Apple will enter trial production of its new iPhone series in the second quarter of the year, according to Digitimes. The article says the tech giant wants an early start to avoid the 3D sensor yield rate issues with the 2017 models.
According to Digitimes, Apple could start delivering the new iPhones early in the third quarter. That timeframe could start pushing up component maker revenues as early as quarter two, the article adds.
Apple's 2018 iPhone series are expected to consist of two OLED-based iPhones (5.85-inch and 6.45-inch) and a 6.1-inch LCD model. And all are designed to sport Face ID.
