Check out the Biggest Features of Apple Promised on the Three New iPhones

This past weekend, a user on a Chinese Apple fan forum called MacX posted two photos that may very well be our first look at components from Apple's upcoming iPhone X Plus.

The three iPhones expected later on in the year include a 6.5-inch OLED phablet (iPhone X Plus), an update to the iPhone X which will have the same dimensions as the current model and a new cheaper handset with a 6.1-inch display which will replace the current 4.7-inch model.

Rumors are mounting that Apple will release a trio of new iPhones later this year, including a Plus-sized iPhone X successor that may have a larger display than the recently revealed, 6.2-inched Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. Regardless, this fall we'll likely see three iPhones that all feature the edge-to-edge design that made the iPhone X so striking when it debuted.

Like the iPhone X, the larger model will include a Face ID scanner that unlocks the device and enables payments. The brand may come out of its comfort zone for once as they plan to launch their phones with support for dual SIM cards in 2018. Apple only sells the premium flagship in Silver and Space Gray, while the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus both have Gold in addition to the other two colors.

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. This should keep costs down, making the device more appealing to many customers.

The Cupertino-based company earlier this month forecast disappointing revenue of US$60 billion to US$62 billion for its fiscal second quarter ending in March, with a number of media reports pointing to slack demand for iPhone X after unit sales failed to meet expectations in the run-up to Christmas.

People familiar with the matter said the company is now engaged in production tests with iPhone suppliers, and the new models will reach the market this fall.

KGI also said 2018 will be the end for Touch ID and that all iPhone models will embrace Face ID. They may also use the eSIM technology to get rid of physical SIM cards permanently but all these things can not be considered immediately and it might take some time for the rumors to be clarified through verified sources. The dimensions are expected to be similar to iPhone 8 Plus but an inch larger when measured diagonally.

Apple has tried selling cheaper phones in the past with poor results.

The third phone in Apple's lineup will be geared towards providing a smartphone for everyone who may not want to spend $1,000+ on a smartphone.
