Apple could launch a larger iPhone X Plus next year, according to the report

The KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, wrote a new report on Apple's plans for next year. According to him, the company will release three new iPhone devices next year. They will all have side-by-side displays with a notch.

The successor of the iPhone X could be about the same size and shape. According to Kuo, this new iPhone would feature a 5.8-inch display with a density of 458 pixels per inch. It's exactly the same specifications as the current display in the iPhone X.

But if a 5.8-inch screen is not enough, KGI Securities thinks there will be a bigger phone with a 6.5-inch screen. It will also be an OLED display with a pixel density of 480-500 pixels per inch. In other words, there could be a second generation iPhone X Plus.

That's not all. Apple does not plan to focus on high-end phones that cost $ 1,000 or more. The company will also release a successor to the iPhone 8. But Apple plans to bring some of the innovations of the iPhone X to this new device.

This low-end (but still very expensive) iPhone can cost between $ 649 and $ 749 and features an edge-to-edge display with a notch. But there will be compromises. For example, you can expect a traditional LCD with a lower resolution (about 320 to 330 pixels per inch).

It could have a 6.1-inch screen, which would make it slightly larger than the iPhone X. And it could have all the sensors for face recognition and face tracking.

Apple is working on new phones for years before unveiling them. But, as always, this report might not be perfectly accurate. We will learn more about Apple's 2018 range of iPhones in the coming months.
