Just two weeks after the iPhone X launch, rumours are already flooding the internet of Apple's plans for 2018.

According to KGI securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will look to roll out three iPhone X style phones next year - all of which will not have a home button.

The 5.8-inch iPhone X will reportedly remain, the iPhone Plus variant will be replaced by a massive 6.5-inch iPhone X XL, and a 6.1-inch LCD screen model will be available as the "budget" handset.

The iPhone X launch was slowed this year because of manufacturing delays with the new OLED display (which is made by Apple's biggest rival, Samsung).

The iPhone makers reportedly expect the process to be accelerated by next year and plan to ship 50% more stock over the new phone's lifecycle.

KGI predicts 2018 will be the end for Touch ID and that all iPhone models will embrace Face ID. The price is predicted to remain at $999 (£999) for the base 5.8 inch model. The 6.1 inch LCD model would start between $649 and $749 because of the cheaper build quality.

The iPhone X XL's pixel density would supposedly be around 500 pixels per inch (PPI). That still falls well short of the 2015 Sony Xperia Z5 Premium (the industry leader) which is around 800 PPI.

Kuo, the man behind the predictions, has connections to workers in Apple's Asian supply chain, according to MacRumors.com. He correctly predicated that Apple would scrap Touch ID in the 10th anniversary iPhone.

Apple has endured a rocky start to life with the iPhone X. The new flagship has been knocked around by several glitches, including a screen freeze brought on by cold weather.

Apple has addressed the problem and is aiming to fix it with a software patch. There are also a small number of users who are getting green lines down the middle of their displays, a glitch only associated with an OLED screen.
