New iPhone X Leak 'Confirms' Apple's Serious Problems

Following months of leaks, the iPhone 9 has emerged as Apple's most exciting new smartphone of 2018. Unfortunately, the world’s most acclaimed iPhone insider has now revealed it contains several significant shortcomings…  

In a detailed new report obtained by 9to5Mac, famously accurate analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed the iPhone 9 (which I predict to simply be called ‘iPhone’) will actually amount to a lot less than the ‘affordable iPhone X’ hype many reports have claimed.

Breaking down Kuo’s findings highlights no less than seven significant areas where Apple will cut costs with the iPhone 9 in comparison to the premium iPhone X Plus and second generation iPhone X (sometimes called the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Plus). Let’s break them down:

Inferior Display And Resolution

Yes, it has long been known that the iPhone 9 will have an LCD display while the new iPhone X and iPhone X Plus use OLED. But Kuo states the 6.1-inch iPhone 9 will also have a very low native resolution of just 1792 x 828 pixels.

This is not only significantly worse than the iPhone X (2436 x 1125) and iPhone X Plus (2688 x 1242) but given 6-inches panels on Android phones typically have 2880 x 1440 native resolutions, the iPhone 9 is seriously off the pace for such a big phone.
