The latest leak gives us our first sneak peek at two of them. The 6.5-inch model will reportedly be called the iPhone XS Max, as Apple drops the "Plus" moniker from the devices. When compared to 2017, this year we've seen virtually zero component or factory leaks for the iPhone, as Apple's security measures to prevent these are working out.
The device is presumed to boast the same 5.8-inch OLED display present in the company's current flagship. While it will feature an iPhone X-like design, its specs are much closer to the iPhone 7 and 8. The iPhone XS will be priced starting at $899 (approx Rs 64,500) while the larger variant is expected to get the heftiest price tag of $999 (Rs 71,700). Historically, the "S" versions have focused on under-the-hood improvements with little external changes.
What is dubbed as the "iPhone 9" will apparently have only one 12 MP camera, its Wi-fi tech will be slower, its battery smaller and it will have an aluminum frame. Going with the trend, there could be a separate unannounced event to be scheduled for October this year where MacBook 2018 editions can be revealed.
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. Leveraging the faster processor, deeper Siri integration, and new version of iOS, called out by Bloomberg, the iPhone XS aims to be a powerhouse device for getting work done on the go.
Just last week a website leaked an image showing off the two iPhone XS models. Along with the launch of the iPhone XS, a revamped iPhone 8 is set to be launched too. These prices are for the base variant with 64GB storage, and with import duties and other taxes, price in India could shoot further. Macerkopf said two different sources quoted the same prices. Another possibility regarding iPad 2018 model is that it will feature FaceID just like iPhone X. There might also a third iPhone with LCD Panel and dual-SIM support. There appear to be no photos of any case for the iPhone Xs, the expected successor to last year's iPhone X. The uploader also mentions that none of the above cases are up for sale yet.
All three models will drop the home button and, therefore, the TouchID scanning technology. This mode makes use of iPhone X's dual-camera setup in order to take wonderful pictures that can showcase the depth of the landscape.
It looks like we are getting three phones this year, a 5.8 inches standard OLED, the Plus size 6.5 inches and a 6.1 inches SE replacement model.
