IPhone models in 2018 according to KGI Securities' Ming-Chi Kuo

Analyst predicts improvement of up to 10% in the batteries of the iPhones of 2018

As we already know, the iPhone X has an “L” shaped battery with 2,716mAh, which is bigger than the rectangular ones of the iPhone 8 (1,821mAh) and 8 Plus (2,691mAh), but inferior to the ones that Apple has already delivered in its devices previously, already that the iPhone 7 Plus has 2,900mAh and the 6s Plus comes with 2,750mAh.

Who was sad knowing the battery of the current models, can rejoice with this news: Ming-Chi Kuo, the well-known analyst at KGI Securities, said that the three models that are expected to arrive in 2018 will have an increase in your batteries.

The analyst predicts that the “L” design will be maintained on two of the devices, since it is more efficient in terms of space. Thus, the iPhone with 5.8-inch OLED screen may have between 2,900mAh and 3,000mAh, which may mean that there will be an increase of about 10% next year.

The rumored model with a 6.5-inch OLED screen (which would be an “iPhone X Plus”), would also have the “L” shape on its battery, with a capacity between 3,300mAh and 3,400mAh – an even bigger leap .

As the analyst mentioned earlier, Apple would also launch next year a device with the “X” design, but with a 6.1-inch LCD screen, in order to offer it as an entry model. For this one, now Kuo says that the battery would continue to be rectangular, but would reach between 2,850mAh and 2,950mAh.

In view of the fact that many Kuo predictions for this year have actually happened, there is a high probability of success here.

Speaking of 2018 iPhones, Finise today gave a great clue that we will see TrueDepth technology and, consequently, Face ID, in all models from next year.

This is because the company, which is responsible for providing VCSEL for the technology to work, disclosed in its financial result that its revenue was in the millions (with a single digit), but that it should reach “tens of millions” of dollars a from January – that is, it is certain to be working closely to supply the component to Apple.

Finisar also announced that it has acquired a land of about 65,000m², which, once functional, can help the company achieve revenue of US $ 30 million. That figure makes a lot of sense if we look at Apple’s other VCSEL supplier, Lumentum, which already hit $ 40 million in the September quarter.

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