After launching the most expensive smartphone in the world, Apple is now believed to have three new iPhone models in the pipeline.

According to MacRumors, renowned analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo has said that Apple will launch three new iPhones in 2018, consisting of 5.5-inch and 6.1-inch models along with a giant 6.5-inch screen model that would be the largest display ever seen on an iPhone. Comparatively, the current iPhone X features a 5.8-inch display and the iPhone 8 Plus has a 5.5-inch display.

Kuo believes that the 6.5-inch and the 5.8-inch models will use OLED screen technology similar to the iPhone X. Moreover, the company will launch the 6.1-inch model with a more traditional LCD display, marking it as the entry-level model for the flagship iPhone range.

"We believe the major hardware difference in the two new OLED models is size, in a bid to satisfy various needs of the high-end market," he said.

Additionally, Kuo says all three phones are expected to feature a full-screen design and 3D sensing; and added that Face ID will replace the home button completely in 2018.
