3D Touch not an option on the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone

Fosmon images New screen tech may mean the end of 3D Touch on one of this year's new iPhones

But for now, if the newest report is to be believed, the company may be ditching 3D Touch feature in one of its upcoming iPhone handsets.

Ever trusty Apple future-gazer KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi-Kuo, has revealed details about the iPhone tough screen which will use Cover Glass Sensor (CGS) tech.

So far we've heard rumors of three devices from Apple including 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch phones, but the smallest and largest of those are rumored to feature OLED display tech while the one in the middle will be LCD.


If you do not wish to use 3D Touch feature, the 6.1 inch LCD iPhone will be the best option for you!

The note says it should make the screen tech both lighter and more resistant, but it also makes it 15% more expensive to make too. Starting in 2019, Apple could remove the feature from all iPhone models, according to Kuo. These sensors are able to measure how much pressure is applied when a user touches the phone's display, and then Apple's iOS software can trigger different functions based on how much pressure is applied. Reportedly, the newer display will cost somewhere between $23 and $26 higher. In this case, however, it might not be that Apple's rivals were unable to copy 3D Touch, they simply may have realized that the technology isn't particularly useful. However, the 2016 iPhone SE did well without the 3D Touch by using an Android-esque long-press gesture. Although Apple's 3D Touch functionality seemed quite elegant, it also had some serious issues.

"There are a lot of things that have to fall into place, but 3D Touch overall feels like one of those ideas that only Apple can push into the mainstream - if Samsung or Huawei had delivered a similar feature, it would nearly certainly be a gimmick".
