Kuo: Apple to Maintain Same iPhone Mix in 2019 With 5.8 and 6.5-Inch OLED iPhones, 6.1-Inch LCD

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who often accurately predicts Apple's future device plans, believes the company will continue to offer three iPhones in 2019 with the same general lineup seen in 2018.

In a note to investors about Apple supplier Luxshare's predicted market share released this morning, Kuo included a chart that suggests Apple will continue to offer 5.8 and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones in 2019, along with one 6.1-inch LCD model.


That's the same lineup used this year, which consists of the 5.8 and 6.5-inch OLED iPhone XS and XS Max and the 6.1-inch iPhone XR.

Rumors about the 2019 iPhones have been circulating for a few months now, but this is the first time that we've heard specific details on the number of devices we can expect to see in 2019 and their screen sizes.

Given that 2018 is sort of an "S" upgrade year with no major changes to the iPhone X design introduced in 2017, there was a possibility that Apple could condense its iPhone lineup or introduce new screen sizes, but it looks like we may be sticking with the current lineup for at least another year.


Other 2019 iPhone rumors have suggested the upcoming iPhones will adopt faster, more efficient A13 chips from TSMC, triple lens rear camera systems, revamped front-facing TrueDepth camera systems, and perhaps support for the Apple Pencil.

Details about all of the rumors we've heard about the new devices so far can be found in our 2019 iPhones roundup.

iPhone SE X would be a more appropriate name, more family friendly too.

Well now we can have the iPhone XSE. :)

How about a 5" iPhone X as a replacement for the SE? 5.8" and 6.5" are too big.

That Xr is about to sell like hot cakes. As someone who owns a third party repair shop I’m thankful because those OLED screens are so expensive that people who don’t have some form of insurance just live with the crack and don’t fix them. We don’t do a lot of iPhone X repairs.

I don't think this year was exactly a simple S cycle.The Max being a different size is a big product differentiation from the original X. The XR is a completely new beast. If only the XS was released then I would agree it is a simple S year. For the people that want a redesign next year, you are in for disappointment. Look how long it went with the last models.

now can somebody howl "bring back the SE"?
