It'll be joined by a second OLED iPhone with a 5.8-inch display, which is meant to be the successor to last year's iPhone X and offers improvements in CPU speed and camera quality.

Apple is reportedly launching these devices in September if previous patterns hold.

Two of these new iPhones will be follow-ups to the iPhone X, while the third new iPhone will cater to developing markets - such as India - owing to its relatively more utilitarian design and aggressive price. It will come in multiple colors, reminiscent of the iPhone 5c.

This information comes from a lengthy report published by Bloomberg. If the new LCD iPhone really is like a cheaper iPhone X, it's already going to be in demand; add in supply issues, and you can guarantee that this will be the hardest iPhone to buy in stores. While the more potent of the lot has been code-named D33, the one that should ideally replace the iPhone X has been code-named D32. While the older iPhone X had a large screen than the Pluses of years past, in practice, Apple did not support those layouts om the smaller handset, likely due to its width. It's said to include a large 6.1-inch LCD screen, which would dwarf the iPhone 8's 4.7-inch display and the 8 Plus's 5.5-inch display. All the three new iPhones will reportedly pack processors sourced from TSMC, and primary camera lenses from Largan Precision Co. There's also the fact that if Apple introduced stylus support to its iPhones, every blog on the internet would have a field day replaying this clip of Steve Jobs's opinion on styluses.

As we've come to expect from Kuo, the really interesting stuff concerns the production details for the different models. Also, Apple is expected to finally announce availability specifics of its long-delayed AirPower wireless charger.
