New report claims Apple will launch iPhone X Plus this year

  • Apple's Short Interest Rises 7 Million Shares, but Does It Matter?

Said to be code-named D33, the largest device will apparently pack a almost 6.5-inch screen into a body "about the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus", likely sporting a similar overall resolution of 2688 by 1242. The new low-priced iPhone model will feature bezel-less display as the iPhone X and it will also feature Face ID instead of a traditional TouchID fingerprint scanner.

The body will be around the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus, the report says, but the edge-to-edge design will enable the larger display size without bolstering the physical footprint.

According to a new report, three new iPhones will launch in 2018, all derived from the design and features of the iPhone X.

Dapchi School Attack: A national disaster, says President Buhari
When the regional government in Yobe said on Wednesday that the girls had been rescued, local residents celebrated in the streets. Government retracts earlier statement that some of the girls had been rescued after Boko Haram attacked their school.

The second iPhone X will be an updated version of the current model which will sit between the largest iPhone and the more affordable iPhone X.

The iPhone X, that debuted past year after much build-up, didn't see good sales reportedly due to its price of $1,000.

All three of Apple's new phones will have an updated operating system, likely called iOS 12, according to Bloomberg. In the fourth quarter of 2017, the firm posted 77.3 million iPhones sold, falling short of the consensus estimate for 80.2 million units.

Apple will use an LCD screen on the budget-friendly phone for cost-cutting, but it will house aluminium edges and glass back to deliver a premium look. Also, all the three iPhones will feature a TrueDepth camera for Face ID.

The two may also be offered in a gold color option. The company is also reported to now develop its iOS 12 which to the company, will bring "upgraded augmented reality capabilities, deeper integration of the Siri digital assistant, digital health monitoring and the ability to use Animojis in FaceTime". It also won't use a stainless steel frame and opt for aluminum. The iPhone X Plus might also have a dual-SIM option.
