Samsung likely to begin manufacturing iPhone X Plus displays next month

The South Korean tech giant Samsung that famously made the displays for Apple's iPhone X previous year is going to start making displays for a new iPhone X and iPhone X Plus as reported by Taiwan's Economic Daily News. As a result, OLED production was shut down for several months, only to be restarting in May.

And if the early production of the displays work out for Samsung, then the staggered release of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X that we saw previous year could be avoided by Apple. Capacity will double in June.

This is earlier than Apple usually starts production of its next-gen handsets, but the company is keen to avoid delays. Apple has also reportedly started production on its 3D facial sensors this quarter, earlier than might be expected. A 5.8-inch OLED iPhone X2 that will cost $899, a 6.5-inch OLED iPhone X Plus that will cost $999, and a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone at $799. The iPhone X launch was delayed a year ago compared to that of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus because there were apparently issues with the production of the TrueDepth Camera system that powered the Face ID feature. All three of the handsets will include an edge-to-edge screen and no Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

What are you hoping for from Apple's 2018-era iPhones?
