Apple iPhone X Plus, iPhone SE 2 With Better Display To Arrive In 2018: Analysts Claims
Apple is anticipated to launch two new smartphones this year, one is a premium handset, iPhone X Plus and the other one is budget-friendly iPhone SE 2. Latest technology news suggests that these devices will arrive flaunting huge screen as an analysts claim.
According to 9to5Mac, the TrendForce analysts anticipate that in 2018, the Cupertino-based company will launch the iPhone X Plus and iPhone SE 2. Moreover, the biggest enhancement which has been revealed in some latest technology news is the smartphones’ size.
For the iPhone X Plus, it has been speculated that Apple will go bigger as it may arm the handset with an enormous 6.2 or 6.3-inch display. On the other hand, iPhone SE successor may graduate from a 4-inch screen to a 6.1-inch screen size. Apart from the size, that it has been rumored that the iPhone X Plus and iPhone SE 2 will sport a bigger memory and AMOLED displays.
Moreover, Mac Rumors has learned that as per TrendForce, Apple’s iPhone lineup will continue to focus on Face ID. Meanwhile, other smartphone makers are predicted to stick with capacitive fingerprint sensors in the first half of this year. This is due to the incapability to compete against Apple’s technology. Moreover, in late 2018 the first phones that utilize under-display fingerprint technology will go into mass production.
TrendForce also has faith that Apple’s iPhone production will increase in 2018, which will lead to volume growth of 7.5 percent. Meanwhile, the South Korean tech giant Samsung won’t fare quite as well. This is due to “fierce competition” from competitors that include Apple and Chinese phone makers. Although Samsung will continue to be the top smartphone manufacturer internationally, TrendForce foresees a 3 percent drop in its production volume.
