Apple to overhaul iPhone sizes in 2020, according to report

Apple will overhaul iPhone screen sizes in 2020, according to ETNews.

The company is widely expected to release new models that are both smaller and larger than the currently-available iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max models.

According to ETNews, Apple will launch a smaller 5.4-inch iPhone next year, as well as an iPhone with a 6.1-inch screen and another at an incredible 6.7 inches, the largest to date.

The current iPhone 11 family measures in at 6.1-inches, 5.8-inches and 6.5-inches by comparison, suggesting some big changes to the smallest (11 Pro) and largest (11 Pro Max).

Apple will reportedly source the new 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch screens from Samsung, using OLED technology that’s currently used in the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

For the cheaper iPhone with an LCD display, LG will reportedly serve as the primary supplier.

At present, the iPhone 11 uses an LCD display, as it’s much cheaper to produce than the OLED display featured in the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max phones.

Whilst the Average Joe won’t notice too much of a difference, the LCD display doesn’t offer the same large color range or bright whites and deep blacks at the OLED.

ETNews added that Apple will launch more than four smartphones in 2020, adding that at least one model would support 5G technology.

That corresponds to TF International Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo, who previously suggested all three of Apple’s flagship phones will feature a 5G modem, and that the company would launch a budget iPhone SE 2 in the spring.
