2018 iPhone glass panels revealed

“So far, we’ve heard many reports of this year’s iPhone line-up, and seen some claimed schematics, along with renders based on them, but a photo posted today claims to give us our first look at actual components from the 2018 iPhones,” Ben Lovejoy reports for 9to5Mac.

“They reportedly show the glass front panels, which cover the displays, for all three models: the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED models, with the 6.1-inch LCD model in the middle,” Lovejoy reports. “If real, they provide our first real-life look at one key element of this year’s line-up: a lower-cost LCD model which closely resembles the iPhone X design.”

“Achieving a near-bezel-free display with an LCD screen requires some new technology,” Lovejoy reports, “but even that isn’t expected to quite match the thin bezels possible with the OLED models.”

MacDailyNews Take: As this photo is from Ben Geskin, they are very likely the real deal.


    1. As the margins on an iPhone SE are significantly less than the projected 2018 iPhone, 2018 iPhone X, and 2018 iPhone X Plus, there very well may never be a 2018 (or even 2019) iPhone SE.

      Two minutes. Gee, what are we trying to achieve? The leading one line wonder with NOTHING ENLIGHTENING to say, again and again just stating the obvious we can all see, in a race to post the first comment. You remind me of a needy dope in class that sits in the front seat and because of poor self esteem always has to be recognized first by the teacher. It is really annoying, just like you here. If you can’t enlighten us with wisdom or original observations, which is painfully obvious daily, just shut up for a change and allow the smartest MDN commentators to LEAD you petulant child.
