Alleged Schematics and Renderings of 2018 iPhones Hit the Web


Another report coming from Korean media outlet The Bell, claims that this iPhone will be delayed by two months due to some technical difficulties and it's not ready for mass production. But you don't have to wait until then to see it.

The iPhone X is pricey at $1,000, and a lot of long-time iPhone fans simply can't afford it.

It's a Plus-sized iPhone that doesn't look all too different from the current 5.8-inch iPhone X. There's a notch at the top of the display and dual-lens camera on back. The expensive iPhones, on the other hand, meaning the successor to the iPhone X and a bigger version iPhone X Plus, are ready to go into production just in time, but that's only because they are using OLED panels.

Apple will launch three distinct iPhone X models this year, including two models worthy of the iPhone X name and a cheaper phone that some seem to refer to as the iPhone 9.

Nadal, Halep cruise into third round of French Open
And Muguruza impressed with her easy movement around the court in a 6-4, 6-3 victory over French wild-card entry Fiona Ferro. World number one Nadal had been two sets up but 0-3 down in the third when rain caused the tie to be suspended late Monday.


There's an nearly weird consensus on screen sizes as well, and until recently, two OLED iPhone X sequels were widely expected to be joined by a lower-cost LCD version. It could also offer Face ID, but is likely to miss out on a secondary rear-facing camera and 3D Touch.

The iPhone X2 Plus is said to have a 6.5-inch screen (or "could be 6.3-inches" because, as the report notes, it's hard to account for the slight curve along the screen edges).

There are no words on things like battery capacity yet, although a thicker 8.3mm profile could signal the presence of a larger cell under the hood of this unnamed 6.1-inch next-gen iPhone.

Interestingly enough, the new schematics don't beat around the bush and just call the 6.1-inch model the "iPhone 9", which may indeed be what it's called.
