Apple’s 6.1-inch LCD iPhone Will Have This Secret Weapon
Apple can thank a new "0.3 LED Chip" for the decreased cost. These chips are smaller than the "0.4t LED Chips," which other LCD smartphones use, and which have large-enough connectors to require bezels of at least 0.4mm.

The report notes that the cheaper chips may sacrifice "accuracy and stability," but if Apple can make the new phone look just like a premium iPhone X, that may not matter too much to customers.

Intel’s Core i7-9700K: What We Know (And How It Could Beat AMD)
Multiple rumors and leaks strongly indicate that the ostensible Core i7-9700K will sport eight CPU cores and 16 threads, in contrast to the six cores and 12 threads on the Core i7-8700K. If this turns out to be true, it will be a first for Intel on a mainstream-grade CPU platform—as opposed to the enthusiast-targeted Core X-Series platform, which goes all the way up to 18 cores (if you can afford to drop a couple of grand on a CPU). But the eight cores on the Core i7-9700K, if that turns out to be accurate, only just matches what AMD has to offer in terms of cores and threads on its mainstream Ryzen CPUs; it doesn’t surpass the competition.

The planned rear-facing sensor would instead use a time-of-flight approach that calculates the time it takes for a laser to bounce off surrounding objects to create a three-dimensional picture of the environment.
