2018 iPhones’ front panels surface, impressively thin bezels all around

It’s already confirmed by now that Apple is going to release three variants of this year’s iPhone – a plus-sized iPhone X, a direct successor to the iPhone X and a “budget,” by Apple’s standards, iPhone with a 6.1-inch LCD.

We’ve heard a lot about these devices for the past few weeks and months, but it’s just now we get to see how all three iPhones will look like from the front. Take a look at their panels.

We were able to find three images coming from two different sources and the panels look identical. The 6.1-inch panel in the middle features slightly thicker bezels and a bigger notch while the premium OLED panels measuring 5.8″ and 6.5″ (presumably the iPhone X and iPhone X Plus) have noticeably thinner bezels and smaller notches. We note here that the latter two feature a notch of the same size so the iPhone X Plus should deliver the best screen-to-body ratio in the lineup.

Interestingly enough, the cheaper iPhone’s the notch also has three cutouts – enough to house all the needed sensors for Apple’s Face ID to work. And the nearly non-existent chin suggests that LG and Apple have figured out how to produce the LCD panels to match the iPhone X’s aesthetics.
