Leaked images allegedly show display and other components for 'iPhone X Plus'

Further considerations of the phone come from LG as Apple previous year invested around $ 3 billion for making OLED displays for the company.

The report says that the body of this so-called iPhone X Plus will feature roughly the same dimensions as the iPhone 8 Plus, but with an OLED screen which is an inch larger thanks to most of the bezels getting cut. The Cupertino-based giant had started using OLED display with iPhone X. The big iPhone will also include Face ID to unlock the device, and authorize mobile payments. Both of these phones will feature stainless steel edges, and there is a possibility Apple will add a gold color option for both of these pricier iPhones. The cheaper model will replace the current Apple iPhone 8, which comes with a dated design as compared to other premium smartphones present in the market. However, Apple needs to be a little more careful with the pricing strategy they adopt for the cheaper variants. It, too, will use OLED technology and could include a resolution of 2688 x 1242 (at least that's what Apple's now testing).

Samsung now supplies displays for the iPhone X, but we've been hearing for quite some time that Apple will be tapping LG to help out in the future.

With the new lineup, Apple plans to also launch its biggest iPhone yet, one that will be larger than existing iPhone 8 Plus, and rival Samsung's Galaxy Note 8. Looks like now Apple will also include that color option in upcoming iPhones.

Apple hasn't made a final decision on including the feature and could choose to wait for E-SIM technology, which will connect phones to multiple networks without the need for a removable chip.

KGI also said 2018 will be the end for Touch ID and that all iPhone models will embrace Face ID. But he doesn't think it will have a measurable impact on demand because many consumers will want the bigger model.

Apple has also embraced the used iPhone market as a way to expand its share of smartphone users.

The Apple Post on Monday shared leaked images supposedly from within an LG display production facility in Vietnam which offered our first glimpse at Apple's rumoured 6.5-inch "iPhone X Plus".
