Apple Will Continue Producing LCD iPhones In 2019, According To This Report

With the launch of iPhone X in 2017, Apple has taken a big leap, although the Cupertino-based company initially faced trouble in production. But later, it managed to get things up and sorted within a few months. However, the demand for the iPhone X didn’t take off. Reason? It could be due to the presence of the cheaper iPhone 8 or could be lack of supply. But numbers tell us that the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus did well than iPhone X sales in the U.S.

According to a new report out of South Korea claims that Apple is taking this quite seriously, and it also cutting down its ambitions of an all OLED iPhone lineup in 2019. Another report says that Apple will have LG Display as the main supplier for the 2019 LCD iPhone(s), indicating that the disparity between the OLED and LCD variants will continue until 2020 at least.

When compared LCD panels are cheaper to make, resulting in a lower selling cost for the iPhones, also make them available at a cheaper iPhone in all sorts. However, the price difference between the two iPhone X vs iPhone 8 isn’t too significant, although people still preferred the iPhone 8 models over the iPhone X. Customers are not entirely convinced about the benefits of an OLED display over a conventional LCD panel.

Finally, these only report that didn’t come from an official Apple employee, so it’s recommended you take it with a pinch of salt. It is clear, though, Apple will have at least one LCD iPhone this year, expected to be packing a 6.1-inch display. The company is also heading over to launch a “Plus” model of iPhone X, which is spotted in a leak over the weekend, said to be priced at $1,200.
