Apple’s 2018 iPhone X range will feature more RAM and larger batteries, rumours suggest, with one model using modern LCD technology to ensure an ultra slim design.
As with all pre-release speculation regarding the new iPhone X line-up, the inside line comes from KGI analyst Ming Chi Kuo.

Once again, Kuo has delivered more information about a 6.1–inch iPhone X with an LCD screen, which he says Apple is priming as a more affordable take on the current, OLED–equipped iPhone X.
He claims Apple has enlisted major Taiwanese assembly firms to put together the new device, with plans to use a new screen from Japan Display that will allow for 0.5mm bezels around the side of the handset.
Regular LCDs usually require larger edges.
Citing supply-chain sources, he also predicts that Apple’s forthcoming OLED screen-toting iPhone X handsets, one with a 5.8–inch screen, the other a larger 6.5–inch Plus model, will pack a massive 4GB of RAM.

Additionally, the iPhone X Plus is thought to have a battery 25% larger than the current model, meaning it should stay alive much longer than one day.
All three models are expected to launch in late 2018.
