Apple Plans Lower-Priced Model Later This Year

The iPhone X, on the other hand, is a radical redesign with edge-to-edge display and improved facial recognition technology.

Though the potential price of the iPhone X Plus has not been detailed by Bloomberg, there is a possibility that it might be costlier than the $999-priced iPhone X.

Apple's widely reported plan to create separate larger, faster, and cheaper versions of the iPhone X became clearer today thanks to a report from Bloomberg. Yesterday sources came out to reveal Apple's plans for a trio of iPhones in 2018, one of which will be Apple's biggest ever with a 6.5-inch OLED display. Samsung traditionally announces new Note series devices in the fall, so it is possible it might launch a larger screen around the same time Apple's new models hit the market.

Like the iPhone X, the larger model will include a Face ID scanner that unlocks the device and enables payments. We're big fans of the iPhone X too here at BGR, but truth be told, we wish the screen was a little larger. Still, the larger phone could cannibalize iPad sales, a category that recently started growing again.

Apple Reportedly Planning 3 New iPhones in 2018

The new lineup is created to meet the demands of all kinds of iPhone users from those that love the complex features of phablets to those looking for an iPhone that is less costly than the iPhone X.

Apple's upcoming smartphone is expected to sport a 6.5-inch OLED display. According to Gurman, Apple will release three new iPhones this September, and all three will use Face ID for authentication. A gold color option is also planned for both phones, having been left out of the iPhone X due to production issues. The cheaper model will feature an aluminium design and a glass back. The 6.1-inch model might also lack features such as 3D Touch and dual cameras.

The new phones will likely arrive running an updated operating system. iOS 12, codenamed Peace, is expected to deliver additional augmented reality features, deeper Siri integration, digital health monitoring and the ability to utilize Animojis during FaceTime calls. We should also expect the new A12 processors to be featured in, and there's a new rumour that Apple could integrate a dual SIM slot but take it with a grain of salt.
