For a while, expectations were high that this year’s 6.1-inch “budget” iPhone would feature a design that is a bit less attractive than its more premium siblings, the iPhone X 2018 and the iPhone X Plus. If recent reports are any indication, however, it appears that Apple might be looking to implement the exact same design, bezels and all, to all of its iPhone offerings this year, including the 6.1-inch iPhone.
Prior to these new reports, speculations were abounding that Apple would have to give the 2018 iPhone a thicker bezel than its more premium counterparts, due to limitations to LCD technology. OLED panels, such as the ones that Apple uses for the iPhone X, after all, are flexible, allowing the Cupertino-based tech giant to design the device with minimal bezels all around. Considering that LCD panels are not as flexible, rumors have emerged stating that the 6.1-inch iPhone would have relatively thick bezels around the display.
