The plan to stick with LCD comes as Apple grapples with sluggish sales of the iPhone XR, which has cut into its most recent revenue projection. That is partly because the planned LCD handset has been in the product pipeline for months and the plan can’t be altered easily, they said.
It's believed that Apple could drop the LCD model in 2020, completing its shift to OLED displays for iPhone.
To make the 2019 smartphone lineup more enticing, Apple plans to introduce some new camera features including a triple-lens rear camera for its high-end 6.5-inch model and dual-lens camera for the LCD model.
Sources also claim that Apple is considering trimming functions from its 2019 iPhones to cut costs. This could include the force-touch module though one person said "the function could live on in other components".
Apple isn't expected to unveil its next generation devices until this fall. Until then, you can follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
