"According to a few reports floating around today, KGI Securities sent out a research note claiming that the third mystery iPhone model that we pointed to in August may turn out to be a 6.1" iPhone with an LCD display.
But the "green line of death" isn't the only problems faced by the iPhone X. MacRumors also reports that over two dozens of users have reported of a crackling sound on the iPhone X's front-facing earpiece speaker. There doesn't appear to be any correlation between different configurations of the iPhone X. Exactly how a software update will tackle this issue remains to be seen as a problem with the screen freezing suggests it may be a hardware fault instead.
It's only been one week since the latest iPhone X was made available to users worldwide.
Apple said: "We are aware of instances where the iPhone X screen will become temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid change to a cold environment". So it's always wise to know what you might be in for before investing Rs 1 lakh on the iPhone X.
One user says a little cracking is heard whenever the volume is at max levels. Last week, Apple had also warned users that the iPhone X's OLED screen might fall prey to screen burn in, and advised users to keep the brightness as low as possible to avoid the problem. "EXCEPT the Horrendous sound Quality/Speaker issues - Crackling/Sound with WAY too much Treble".
Apple has so far declined to comment on the issue, and has replaced affected units without charging users. Many users have shared their concern about this defect on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Apple official forums.
Kuo added that in order to target the low-end and mid-range smartphone markets, Apple is also working on a new LCD model with a large 6.1-inch display, which will "differ significantly" from the OLED models. Apple's TrueDepth camera system, along with the associated Face ID feature, will be standard.
