IPhone 8 Beats the iPhone X in Durability Tests

  • Apple may bring back the metal casing for a 2018 iPhone

Opting to not use OLED displays for all of its iPhones next year makes sense for Apple and will ensure the company is not completely dependant on rival Samsung Electronics Co. CR described the latest iPhone model an "innovative device with a fantastic camera and attractive display", but average durability. This is in spite of Apple's decision to move forward with OLED screens for its flagship handsets. According to the long-time reviewer of just about anything that's ever been on American retail shelves, the iPhone 8 is more durable than the iPhone X, and can operate longer on a fully charged battery than the more-expensive model.

Looking ahead to 2018, Apple's iPhone lineup stands to become more varied than ever. "The 6.1-inch LCD model will likely sport a metal back [like older iPhone handsets] and will come in several colors", the source was quoted as saying. The body for the aluminum device is to be made by Casetek, which is a Pegatron subsidiary, according to the sources. All the three 2017 iPhones come with a glass back to support wireless charging. But Apple is not going to switch entirely from LCD to OLED next year.

Apple is also rumored to be launching two other iPhone moels next year.

The two sport a big difference in screen, as the iPhone X got a huge upgrade into OLED, which offers ideal blacks and more vivid colors, as well as higher resolution 2436 x 1125. iPhone 8 still uses the old IPS LCD display. The report noted that while LG's goal is to enter Apple's supply chain in full force in 2019, LG may be able to begin producing some OLED displays by the second half of 2018. The report stated that LG Display was in the process of setting up production equipment in order to supply Apple with some 60 million OLED panels, with expectations being that production would start around June 2018. The nearly bezel-less phone sports a screen that stretches right to the edges, a futuristic design that makes it more eye-catching than usual. All three handsets will come with Apple's TrueDepth camera for Face ID. The display on the phone is expected to feature a 6.1-inch tall TFT LCD display.
