According to Korean news site ETNews, Apple's 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone versions will debut next year, using an entirely new OLED screen from Samsung.
The two models - iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, will use a new Samsung display technology called Y-OCTA that allows the induction circuit to be placed directly on the OLED panel. With that, it will remove a separate layer of screen, creating a thinner display and reducing production costs.
While this new type of Y-OCTA displays will be available for the high-end 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone versions, the cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone version will still use the traditional OLED screen manufactured by Samsung and LG. Meanwhile, Chinese display maker BOE is no longer a display supplier for iPhone 12.
With the launch of the 6.7-inch iPhone, this will be the largest iPhone ever. This year's iPhone 11 Pro Max currently has a 6.5-inch screen.
Contrary to the iPhone Max version, the iPhone Pro version will be smaller with the arrival of a 5.4-inch iPhone next year. It will be even smaller than this year's 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro.
2020 could be the year with many major changes for the iPhone, when there are rumors about two new screen sizes, a redesigned metal frame, with two flat sides, similar to the old iPhone 4. here. There is also a ToF 3D sensor on the rear camera cluster, 5G connectivity support, and 6GB of RAM.
Many other reports also suggest that Apple will launch a new iPhone that supports both Face ID and Touch ID under the screen, but it is unclear whether such devices will launch in 2020 or 2021. The Touch ID feature will likely allow users to unlock with their fingerprint anywhere on the screen.
Aside from the aforementioned versions of the iPhone, it is rumored that Apple will launch another low-cost version of the iPhone in early 2020 - the successor to the iPhone SE. This device is expected to help Apple cover all customer segments, even the low-cost segment that is absolutely dominated by Android devices.
