Apple expects to launch three iPhones this year, all of which are full-screen devices and supports facial recognition. One of them is the “cheap” version, which uses an LCD screen with a screen size of 6.1-inches. The other two are OLED screens. Now, reports have it that the 6.1-inch iPhone will use Japan’s JDI’s Full Active display. With this display, this smartphone will sport ultra-thin bezel as low as 0.5mm (the iPhone X bezel is 1mm) on all four sides.
The development of Full Active display technology by Apple and JDI has been previously discussed but it was not clear which generation of iPhones will use this tech. The mass production of this smartphone commenced this month, but the yield is much lower than Apple’s expectations. Therefore, the supply chain said that Apple will postpone the launch of the 6.1-inch iPhone. This smartphone was initially expected to arrive in November. It is worth mentioning that the 6.1-inch iPhone will be equipped with a single camera, while the other two are dual-camera. Apple has always wanted to release a budget device and it appears that customers will finally get the chance to own an iPhone without breaking the bank.
