If you don’t like the iPhone X styling, you might want to look away now.
Leaked images of Apple’s three new iPhones for 2018 show a trio of handsets that all share one thing in common – iPhone X styling.
That’s right: no home button, hardly any bezels, and plenty of notch action.
According to the leaker, one Ben Gaskin, the leak shows the front panels from Apple’s new iPhone base model (the iPhone 8 replacement), the iPhone XI (iPhone X replacement), and the iPhone X Plus.
iPhone X 2018 Display – OLED vs LCD
One of the units, likely the base model, WILL NOT feature OLED.
Nope, that one will rock an LCD display apparently. The reason? Simple: keeping costs down.
Apple knows it cannot sell three $1000 phones – that’d alienate everybody.
So, what’s likely to happen is this: the base model will be slightly more expensive than the iPhone 8, while the iPhone XI will sell for the same price as the iPhone X, and the iPhone X Plus model will be EVEN more…
How much more? A few hundred bucks most likely – meaning anywhere from $1300 to $1500.
iPhone X 2018 Display Sizes
- iPhone X Base Model: 5.8in
- iPhone XI: 6.1in
- iPhone X Plus: 6.5in
The iPhone XI and iPhone X Plus, if the leaked images are legit, would make them the largest phones Apple has ever released.
Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, a man with a stellar track record when it comes to all things Apple, has said that Apple release larger models in 2018, as well as a cheaper version of the iPhone X.
That’ll be the LCD model pictured above.
All three iPhones will get a launch in and around September.
What About THAT iPhone USB Type-C Rumour?
Well, it just got A LOT juicier. According to Japanese Apple blog, Macotakara, USB Type-C is indeed coming to Apple’s iPhones in 2018 – and it will be exclusive to the 2018 models.
The handsets will come with an 18W USB Type-C to Lightning connector in the box. And it WILL be backward compatible, meaning you can use it with existing iPhones like the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus.
Apple’s only making enough for the iPhone X 2018 handsets though, so anyone wanting one is well… out of luck until 2019.
Why? No one knows. But it’s likely down to the fact that Apple kinda wants you to buy a NEW phone rather than use your old one.
