Due to this cost reduction, the report says, "Apple may position the new 5.85-inch device as the cheapest model of all three next-generation iPhone models". When it launched back in 2017, the iPhone X bill of materials cost was more than $400, but the bill of the iPhone 5.85-inch model will be even lesser. A few months ago, a report said that Apple is working on a secret iPhone project with LG so that Samsung can't have access to it.

Apple is expected to launch three models this year.

MicroLED screens would help Apple reduce the thickness of the iPhone's display while increasing power efficiency and screen performance. Ming-Chi Kuo, KGI Securities analyst said that the TrueDepth camera system was the main reason behind the problems because of its complicated facial recognition technologies.

Apple is rumored to be kicking off trial production of its three anticipated 2018 iPhone models in late Q2 2018, a bit earlier than past year. According to a report by Bloomberg, the company is using MicroLED technology in an effort to replace Samsung's OLED displays in future Apple devices.

Six Nations: Ireland's Grand Slam homecoming cancelled
RORY BEST COULDN'T hide his pride and raw emotion out on the pitch and in the press conference room at Twickenham after joining Brian O'Driscoll and Karl Mullen in the elite club of captaining Ireland to Grand Slam glory.

An Apple sales associate speaks with a customer waiting to purchase a new iPhone X in NY, U.S., November 3, 2017. However, the project was suspended in mid-February and must have been eventually terminated later on.

Its move into displays has the long-term potential to hurt a range of suppliers, from screenmakers like Samsung Electronics Co, Japan Display Inc, Sharp Corp and LG Display Co, to companies like Synaptics Inc that produce chip-screen interfaces. But there's still no confirmation as to when will Apple employ its own displays on its iPhones. How, then, might Apple price the larger iPhone X Plus? We could see Apple displays used in the Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and maybe even MacBooks in the future, but there's one big problem: MicroLED is extremely hard to manufacture.

Lin said the next 5.85-inch OLED iPhone could be the cheapest of the three upcoming iPhones also because some of the phone's recent engineering samples have adopted components with low-level specifications and lower capacities than those on the bigger 6.5-inch and 6.1-inch models. We could very well see a new Apple Pencil with expanded compatibility for lower-end iPads.

DigiTimes learned from Taiwanese sources Thursday that Apple is looking to start trial production of its new iOS-running phones in the second quarter of 2018. While the display on the iPhone X is extremely color accurate, it's still not quite ideal.
