Apple Prepping Huge 6.5-inch iPhone X, Cheaper Model

  • Apple's Short Interest Rises 7 Million Shares, but Does It Matter?

The latest smartphone is codenamed as D33 and according to a person familiar with the development says that at least some prototypes will include a screen resolution of 1242 x 2688 pixels. The planned trio will include the largest iPhone model ever, with a screen of around 6.5 inches; the update to the deluxe iPhone X; and a cheaper alternative, which includes some iPhone X features, according to Bloomberg.

Another model set to replace the existing iPhone X, known as D32 internally, will bring hardware updates, which are expected to be the A12 chip and also include other features such as Face ID.

Last year, Apple abandoned plans to announce a gold version of the iPhone X following production issues.

It's always been rumored that Apple is going to launch three new iPhones this fall, all with a design very similar to that of the iPhone X from a year ago. The iPhone X was certainly the first iPhone in years to launch without a gold color option. The big phone would join two other models - a standard-sized iPhone X upgrade and a low-priced, LCD iPhone.

For the cheaper LCD iPhone, the report stated that it would look similar to the iPhone X including the Face ID and shrunk bezels.

The screen that is showcased has a 6.5-inch display, which is only 1.4 inches smaller than the iPad Mini.

Expect to hear the official announcement of the new iPhones at an Apple launch event this summer. And to add more, both of them will be featuring stainless steel edges, which is quite similar to the iPhone X. Allowing apple to cater to markets with a demand for more budget devices. In some regions, they could also be available in a dual-SIM option.

That mega-iPhone would be even bigger than the current iPhone X's 5.8-inch display.

It is considering releasing a dual-SIM variant as well. With the eSIM tech, smartphones can connect to the cellular data networks without inserting a traditional SIM card. To keep costs down it will use an LED display instead of the brighter OLED technology. This is said to support new augmented reality features, enhanced Siri integration, health and fitness monitoring, and the use of Animojis in FaceTime. In 2013, the company debuted the iPhone 5c, which had a polycarbonate body and came in various colours.
