According to MacRumors and a Chinese website named Feng, the new 6.1 inch iPhone will be using a newer type of display which will increase the price of the panel heavily. To keep the costs low, Apple might ditch 3D Touch. However, new reports about the next iPhone suggest that a version of the iPhone 11 will not support 3D Touch. For instance, a hard-press on the Photos app brings up a few options, including the Most Recent folder, Favorites, One Year Ago, and Search.
KGI Securities' Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst with a successful track record of past predictions, suggested a 6.1-inch iPhone may be on the way with a lot of the 5.65 inch iPhone X's features - but at a cheaper price. As per Kuo, the phone will sport a stronger display glass which will not only be lighter but also more robust.
But there's a downside. Reportedly, the newer display will cost somewhere between $23 and $26 higher.
As reported earlier and several times before, the affordable 6.1-inch iPhone will not have 3D Touch. Although Apple's 3D Touch functionality seemed quite elegant, it also had some serious issues.

The KGI report also states that starting from 2019, all iPhones, including the OLED models, will use the CGS process. The Cupertino-based tech giant is planning shelve 3D Touch to pave way for CGS display. Most 3D features can easily be replaced with a simple touch-and-hold method, or long-pressing as it's more commonly called.
The main reason behind the move is because of the cost factors involved with the production fo CGS screen.
Apple introduced 3D touch with iPhone 6s and while the company marketed it as an innovative product, it was nothing more than a gimmick.
