The ink barely dried on Apple’s iPhone event announcements, and we’re already looking to 2019, and what Apple is planning for the 2019 iPhones. Renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who is more often than not spot-on when it comes to predicting all-things-Apple, predicts what the 2019 iPhones will be like. In a recent note to investors he suggested that next year’s Apple smartphone line-up will be a trio, just like this year.
Additionally, the 2019 iPhones will mirror the line-up this year with the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone Xr. This means that next year we’ll likely see two OLED models with 5.8 and 6.5-inch screens, and one 6.1-inch LCD model.
The information is particularly interesting because this year the iPhones are in the “S” stage. This means that they’re just a minor spec-bump over last year’s iPhone X, and that next year we should expect a redesign. If Kuo is right, next year will see the same line-up with improved specs and software of course, but no major changes. We’re still almost a year out, so take this with a relatively large dose of skepticism.
