Apple’s iPhone line to fully encompass screens …

Apple Inc plans to launch three new iPhone models this year, including one with an LCD screen, to succeed in its XR model, the Wall street journal reported January 11.

The iPhone maker also intends to introduce new camera features, according to the report, citing people familiar with the matter.

Apple was not immediately available for comment outside of normal business hours.

The Cupertino, California-based company decided to stick with a liquid crystal display (LCD) at a time when sluggish iPhone XR sales hit its most recent revenue projection, according to the report.

Last week, Apple issued its first revenue warning in nearly 12 years, citing poor Chinese demand, causing its shares to slide 10 percent, its biggest intraday drop in six years.

Apple plans to continue with the LCD model as the device has been on the production line for months, according to the report.

However, by 2020, Apple will completely switch to Organic Light-Emitting Diode, or OLED, a display for iPhones, and thus will completely eliminate the LCD model, according to the report.
