Ming-Chi Kuo: Apple will launch 5.8-, 6.1-, and 6.5-inch iPhones with larger batteries in 2018

“Apple will launch three new iPhones next year with larger batteries, which should translate to longer battery life for users, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo,” Todd Haselton reports for CNBC. “Kuo’s report suggests the phones will pack high-capacity batteries thanks to new two-cell designs provided by Korean supplier LGC.”

“Kuo’s note, first reported Thursday night by AppleInsider, says Apple’s most high-end 2018 iPhone will pack a 6.5-inch OLED screen and a 3,300mAh to 3,400mAh battery, far larger than Apple’s biggest iPhone battery, the 2,716mAh in the iPhone X,” Haselton reports. “Apple will also launch a 5.8-inch iPhone with an OLED panel KGI said. That’s the same size screen on the current iPhone X, but it will reportedly pack a larger 2,900 to 3,000mAh battery.”

Haselton reports, “Finally, Kuo said Apple will sell an iPhone with a 6.1-inch traditional LCD display.”

MacDailyNews Take: While we will thoroughly enjoy our nearly perfect iPhone X units for the next 11 months, we’re definitely looking forward to the 6.5-inch “iPhone Pro” or “iPhone X Plus” or whatever they call it!

And, yes, while our iPhone X units have plenty of battery power left over each day, larger, longer-lasting batteries would certainly be appreciated.
