The phone will come alongside another OLED phone which will be the "Plus" model of the 5.8-inch iPhone.

If you are one of those who would rather have a metal back instead of glass, the objective of which is to allow wireless charging, there's some good news for you.

First spotted by GizmoChina, Nomura claims that LCD display iPhone which is expected to launch in 2018 will feature an edge-to-edge design similar to the iPhone X. There will be a single camera setup on the rear and is also expected to come with FaceID feature. Sources privy to Apple's product designs told the Nikkei Asian Review that the tech giant is planning to return to a metal chassis for the 2018 LCD iPhone. Rumours are rife that Apple will be launching three iPhones next year, out of which one is going to be a low-priced model with LCD display measuring 6.1 inches.

In the meantime, Apple refused to accept the result of the experiment, claiming that the iPhone X is the most durable glass-based smartphone, although it commented that Consumer Reports tested the durability of the iPhone X with strict criteria. The more affordable price may mean the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be discontinued.

With the coming holidays, consumers are most probably looking into spending their bonuses on something nice, like the highly coveted iPhone 8 and iPhone X. Find out which of Apple's newest gadgets are the best fit in the comparison below. The Cupertino company is said to be working with LG Display on OLED screens for 2018 iPhones.

It was only last week that we posted a follow-up report titled "China's Largest OLED Supplier Shared Business Plan with Apple for Dedicated Production Lines Exclusively for future iPhones".

According to KGI Securities, the 2018 LCD iPhone would "differ significantly" from the OLED models. When anything is confirmed in detail, we will announce it, or (otherwise an announcement will be made) in a month.

Out of the two models following suit, one will have the same screen of the iPhone X, i.e. a 5.8 inch, whereas the other model will come with a 6.5 inch display.
