"Apple expects 45 million preorders of the 6.5" OLED iPhone

The source claims that Apple has ordered 45 million panels for the big-margin Plus model, 25 million for the 5.8-inch model that will replace the iPhone X, and 30 million for the supposedly cheaper 6.1-inch LCD model. There's a mention of Apple's orders changing depending on the market conditions and customer demand.

After months of rumours and leaked news reports claiming the existence of the Apple iPhone SE 2, a new report by Forbes now claimed that Apple may have completely cancelled the iPhone SE 2 altogether.

The new iPhone X, iPhone X Plus and affordable LCD iPhone X from Apple have appeared online in dummy form featured in a video.

Apple is not expected to launch a smaller iPhone SE 2 this year.

The report also cites that the LCD iPhone's production has been delayed since the panel suppliers are facing issues with its yield.

Coming to the most premium 6.4-inch OLED iPhone, the dimensions are at 157.53x77.44x7.85mm, which is somewhat close to the iPhone 8 Plus dimensions (iPhone 8 Plus is 1mm shorter, 1mm wider, and 0.35mm thinner). These two will carry OLED displays and undoubtedly a hefty price tag, especially the 6.5-inch model which is rumored to have a new triple camera setup to enhance the AR capabilities.

Apple is expected to unveil its 2018 iPhone lineup in less than three months from now.

The iPhone X sold very well at its $999 price point a year ago, but the "super cycle" of upgraders did not materialise in the way some investors expected. The report is in line with previous reports in that there will be a 5.8-inch model and a massive 6.5-inch model.
