iPhone X Plus leaked schematics reveal triple lens and more

iPhone X Plus Schematic

iPhone rumors are starting to pile up, with more and more evidence of a brand new 6.5-inch OLED iPhone X Plus, a budget LCD 6.1-inch iPhone, and a 5.8-inch OLED iPhone X sequel. The first two have now gotten their schematics leaked via Forbes and accessories maker Ghostek.

Based on the diagrams, it seems like the iPhone X Plus will enlist the help of 3 cameras to shoot photos. There have been rumors of a triple-lens iPhone in 2019, but not 2018. Some say the third hole is actually a flash unit, but Forbes disputes that. While the flash hasn’t been depicted in the images, it claims the module will be on the right side of the setup.

iPhone X Plus Size

The publication also points out that the flash is much smaller than the lenses in past iPhones. Whatever the case, it appears that the iPhone X Plus will be the only one to benefit from having 3 cameras. The standard iPhone X and affordable iPhone are expected to grab dual and single shooters, respectively.

Interestingly, the schematics indicate that the 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus is going to have a smaller footprint than the 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus. The former may measure 157.2 x 77.1mm and the latter measures 158.4 x 78.1mm, making it a tad bigger. The new smartphone is expected to be heavier though since it’s swapping steel for aluminum in the chassis.

6.1-inch iPhone Schematic

As for the low-cost iPhone, it might feature dimensions of 147.12 x 71.52mm, longer and wider than the first-gen iPhone X. This is to be expected given its 6.1-inch size. Apple is apparently going to ditch 3D Touch, employ a bigger notch, and saddle the device with first generation Face ID tech.

Only the OLED models may get blessed with second-gen Face ID. Like we mentioned before, the LCD iPhone could see a single camera strapped to its back. Apple is said to be slashing prices by $300 this time around, so this year’s crop should prove to be a bit more popular than last year’s.
