Apple is expected to unveil three new iPhones next month, and the 6.1-inch LCD model will reportedly get the most attention from Apple when it comes to production.

Courtesy of a steady stream of leaks and rumors in the past few months, we already know that Apple will be launching as many as three new iPhone this year.

Sales of the iPhone 8/X series were affected by the delayed launch. Now, the price of the iPhone will be available from $ 700. And the demand for this model was not very high.

According to a new press release from Trendforce, Apple intends to both increase the appeal and the price of the next iPhone by adding new features and support.

Seeing the devices in the video (embedded above), the first thing that stands out is that all three of them have the infamous notch, which debuted with last year's iPhone X. This essentially means that the entire 2018 line-up of iPhones will forgo Touch ID in favor of Face ID. Apple Pencil was once the highlights of the iPad Pro lineup.

Market analysis company TrendForce has dropped some interesting information about the upcoming iPhones.

Samsung has announced that its next major smartphone will come out August 24. "It's debatable how usable it would be on the 5.8" model, but it could be nice to have on the 6.5" version. All three models are expected to be shipped in September and October as previously scheduled.

Apple will need to improve its cost structure to cope with the threats brought by Android brands.

Apple is also rumored to have been trying to reduce the cost of components by bargaining with its supply chain partners and Samsung as well, in an attempt to reduce the price of the OLED display panels.

Then we come to the second AMOLED iPhone, which is predicted to have a 6.46-inch display and dual-SIM capabilities like its LCD counterpart. The specs upgrades would make new iPhones more favorable in the competition with Android phones.

Screens would cover 5.8-inch, 6.1-, and 6.5-inch models. Apple is bound to adjust the prices of this model to meet the market expectation and to further expand its market share. The OLED models, on the other hand, are expected to start from the $899-949 range. The OLED iPhones, meanwhile, will have 4GB of memory.
