Mr. Kuo, who obtained a report on the next iPhone created by Mr. Kuo, predicted that Mr. Kuo "In the 2018 model, the 6.1-inch model adopting the liquid crystal display will account for half of the unit sales" I report it. 6.1 inches model that adopts the cheapest liquid crystal display compared with the organic EL display gathers popularity among the three models due to the slump of iPhone X whose high price is a bottleneck and the number of sales is significantly less than expected That's why. In addition, the 6.1-inch LCD model also adopts the "face ID" face recognition function like the iPhone X and adopts the "notch (notched)" design.
According to Mr. Kuo, the iPhone 6.1-inch model is not a L-shaped battery like the iPhone X but a general rectangular battery and it is designed to place importance on cost. I will explain the standing position of the 6.1-inch model if it is important to increase the number of new purchasers and increase the share in the smartphone market rather than upgrading the performance.
Also, Mr. Quo points out the possibility that it will not become a bezelless design like the iPhone X due to the design problem of liquid crystal display, but JDI has already announcedFULL ACTIVEIt is possible to unify in notch design if it is.
The production of the 2018 model of the iPhone is conducted by three companies, Pegatron, Foxconn, and Wistron, and it makes a prediction that Pegatron will be responsible for 60% of the whole.
Mr. Kuo predicts that lineup of the 6.1 inch model with a relatively inexpensive liquid crystal display will be welcomed by investors who are interested in Apple's performance as well as users who purchase the iPhone.
