iPhone X Plus OLED and iPhone LCD: What is the difference?
Apple may launch at least three new iPhones this fall. Here are the key technologies that are expected to appear on two of the three new iPhone models: the 6.1-inch lcd screen iPhone and the iPhone X Plus 6.5-inch OLED display.
The 6.1-inch iPhone will use LCD technology from vendors such as Japan Display Inc. (JDI) – now the leading LCD supplier for Apple.
Last year, JDI announced 6-inch LCD “Full Active” LCD technology, which allowed screens to reach near-zero viewing angles. Accordingly: “The new LCD module design will allow the size of a smartphone to almost match the screen size. Such features will contribute to the creation of brand new smartphones. ”
Many rumors come from reliable sources pointing out that Apple has produced a prototype of a 6.1-inch LCD screen without screen, with “rabbit ears” on the top. Therefore, it is possible that this iPhone has used JDI technology – of course if this technology can actually be mass produced.
Meanwhile, the iPhone X Plus with 6.5-inch OLED screen will be equipped with the latest and most advanced OLED display technology, almost certainly provided by Samsung. Aoole is looking for other OLED vendors such as LG Display, and possibly JDI. But it is still unclear whether LG Display will be able to meet the quality and quantity required by Apple, and JDI is “unable to mass-produce OLEDs,” according to Nikkei (although JDI plans to mass-produce OLED displays for smartphones in 2019).
The source said the 6.5-inch iPhone will have a resolution of 1,242 x 2,688 pixels, a density of 455 PPI, while some supply chains claim that the screen is close to 500 PPI. For comparison, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8’s 6.3-inch OLED screen has a resolution of 2,960 x 1,440, and a 521 PPI.
Why take Note 8 to compare? Apple’s OLED screen is likely to be manufactured by Samsung. The Note 8 screen has no borders, and has an edge-to-edge design

Both machines will continue to inherit design from the iPhone X: a large screen phone, overflowing, and no bigger than the existing iPhone.
Mac Otakara of Japan said in May that the 6.5-inch iPhone would be the same size (or not much larger) with the iPhone 8 Plus 5.5-inch. This is possible because the front of the 6.5-inch iPhone will be completely screen, rather than a large space like the iPhone 8 Plus.
Meanwhile, the 6.1-inch iPhone will be somewhere between the new 5.8-inch iPhone and the 6.5-inch iPhone (based on the rendered image above). However, it will not have the strengths dedicated to the OLED screen iPhone.
The overflow screen also means that the Home button will not come back.
RBC Capital Markets analyst Amit Daryanani said that the new iPhone X will cost $ 899, and the iPhone X Plus will be the same as the $ 999 iPhone X. iPhone 6.1-inch LCD will have the lowest price in all 3, about 799 USD. Of course this is just speculation. The 6.1-inch model may be a bit cheaper, and the 6.5-inch model might be a bit more expensive.
Apple will seek to make the 6.1-inch iPhone affordable by eliminating the need for high-end features such as wireless charging and complex rear camera clusters. In addition, cheaper LCD technology than OLED will also help lower the price of this iPhone. Interestingly, in a Wall Street Journal article, it was said that “a hardware engineer at Apple said that the company had not noticed a clear advantage of OLED versus LCD.”
