Apple switched to glass panels on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X this year to support that feature.

Sources told Nikkei that Apple was also planning to release two iPhones with OLED screens. 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. The bigger OLED iPhone will likely take the iPhone X's spot as the most expensive iPhone, meanwhile the smaller 5.8-inch version may end up being around the same price as the iPhone 8 Plus at launch.

A report out of Nikkei and spotted by 9to5Mac claims Apple may revert back to a metal back for one of its iPhones next year instead of opting for glass.

American consumer bible Consumer Reports conducted rigorous tests on the £999 device - and concluded that you're better off with an iPhone 8.

Apple is not expected to update its iPhone X lineup until late 2018. Casetek, a subsidiary of iPhone 8 manufacturer Pegatron Corp., could be selected to make the LCD iPhone. Touch ID was also replaced with the new Face ID in the 10th anniversary phone.

What colleagues think about Matt Lauer after sexual assault allegations
Lauer had renewed his contract a year ago for a $25 million annual salary through 2018. At least three women told Variety they were victims of sexual harassment by Lauer.

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. These sources spoke with Nikkei and the information does fit in well with some things that KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has stated previously.

NIkkei's report does not mention the design of the phones' front panel. Rumors surrounding the iPhone X had been swirling for well over a year in advance.

Apple is reportedly working on a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone that's scheduled for release in 2018.

The Japanese securities firm also claims that there will be an OLED iPhone that will feature a 5.8-inch display. Other items that Kuo has talked about on the smartphones include all three having a full-screen edge-to-edge design and a TrueDepth camera like what is found in the iPhone X today.
