Now, a new report suggests that the Apple will unveil a bigger iPhone which will feature 6.5-inch OLED display, there is also another iPhone with 5.8-inch OLED display.

With exactly a week left until Apple unveils its 2018 iPhones, we learned on Wednesday that the iPhone X Plus version that's finally coming this year will be called iPhone XS Max. Rumours suggest that a third new handset, whose name remains is unknown, will employ a 6.1in LCD display and aim for a lower price point than the OLED iPhone XS.

A supplier report by Lumentum showed that Apple performed multiple orders for TrueDepth camera system modules, which backs up the rumors that these next three iPhones will all come with FaceID features for authentication.

It's unclear why Apple is choosing "iPhone XS Max" rather than iPhone XS Plus as the marketing name for the 6.5-inch OLED model.

Reddit user Meechflow95 has posted a snapshot of a Speck-branded back case which is reportedly for the upcoming 6.1-inch LCD iPhone 2018 model that might be called the iPhone 9.


Apple's event invitation made heavy use of the color gold, fueling speculation on social media that the company plans to launch a gold-colored successor to the iPhone X, which was made available only in silver and gray past year. We'll update you as soon as we hear anything new.

What we do know is that these next three models will come with the ability to be wirelessly charged. The phone is also rumoured with a dual-SIM option, catering highly to India and China this time. Rumored to be named the iPhone X Plus, iPhone XS and iPhone 9, it will be followed up in the next few months by the budget-friendly iPhone SE2.

iPhone XS Max is also said to have a bigger battery than the 5.8-inch iPhone XS.

With these prices the average person who wants to get a new Apple device can get the iPhone 9. Like the iPhone X, their bodies will be made from stainless steel and glass. The 6.1-inch LCD variation will be the most reasonable on the list with a $600-$700 tag price. The tech site also dropped the news that the phones would be called iPhone XS. The reports say the company will keep the iPhone X look but with the size of the iPhone 8 Plus. In this event, the company is expected to introduce the 2018 iPhones, the iPad Pro 2018, the Apple Watch Series 4 and other devices.
