iPhone X 2018 line-up EXPOSED: Leak reveals exciting news for Apple fans ahead of release
The iPhone X 2018 line-up has been the subject of much speculation with insiders predicting big things from Apple this year.
It’s been widely rumored that Apple is planning on releasing multiple iPhones this year.
The rumor mill is expecting three iPhones to be announced in September – a 6.5inch iPhone X Plus, an iPhone X2 and a 6.1inch entry-level iPhone X.
These three phones are all expected to have a notched display while the 6.1inch iPhone X is expected use an LCD screen to keep costs down.
It’s been claimed the entry-level iPhone X could even cost less than the iPhone 8, which launched in the UK at a £699 price point.
And now latest leaks appear to back up the many rumors circulating around the iPhone 2018 line-up.
The ever-reliable 9to5Mac have reported on rumored dummy models of a 6.1inch iPhone 9 and a 6.5inch iPhone X Plus.
These dummy models were shared with 9to5Mac by tech journalist @shaimizrachi who has previously revealed pictures of accurate dummies for past iPhones.
A video showing the iPhone 2018 dummies showed the models housed in cases made by accessory maker Sketch.
This suggests case companies are already busy preparing accessories for the iPhone 2018 models ahead of its release in September.
The dummy models shown are the all-new 6.5inch iPhone X Plus as well as the 6.1inch entry level iPhone X.
Forbes reported that the dummy units align with schematics they obtained of the iPhone 2018 last month.
These schematics claimed the iPhone X Plus will boast a triple rear camera while the entry-level iPhone X will have a single camera.
The dummy units back up these rumored camera setups and give an insight into the design of the iPhone 2018 line-up.
The flagship dummy indicates Apple are looking to put the 6.5inch display of the iPhone X Plus into a handset no larger than the 5.5inch iPhone 8 Plus.
Elsewhere, the dummy units appear to show that Apple are not planning on adopting radical plans to drop the Lightning port this year.
The rumor mill has claimed that Apple may drop the Lightning port in favour of USB-C for their next line of iPhones.
Apple are rumored to be unveiling these three phones at their upcoming annual September event.
In addition to these three phones, Apple is also claimed to be working on an iPhone SE 2.
This is rumored to keep the same, small handset size of the original iPhone SE and also boast a notched display.
