The OLED iPhones may be released before the 'cost-effective' LCD model

The 80 million number is interesting since it is 20% less than the 100 million total units of iPhone 8, Plus and X that Apple reportedly ordered last year, but this might just be an overabundance of caution at Cupertino, given the rumored cut in the iPhone X orders for the last two quarters. The more intriguing part of the report, however, lies in the following insider statement:
That's not the first time we are hearing that the LCD iPhone 9 will be launched after the iPhone Xs and Xs Plus, or whatever these get called. The culprit was pegged as light bleeding from the LCD display around the notch, yet the supply chain sources in this latest report say there is another bottleneck - the faux 3D Touch layer that the LCD display will reportedly have to mimic the real thing that will only be incorporated on the more expensive OLED iPhones.
The iOS 12 beta includes an intriguing new way to use Apple's keyboard area as a trackpad by long-pressing the spacebar on iPhones without 3D Touch, so there might be some merits to the rumor that Apple will approach the 3D Touch paradigm from another angle with the final release, which might not actually require the respective hardware implementation.
"The production yield for the LCD model's 'touch' function is not satisfactory at the moment, but it is improving," tipped one of the sources, though, so the delay between the two releases may not be a whole month, after all, and we should hear more on the matter as the time nears.

Of course Apple would drop the higher priced iPhones first, especially when Apple only drops very few iPhones in a year. So people have to wait another year for the next drop. The obsessed users will always buy the most expensive iPhones no matter what, but for people waiting in general, then Apple hopes to grab as many users as they can to purchase the higher end models. Besides let's see if Apple can really make a lower priced device, but the real question is how much lower in price. If Apple drops the price too much, then people will stop buying the higher priced models, especially when the lower priced ones will most likey run everything including all the same apps. So then you have to ask yourself why buy the higher priced iPhones.

What does your comment has to do with the OP you replied to? Anyways, didn't Apple release their most expensive iPhone nearly 2 months after they released the iPhone 8? And seriously dude, go get a life, this obsession with Apple is really pathetic.
