One of the 2019 iPhone models could stick with the Liquid Retina LCD display, although in 2020 a rumor suggests Apple may drop the LCD model.
The plan to stick with LCD comes as Apple grapples with sluggish sales of the iPhone XR, which has cut into its most recent revenue projection. That is partly because the planned LCD handset has been in the product pipeline for months and the plan can’t be altered easily, they said.
Charlotte Henry also wrote that one or more of the new phones may come with three cameras.
Insider sources say the 2018 iPhone line could see shipments between 70 million and 75 million by year’s end, in line with the iPhone 6 record breaking launch.
Apple is reportedly transitioning away from LCD for all iPhone display panels in favor of OLED.
Flat panel display technology continues to evolve. A decade ago, we had Plasma and LCD TV sets. LCDs were adopted for use in iPhones and iPads, but they require backlighting. Then we had OLEDs (used in the Apple Watch). Now there’s Quantum Dots and microLEDs. John provides a primer.
