Apple planning LCD iPhone with metal case for 2018

It promised to be a futuristic solution to securing your phone but Apple's Face ID is causing problems for some of its users. Affected handsets display the message'Unable to activate Face ID on this phone, but a simple trick could help to correct the

"We tumbled three samples of the iPhone X. The first was fine after 50 drops, but the glass on the back was significantly cracked after 100". This is in spite of Apple's decision to move forward with OLED screens for its flagship handsets. A new report fresh from Japan is claiming that the Cupertino giant is in the process of developing a 6.1-inch handset with LCD screen. Consumer Reports said the iPhone X screens broke more often than those of the iPhone 8 during its drop tests.

The OLED phone will reportedly come with a 5.8-inch display and will come as a sequel to the iPhone X.

Nikkei added that the LCD model will have a metal back, which suggests it might not pack newer technologies such as wireless charging.

Trailer for Lynne Ramsay's YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE Starring Joaquin Phoenix
The film also stars Judith Roberts , John Doman , Alex Manette , Dante Pereira-Olsen, and Alessandro Nivola . Here's what we had to say about the film when we caught it at the BFI London Film Festival back in October.

Looking ahead to 2018, Apple's iPhone lineup stands to become more varied than ever. In October Patently Apple posted a report titled "Apple may Gain BOE as a new Supply Chain Participant for future Flexible OLED Displays". Casetek, a subsidiary of iPhone 8 manufacturer Pegatron Corp., could be selected to make the LCD iPhone. A different source told Nikkei that Casetek was already experimenting with metal casings for the LCD iPhone. The 5.8-inch OLED iPhone would offer a pixel density of 458ppi, same as the current iPhone X. The 6.5-inch OLED iPhone would have a pixel density of 480-500ppi.

LG Display has been a solid partner of Apple over the last 10 years, providing liquid crystal displays until the USA smartphone maker turned to Samsung Electronics for OLED screens for the iPhone X for the first time. The LCD iPhone, in contrast, will sell at a lower price point ($650-$750) and have a lower pixel density (320-330ppi). Kuo, however, stated that all three 2018 models would debut with full-screen, edge-to-edge displays and the TrueDepth camera system that's now featured on the 10th anniversary iPhone. It also means that the LCD iPhone would feature incredibly slim bezels with a notch. When anything is confirmed in detail, we will announce it, or (otherwise an announcement will be made) in a month.

Will the next-gen iPhones have dual SIM functionality?
