We recently saw dummy models of the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone X Plus and 6.1-inch LCD iPhone 9 courtesy frequent tipster Benjamin Geskin. The leakster is now back with a fresh set of iPhones, this time with the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone X (2018) making an appearance. It hasn’t been spotted in dummy model leaks yet.
To no one’s surprise, the next-gen iPhone X (extreme left) looks exactly like its predecessor. It has the same dual-camera setup at the back and notch at the front. Apple isn’t planning on reinventing the wheel here, but it might just make the device cheaper this time around at $899 instead of $999.
The $999 price tag might pass on to the iPhone X Plus (extreme right). The bigger handset is identical to its smaller sibling on the outside. Things get a bit different on the inside though, as leaks have indicated that the device will grab dual-SIM support and an iPad-like landscape mode.
Budget iPhone 9 Rumors
Even the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone 9 (middle) might get hold of dual-SIM support. Widely known as the “budget” iPhone, Apple may sell it for $699. While it appears to resemble its OLED counterparts, the company has made some compromises.
For instance, the iPhone 9 above has a single rear camera. It’s also supposed to have aluminum frames in place of stainless steel. Plus, Apple might have sacrificed 3D Touch to keep its costs low. Still, the entry-level device is set to boast of premium features like Face ID and a minimal-bezel screen.
The leaked images provide a good look at what Apple is planning this year. No one has been able to figure out why the LCD iPhone 9 is bigger than the OLED iPhone X (2018). Perhaps the company knows its base iPhone will sell better if it has a size and cost advantage over the iPhone X.
