6.1″ iPhone to launch a month after OLED models due to LCD issues


Analysts are reading clues from Apple’s supply line to forecast the future of the next generation iPhones. The latest prediction is that the model with a 6.1” LCD – the budget iPhone with an expected price of $ 700 – will arrive late to the party.

This iPhone will have an iPhone X-like design, which complicated things. The issue is with the LCD itself (being made by LG) – persistent issues with bleeding from the LED backlight reportedly pushed mass production back by a month.

That’s still better than the 6-week delay that was expected initially, but either way the 6.1” iPhone will launch alone in October – there are no delays for the OLED-packing 5.8” and 6.5” models and their release is on track for September.

Part of what makes the 6.1” model the budget option is that it will have a single camera. At least it will be available in a variety of colors: White, Black, Yellow, Orange, Blue, Gold (but not Red).
