up on 2018 Apple iPad Pro tablets.
Betting against Ming-Chi Kuo is usually not smart. The analyst is so plugged into Apple that by last February, he had the size of the screen on the iPhone X, knew about the TrueDepth Camera (which he called revolutionary) and had told his clients that a facial recognition system would replace Touch ID on the tenth anniversary model.
