iPhone X Plus: More details emerge about plans for 2018 iPhones

Apple will launch a 6.5–inch iPhone X Plus, an updated iPhone X and a new, affordable LCD screen–sporting model with the same design as this year’s flagship model.

That’s the word from a new report on Business Insider, citing supply chain sources, backing up claims made by analyst Ming Chi Kuo last month.

All the phones will come with the same ‘notch’ as the recently launched iPhone X, and an identical all–screen look. However, internal components are likely to be tweaked in order to boost performance.

It has been reported that Apple will offer a larger 512GB version of both the updated iPhone X and new iPhone X Plus, as it looks to boost sales among premium users. The iPhone X Plus is also mooted to come with dual SIM support.

The most interesting development, though, centres on the LCD–packing iPhone X model. Analysts suggest this device could cost between $650 and $900, with Apple achieving the price cut by dropping the expensive OLED display and Force Touch tech.

That handset may also only come with a single, rather than dual, lens camera. The more affordable price may mean the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be discontinued.

Apple is not expected to update its iPhone X lineup until late 2018. But with rumours already swirling, expect to hear plenty more in the New Year.
