Apple launched the iPhone X and already is preparing for the next-year flagship. According to KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Cupertino is preparing two OLED phones for 2018. The report also suggests that the phones might return to the stainless steel frames to improve data transmission quality.

The iPhone X currently has a steel frame around the edges with antenna bands dividing it in four. If the prediction is accurate, we might see a new appearance of the phone’s casing.
Currently, only the iPhone X comes with an OLED screen. According to previous info, the panels might be manufactured by Apple itself. Most likely the two new devices will be a regular device and a plus-sized version.
KGI expects Apple to ditch the Touch ID entirely for Face ID next year. It is also on its way to the iPad Pros that are coming in the spring. One thing that will not appear is the TrueDepth Camera on the rear dual-cam setup.
