In late August Patently Apple posted a report titled "Apple Rumored to be introducing 5.85" and 6.46" OLED iPhone 9 Models next year with a possible new Third Model." The report hinted that the third iPhone model could support OLED. Today another strange supply chain rumor confirms the two larger OLED models are on tap for 2018 but saying that the third iPhone model would actually offer a 6" LCD display.
While the rumor seems a little off-beat, the Korea Herald's report states that Apple has decided to ditch the smallest 5.28-inch OLED iPhone next year, while adding a larger -- possibly more than 6 inches -- LCD model into the full lineup."
Our August report noted that Apple had ditched a 5.28" OLED based iPhone. The rumor now states that the smaller unit will be replaced with a six inch LCD model. Specifically the report noted that "While ditching the 5.28-inch OLED model, Apple has reportedly made new panel orders to LCD producer Japan Display for a 6 plus-inch model."
