Apple iPhone X Plus and 'budget' iPhone X design and size leak in schematics - GSMArena.com news

Sketchy claim of triple-lens 2018 iPhone schematic likely based on misunderstanding

The latest iPhone, which is being dubbed as X Plus, will have a 6.5-inch 19:9 OLED screen and measuring 157.2 x 77.1mm body that is more compact than the current iPhone 8 Plus' 158.4 x 78.1mm.

First things first, if you haven't been following the story, Apple is rumored to be launching three new iPhone models this year - a successor to the iPhone X, a bigger model dubbed iPhone X plus and a budget iPhone which will most likely be a successor to the iPhone SE. According to the schematics, it could introduce the bezel-less design with a notch on top.

The publication also points out that the flash is much smaller than the lenses in past iPhones. The site obtained the schematics from accessory maker Ghostek, who also leaked them the design of the Samsung Galaxy S9 in December. The schematic also shows us the phone will measure 147.12 x 71.52 mm (5.79 x 2.81 inches), making it slightly longer and wider than the current iPhone X model, which measures 143.6 x 70.9 mm (5.65 x 2.79 inches). It'll feature the iPhone X's Face ID 1.0 and a single-sensor camera. Whatever the case, it appears that the iPhone X Plus will be the only one to benefit from having 3 cameras. Today, Forbes has written an article in which revealed the Schematics of upcoming Apple iPhone X Plus with triple rear cameras along with Budget iPhone X.

The claim is that Apple will release a budget iPhone X, possibly simply called iPhone. You'll see on iPhone X schematics, the flash is substantially smaller than the cameras.

After the successful WWDC keynote, the next event from Apple would be the launch of next-gen iPhones sometime in the coming September, this year. On the other hand, the second generation iPhone X is said to retain the dual rear camera setup as the company has reserved the triple camera for the iPhone X Plus.

Another factor that deems the 6.1-inch iPhone "budget" is the fact that it will lose 3D Touch - we don't expect many tears to be shed over this. There have been rumors of a triple-lens iPhone in 2019, but not 2018.
