In so doing, Apple is hoping to deliver all 2018 iPhone models on time. Also, Samsung's OLED display deals with Apple were inked long before the iPhone X rolled out, which means Samsung had knowledge of Apple's iPhone display plans well in advance.
The report further claimed Apple purchased fewer OLED panels from Samsung Display than it had earlier committed due to the weak demand for the iPhone X. This resulted in Apple's South Korean panel supplier to "bargain more chips" in its negotiation for manufacturing OLED panels for the upcoming iPhones.
To support its affordable price tag, the new 5.85-inch iPhone X successor will incorporate low-level specification components than its 6.1-inch LCD counterpart - e.g. As per previous reports, the Cupertino giant is expected to launch three iPhone variants this year - a 6.5-inch OLED model, a 6.1-inch LCD model, and a 5.8-inch OLED model. Of course, iPhone X was launched in Silver and Space Gray, with no mention of Blush Gold whatsoever.
Apple will be looking to launch two OLED panel iPhones of screen sizes 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch along with a 6.1-inch LCD panel iPhone.More news: Player's apparent arrogance could be a barrier to Liverpool transfer this summer

An Apple sales associate speaks with a customer waiting to purchase a new iPhone X in NY, U.S., November 3, 2017. In particular, the low yield of infrared 3D sensors for the iPhone X's FaceID functionality is cited as the main reason why that one hit the shelves at a later date and was initially always out of stock.
According to the information that is available right now, there are going to be three new smartphone models that Apple will be announced during the month of September. With Apple expected to switch to Face ID on other models as well this year, the company is said to begin trial production of the new models soon.
However, Apple is said to have reached an agreement with Samsung Display and secured satisfactory terms that will prevent the panel costs from increasing. 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. Considering that the iPhone X costs around $400 to make, that equates to about $40 in savings.
The large iPhone is said to have an iPhone X display in a body the size of an iPhone 8 Plus.
