Apple previously planned to release the LCD version instead of the OLED one in the 5.8-inch segment due to MBOM concerns. On the contrary, analysts are now reporting that there will be two OLED iPhones this year and one of them, a 5.85-inch model, might, in fact, be the cheapest iPhone this year. In 2017, the company released the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X, which features all the major changes that had been rumored for years.
The iPhone X Plus and iPhone X successor will both feature an OLED panel, with the larger model sporting a massive 6.5-inch screen.
When Apple announced the iPhone X past year many were shocked about the $999 starting price.
The iPhone X, Apple's first OLED phone, uses Samsung technology. Those could include updated iPad Pro tablets that borrow the Face ID technology found on the iPhone X, as well as a likely refresh of the entry-level 9.7-inch iPad.

The jump sized iPhone could have a 6.5-inch display and a resolution of 1242 x 2688 pixels. A new report making rounds on the web now suggests that the 5.8-inch model could possibly be the cheapest iPhone model to launch this year, despite the OLED display.
Apple has been dogged by reports of late that the iPhone X is too expensive. This shows that there's room for Apple to improve - and, frankly, improve dramatically - on this relatively annoying aspect of the iPhone X in future models.
Some details of iPhone SE 2 have been leaked, which seem to be at variance with the earlier rumors about this budget handset from the Apple.
In particular, the iPhone X supply side ramp was held back by limited production of the Infrared lasers used in the TrueDepth camera system.
