[UPDATE: November 14, 2017 10:30am EST] According to a Bloomberg report, Apple is aiming to create a rear-facing 3D sensor for the 2019 edition of its iPhone. The company is apparently going all-in on augmented reality and hopes a rear-facing 3D sensor can improve its flagship smartphone’s augmented reality apps and services.

Apple’s iPhone X has barely begun arriving after the shipping delays that were experienced when the smartphone was available for pre-order last month, yet we’re already hearing word that not one, not two, but three new iPhones will arrive in 2018 – and all with end-to-end displays.

According to a note, obtained by Mac Rumors, from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is planning to release what will be its flagship iPhone with a massive 6.5-inch display. The iPhone X has a 5.8-inch screen and the 8 Plus has a 5.5-inch screen, making the rumored new iPhone the largest ever.

Mac Rumors is reporting that the 6.5-inch iPhone (basically the plus version of the iPhone X) will release alongside a new 5.8-inch model and both will use OLED screen technology that’s similar to the X.

Due to OLED displays driving up the prices of iPhones, Kuo claims Apple will release a 6.1-inch model with an LCD display.

“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,” Kuo said before adding that end-to-end displays and Face ID will completely replace the home button in 2018.

With iPhone X experiencing problems such as a crackling sound and Face ID allegedly being hacked maybe the new iPhones can’t come soon enough.
