"The 6.1-inch LCD model will likely sport a metal back [like older iPhone handsets] that will come in several colors", said the source, adding that the two OLED handsets will come in two sizes: one either 6.2 or 6.3 inches long, and the other 5.8 inches. This is in spite of Apple's decision to move forward with OLED screens for its flagship handsets.
Speaking to Nikkei, the source, who's apparently "privy to the company's product designs", said that Apple will launch a 6.1-inch LCD phone that will "probably" have a metal back available in several colors. What do you think of Apple returning to aluminum with the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone next year?
Australia edges closer to same-sex marriage vote
Dutton said none of his allies meant to delay gay marriage until those safeguards were decided. Nearly 80 percent of Australia's registered voters took part in the two-month survey.
The same source revealed that Pegatron subsidiary Casetek could become the supplier of the metal backs for the 6.1-inch iPhone units.
Apple is rumored to be planning to release three new iPhones next year, according to a report given to investors by analysts at Nomura, a Japanese financial firm.
The iPhone X, which was released last month, was the first iPhone to feature an OLED display. One model is believed to feature a 5.8-inch display, while the other model is expected to be a larger variant with a 6.2 or 6.3-inch screen. It's unclear how big it'll be, but the analysts say the phone will have the same TrueDepth camera that powers the 3D facial recognition system inside the iPhone X. The display will not have 3D Touch, and it'll feature a single-lens camera on the back. So it's best to take all these rumors with a grain of salt. We have earlier covered the issue and had reported that Apple was already working on two new OLED models for 2018.
