KGI reports that Apple will launch three models of iPhones with varying screen sizes viz. 4.7-inch LCD, 5.5-inch LCD and 5.8-inch OLED. It has also ruled out the speculations of the OLED display iPhone's delayed launch and stated that all the three smartphones will be launched together although the OLED iPhone will have a constrained supply.
