Apple to add a new 5.42-inch iPhone to its current OLED iPhones line-up in 2020
Its three month past this year, and four more months to go for the new iPhones launch and reports are circulating already about the next year iPhone line-up as well – thanks to the internet. A new report has emerged online suggesting an entirely new trio of OLED iPhones to be launched in 2020. Yes, 2020, and 2019 iPhones are likely to follow their previous iterations that are launched in 2018.
According to a new report by DigiTimes, Apple is working on launching three new OLED-based iPhones in 2020. It is said that these iPhones are likely to be available in a new 5.42-inch, 6.06-inch and 6.67-inch screen sizes with respective OLED panels, suggests the report, based on sources from Taiwan’s handset component supply chain.
What this means is that the current line-up of Xs devices – the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max would have successors with 6.06-inch and 6.67-inch OLED screens in 2020 respectively. In addition, we get to see a new 5.42-inch model with an OLED display that is expected to come with either one of the displays, I.e., Samsung’s Display’s Y-Octa or LG Display’s TOE touch technology. These new display technologies are expected to be trimming down the display costs as well.
The report further indicates the Y-Octa technology from Samsung is an advanced flexible AMOLED display that excludes film substrate, and also allows the touch circuit to be directly patterned in the film’s encapsulated layer, this eventually is said to be making the display thinner, as stated in the report.
Earlier reports and the new report from DigiTimes indicates that 2019 iPhones will be featuring the same OLED screen technologies as we have seen in the predecessors and will also feature the same display sizes, which means we will still have a 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones alongside the 6.1-inch LCD model as well.
That said, recent reports are suggesting 2019 iPhones would be coming with a new reverse wireless charging feature and with bigger batteries, as we have seen on the last year released Huawei Mate 20 and the recently released trio of Galaxy S10 devices. This will allow the iPhones to wirelessly charge their recently released AirPods 2nd gen or Airpods 1st gen with wireless charging case and also the new Apple Watch as well.
