    Next year's 6.1-inch iPhone will revert to a more colorful metal back: report

Now, a report by Nikkei says that the LCD model “will probably sport a metal back” and be “available in several colors.” The paper cites a single unnamed source that supports Kuo's claim of two premium OLED-based iPhones, but differs slightly on the dimensions of what would presumably be the...

    Hot on the heels of the report that all 2018 iPhones will sport the "notch and horns" design indeed, comes another tidbit straight from the Land of the Rising Sun. This time, the Japanese sources deal with one particular member of Apple's expected 2018 family, the rumored "budget" model with a 6.1" display.
    It is apparently prepped as Apple's silver bullet for getting away from over-reliance on Korean suppliers , as not only is it supposed to come with an LCD, instead of OLED display panel, but now Nikkei is also reporting that it will sport a ...
