The analyst predicts that the “L” design will be kept in two of the devices as it is more space efficient. So the iPhone with 5.8-inch OLED display can be between 2,900mAh and 3,000mAh, which could mean an increase of about 10% next year.

Already the rumored model with 6.5 inch OLED display (which would be an "iPhone X Plus"), would also have the "L" format on its battery, with a capacity between 3.300mAh and 3.400mAh an even higher jump.

As the analyst has quoted earlier, Apple would also launch next year a device with the design of the "X", but with a 6.1-inch LCD screen to offer as an input model. For this one, Kuo now states that the battery would still be rectangular, but would be between 2,850mAh and 2,950mAh.

Given the fact that many Kuo predictions for this year really did happen, there is a high probability of success here.

Finisar also announced that it has acquired a land of about 65,000m which, once functional, can help the company achieve revenue of $ 30 million. That makes a lot of sense if we look at Apple's other VCSEL vendor, Lumentum, which already reached $ 40 million in the September quarter.

Then come the 2018 iPhones with their improved batteries and Face ID!
