In January, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a great track record when it comes to revealing yet-to-be-announced news on upcoming Apple products, said we should expect three new iPhones to be announced September, with one of them being a 6.1-inch model that is a cross between the iPhone X and iPhone 8.

In addition to not having 3D Touch as reported earlier, KGI's Kuo (via Feng) believes that Apple will be using a stronger display glass which will be more impact resistant and lighter. The inclusion this technology and the replacement of the previous will however result in 15% increase in the cost of the touch panel which would result in an eventual increase of purchase price from $23 to $26. However, the 2016 iPhone SE did well without the 3D Touch by using an Android-esque long-press gesture.

Apple recently filed to register 11 separate iPhone models and tech commentators suggest it's likely that several model numbers will be attached to each iPhone, rather than each being for an individual release. Kuo beforehand noticed that the 6.1-inch model wouldn't have 3D Touch, and now we have more insights about it.

Since the launch of 3D touch, the company couldn't increase its integration into more areas of iOS.

The new thing used would be called "Cover Glass Sensor" or CGS which would relocate the iPhones touch module to surface glass from the display panel. It's a complex technology made of specialized sensors integrated into the iPhone's display that determines how hard a user is pressing. Although Apple's 3D Touch functionality seemed quite elegant, it also had some serious issues. Although the analyst didn't say as much, it's possible that Apple might completely ditch the 3D Touch feature on all future iPhones beyond 2019.
