IPhone 8 Beats the iPhone X in Durability Tests

IPhone 8 Beats the iPhone X in Durability Tests

The iPhone X Plus is also mooted to come with dual SIM support. A new report fresh from Japan is claiming that the Cupertino giant is in the process of developing a 6.1-inch handset with LCD screen. 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.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus sport LCD panels. Ltd will only be able to provide Apple with an estimated 10 million OLED displays in 2018, according to Eric Chiou, an analyst at Taipei-based research company WitsView Technology Corp.

It looks like the rumors surrounding Apple's 2018 iPhone plans are already beginning to swirl.

The two sport a big difference in screen, as the iPhone X got a huge upgrade into OLED, which offers flawless blacks and more vivid colors, as well as higher resolution 2436 x 1125. iPhone 8 still uses the old IPS LCD display. In October Patently Apple posted a report titled "Apple may Gain BOE as a new Supply Chain Participant for future Flexible OLED Displays".

The metal casing for the 2018 LCD iPhone will be supplied by Casetek, which is a subsidiary of Apple's manufacturing partner Pegatron.

The iPhone X performed about the same as two other flagship phones, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, Consumer Reports said.

The Nikkei report speculates that Apple's decision may be born from wanting to reduce its dependency on smartphone rival Samsung, its sole provider of OLED screens. The 5.8-inch OLED iPhone would offer a pixel density of 458ppi, same as the current iPhone X. The 6.5-inch OLED iPhone would have a pixel density of 480-500ppi.

Switching from OLED to LCD wouldn't be a big deal, provided that it entails a lower price. Other items that Kuo has talked about on the smartphones include all three having a full-screen edge-to-edge design and a TrueDepth camera like what is found in the iPhone X today.
