There will also be a smaller version succeeding the current iPhone X, with a diagonal screen size of 5.8 inches. However, it's worth to note here that the 6.1-inch iPhone would be adopting a lower-resolution screen.
Despite all this, the sources are calling this an "s" year meaning incremental updates rather than a complete design overhaul. It would also be the second iPhone to have an OLED display, a premium feature to be carried over from. It's unclear what specific changes will be made.
Disclosed by Kuo, leaked specifications reveal an LCD screen for the base 6.1-inch model. This goes in line with previous reports claiming that Apple has been working on a new display for its watch series. All new devices will boast new gesture controls and Apple's face-unlocking Face ID system.
Extra confirming old rumors, all three models will bear Face ID, and the two elevated iPhones will bear twin-SIM card slots "in not lower than some areas". The feature will make it easier to switch between carriers when country hopping.
It would also appeal to global users who often travel to multiple countries. As per the report, Apple is all set to announce the devices in September itself.
Although the dates haven't been confirmed, there are also reports that Apple will be launching the updated Watch and iPad Pros real soon.
WHAT ARE THE 2018 iPHONE RUMOURS SO FAR?
When will the new iPhone launch? The new models will come in 11- and 12.9-inch sizes and will feature slimmer bezels around their displays. Foxconn, meanwhile, manufactures both OLED iPhones and won 30% of LCD iPhone orders, with the rest going to Pegatron. The less expensive iPhone will reportedly be available in a variety of colors, with earlier rumors calling for gray, blue, red and orange versions. First, the iPhone X, with a price tag that started at a thousand dollars, did not sell as well as analysts had hoped, which should be no surprise. Tim Bajarin, an analyst with Creative Strategies explains how the youth these days prefer watching videos on their phones and consequently the demand for larger screens is inevitable.
Bolstered by the volume production of the new iPhone models, Foxconn saw its July revenues hit a new high ever seen for the same month and its revenue growth momentum is expected to remain through the end of 2018.
Experts believe the lack of interest in the phone is largely due to the notch, which many potential Chinese customers believe removes too much space on the screen.
