The highly anticipated budget iPhone X, the 6.1-inch device of this year with FaceID might end up using the same MLCD+display technology as the latest release from LG’s G7 ThinQ smartphone as per BusinessKorea.
Talking about the source, Business Korea does have reliable sources inside the supply chain but hasn’t been able to predict the company’s future plans most of the time making this rumour a little less reliable.
Whats better and awesome about these screens is that the traditional LCD screen has three sub-pixels, forming a red, blue, and green stripe, MLCD+ screens have a fourth white sub-pixel for increased brightness. The best part is that the power consumption in these screens is significantly lower. LG’s G7 has a peak brightness of 1000 nits when compared to 804 nits on the OLED screen of iPhone X.
Similar to the OLED display on the iPhone X, MLCD+ screens can also display 100 percent of the wide DCI-P3 colour gamut for improved colour accuracy. The panel in the G7 is capable of 10-bit colour depth, in case Apple indeed opts for this technology, the 6.1-inch iPhone could be more compliant with some HDR standards.
The Budget iPhone X will also have an aluminium frame rather than stainless steel, a single-lens rear camera, and may lack 3D Touch, according to former KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. He went on to predicted the that the device might be released later this year with a price range between $700 and $800. The 6.1-inch iPhone is anticipated be Apple’s first product with an edge-to-edge LCD since the iPhone X uses OLED.
There has been more news about the 3 devices that iPhone might unveil this fall. The rumours have even pointed that one or more iPhones, could sport a triple-lens camera, the third lens being used for 5x optical zoom, range finding, depth mapping and low light photography.
