A launch of a new iPhone is always a time for great excitement and prediction. It is, by far, one of the most important events in the smartphone industry. And September is getting nearer, the month in which Apple will be launching not one, but three new iPhones. All with the new notch display.
Of the three, two will be sporting OLED screens while the third one will come with an LCD panel, and this is going to be the budget iPhone. The latest news on this one is that the launch of the LCD iPhone, with 6.1-inch display size, has been delayed by a month. It is now said to launch in October while its reveal would likely be with the OLED iPhones in September.
The reason is said to be an issue with the LCD panel itself. The engineers are finding it a challenge to eliminate the bleeding of the light from below the LCD screen. That definitely doesn’t look good and is clearly unacceptable. The LCD display is being supplied by LG while the tuning is done by Apple.
Still, if we compare this delay with that of the original iPhone X, it is still not as bad. The iPhone X was delayed by 6 weeks. This is likely to be 4 weeks maximum. Secondly, the upcoming iPhones will be arriving in more colors than ever, and one of them will be the red. However, the 6.1-inch budget iPhone will not get the red color, at least not initially.
