Apple pinned to release new cheaper iPhone in June

According to the analyst, the new iPhone uses the cover glass sensor process, where the touch module is attached to the glass instead of being processed.

However, the mystery behind the thin-film sensor is not revealed in Kuo's note, but it might be some kind of an alternative to the 3D Touch feature.

The update predicts that Apple will utilize that new CGS display on all new iPhone models in 2019, and that 3D Touch might be rejected from iPhones through and through later on.


But for now, if the newest report is to be believed, the company may be ditching 3D Touch feature in one of its upcoming iPhone handsets.

So far we've heard rumors of three devices from Apple including 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch phones, but the smallest and largest of those are rumored to feature OLED display tech while the one in the middle will be LCD.

Along with the touch film sensor, Apple will allegedly add a thin film sensor as well. As per Kuo, the phone will sport a stronger display glass which will not only be lighter but also more robust. Approximately, it will range in the $23-$26 price range, so as a result, this model could be sold for a higher price when it is getting announced during the month of September.


The rumored 6.1-inch iPhone for 2018 won't have 3D Touch functionality.

For the uninitiated, 3D Touch is a feature that was introduced by Apple back in 2016 with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

The expulsion of 3D Touch doesn't appear to be excessively fantastical given it's very polarizing - a few clients think that its valuable, while others think that its pointless. The future of 3D Touch is quite uncertain amid leaked reports of Apple's upcoming phones.
