The next iPhone to be better and Cheaper than the iPhone X

iOS 11.3 Beta brings back 'iBooks' App Apple's March 27 event: What to expect and how to watch

Nothing has been officially confirmed by Apple, but the launch of one or more of these three new products would make sense.

But Apple appears to be very aggressive about defending its innovations in a field that's dominated by its rivals. But there's still no confirmation on when Apple will employ its own displays on its iPhones.

We're used to seeing Apple file a ton of patents in the USA, as the company, but The Korea Herald draws our attention to an increased patent activity in Korea. Late past year, Apple invested nearly $400 million into a company that produces these components.

The tech company's engineers have already manufactured "fully functional" MicroLED screens for Apple Watches.

Samsung and LG have filed plenty of patents during the same period. Its reported cut in OLED display orders from Samsung may point to the latter.

iPhone sales did miss expectations during Apple's most recent quarter, but CEO Tim Cook said that the "iPhone X surpassed our expectations and has been our top-selling iPhone every week since it shipped in November". If this report by DigiTimes is indeed true, it will be much easier to get your favorite iPhone model this year.

To be clear, these suppliers are in talks with Android original equipment manufacturers and will absolutely want that business when the time is right, but the execs implicitly acknowledge that their hands are tied, as near-term production is being allocated to Apple.

Ray Soneira, who founded screen tester DisplayMate Technologies, said bringing the design inhouse is a "golden opportunity" for Apple. 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. That's not all of Samsung's doing.

Apple has recently determined the direction for its next-generation iPhone lineup - which will consist of two OLED-based iPhones (5.85-inch and 6.45-inch) and a 6.1-inch LCD model. One of them will be the iPhone X Plus, the second one will be the successor to the iPhone X, while the third model is going to be the iPhone model that will feature a bezel-less display, but come with an LCD screen panel rather than an OLED one.
