Which 2018 iPhone model are you most excited about?

Which 2018 iPhone model are you most excited about?
OK, OK, so it's not official and it's not set in stone... But a ton of leaks have us believing that there will be three new iPhones this year. All of them will have the cool new iPhone X shape, Face ID, and possibly Animoji, but they will be spread in different price brackets.

The $650-$700 spot will be taken by the "LCD iPhone" a.k.a. iPhone 9 or whatever Apple decides to call it. It'll have a 6.2-inch display with an LCD panel and a single camera on the back. Basically — your iPhone 8 upgraded with the thin bezels and notch design.

Then, there's the 2018 iPhone X, which will be a direct successor of last year's model and have a 5.8-inch, OLED display and a dual camera on the back. This time around, it'll be placed in the $800-$850 bracket.

The iPhone X Plus is, presumably, going to have a 6.5-inch OLED display and maybe, possibly, a triple lens camera on the back. This one will — you guessed it — hit that $1000 threshold.

Some people are genuinely excited about the LCD iPhone — finally, we will get a new Apple phone that is not shaped like an iPhone 6 and that does not cost an arm and a leg. Fair enough! Others are pumped about the iPhone X Plus. The 19:9 edge-to-edge screen stretched to 6.5 inches — that's going to be pretty, for sure! And there are those that will be happy to see the "regular" iPhone X reiterated and refined with a slightly lower price to boot.

Which camp do you fall in? Which of these presumed new iPhones are you most excited about!

Which of the expected new iPhones are you most excited about?

The LCD iPhone for sure!
The 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus sounds like the beast for me!
I'll just be happy to see the 5.8-inch iPhone X reiterated

I voted for the Note 9 just because it's funny and it'll rile up the faithful.

Kind of low ppi across range surprisingly but under 350 on the LCD at that size will make the Pixels visble I bet. That's just retina quality at 4inch isn't it wtf? My LCD screen is 504ppi and it's smaller but very sharp. This will be noticeably less, budget version I guess.

No, you can't tell the difference once you get to retina density, unless Apple goes above it, then it's noticeably sharper, but they don't lose that sharpness when they go back to retina, they only gain sharpness when they go denser.

Lcd all the way i hate burn in

I hate it, too. That's why I never leave my screen on for hours at a time on a single image. It's served me well. Not a hint of burn in on the Galaxy S3 (used heavily daily for 4 years), Note 4, Note 5, S7 Edge (which I hated for other reasons) or Note 8. Likewise, the wife never had any in her S7 or S8.

6.5 inch (PAUSE) iPhone X Plus for me. If the rumors turn out to be true, it’s gonna be THE iPhone to get.

I'm not convinced the 6.1" LCD iPhone will be $700. If so, then the 8+ will have to be $600 ($200 less) and the 7+ will have to be $500 ($169 less). Otherwise, who would buy the 7+ or 8+ if, for a little more, they can buy the 6.1" LCD? Because iPhones traditionally drop $100 every year, and if Apple is going to stick with this strategy, then the new 6.1" LCD iPhone will have to be priced at $800. So then the 8+ will be $700 ($100 less). And the 7+ will be $569 ($100 less). This is a more likely scenario. But then, $800 for an "affordable" iPhone is quite laughable.

I think the price of iPhone 6.1 going to be the same as iPhone 8 Plus or mayabe even cheaper due to the screen different 8 plus has better screen with higher pixels 401ppi vs 325-330ppi!

I’ve had a Samsung amoled and I was worried about burn in but never got any. I still get anxiety and don’t leave static content on the screen for extended periods like passive games and such.

As others, I think the 6.1" LCD will be the top seller - mainly due to price and that it will do almost all the iOS features well and quickly at a lower price than the OLED options. The Plus will probably sell similar to the previous generations, but it will pick up some marketshare from Samsung users because the S/Note lines have been lackluster in '18. The X Plus will due permanent damage to large Android-based phones though because OLED screen in this size on iOS is going to scratch some itches.

We've heard that every time Apple added a longstanding feature that Android had exclusively before, and every time Android share increased, and iPhone share dipped.

Don’t know I have feeling that the 6.1 LCD going to sell better than iPhone XS plus and iPhone X and note 9.

None. I'm just fine with my Note 8. Only way I'll have an iPhone is if someone buys it for me. Otherwise, until they allow the customization levels that Android offers, I'm sticking with Android.

If you’re into customization, Android is the only option.

iPhones are great device man, why not have both? I can’t see myself not having a Note and an iPhone.

No problem with that, but I have no use for two phones. I just go with the best single phone at the time I'm buying.

The one that doesn't come with a notch. But that dream has to wait... Oh well, G'Day!

Not a fan of lcd screens or massive phones. 5.8 OLED is the best of both worlds wish more under 6" phones would use OLED. Never had a burned screen on any OLED screen phones I have had over the last 5 years or so.

I'm upgrading to newer 5,8" I hardly have to pay anything for it when selling this X.

I was thinking the same thing actually. But if there’s no real upgrade to the camera and battery, I don’t think I will bother. I’m a bit worried that the new one will be switched over to the LG oled instead of Samsung.

Why would you be worried? Do you seriously think it would be worse? I bet you won't see any difference, it will be as good as Samsung one. You know it's designed by Apple, just like the current X screen it's just Samsung parts just like some units will have LG parts.

35. tedkord

Neither one is "designed" by Apple. Apple tells them the size and resolution, that's as far as their design goes. And if you think there won't be a difference, you haven't been comparing Samsung and LG OLED screens.
