Apple's next iPhone may feature a 'Full Active LCD', according to analyst

Nikkei reported on Monday the company told its suppliers to cut iPhone X production to 20 million units for the first-quarter from the more than 40 million units target Apple gave in November.

The new iPhone X, iPhone X Plus, and lower-priced 6.1-inch iPhone are expected to launch this year.

According to Kuo, Apple will show off a new entry-level iPhone, and then two iPhone X sequels - rumoured to be called the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Plus. Apple stock took a beating last week, falling more than 4 percent on a new wave of negative iPhone commentary from Wall Street analysts, but the common theme among those analysts seems to be that the iPhone numbers don't necessarily matter. These changes will help bring costs down, leading to a lower price tag. The American company itself is thinking about lowering its sales target for OLED versions of new iPhones to be released this year, focusing more on conventional liquid crystal display versions instead. Kuo predicted in a January 23 note it could cost between $700 and $800 - significantly less than the iPhone X, but higher than the current iPhone 8 models. The news comes at a time when Apple is close to further strengthening its presence in the country.

As spotted by folks at MacRumors, Kuo in his notes for investors that Pegatron, Foxconn, and Wistron be the key assemblers of the 6.1-inch iPhone model that will feature an LCD panel against the other two reported OLED models. Additionally both the iPhone X Plus and the 5.6 inch model will have 4GB of RAM, more than the 2017 iPhone X which only has 3GB.

According to another industry executive cited in the report, Apple will not directly control prices because it's against their policy.

Apple iPhone 5c phonesThomson ReutersThe KGI Securities research, which hasn't been confirmed by Apple, suggests that the company may try to pull a trick that it last tried in 2013.

Best not get too attached to the iPhone X branding, though, as there's a chance the next-generation model will leave the factory under a different moniker.

The fourth quarter of each year is Apple's first fiscal quarter.
