Apple iPhone X could be followed up with the biggest iPhone EVER

Apple iPhone X could be followed up with the biggest iPhone EVER

This time around, the company is expected to release three new smartphones with the same design language as the iPhone X - the largest iPhone ever (iPhone X Plus ), a slightly cheaper model and one the same size as the current iPhone X. Later this year, Apple plans to make that design standard across all iPhone models.

In order to compete with more budget-friendly smartphones on the market, Apple will reportedly also introduce a cheaper iPhone later this year.

KGI also said 2018 will be the end for Touch ID and that all iPhone models will embrace Face ID.

This latter device, which could be the much rumoured iPhone X Plus, will allegedly have a massive 6.5inch screen.

But among many other teasing details, the kicker is that "at least some regions, Apple is considering offering a dual-SIM card option for the larger model".

The new iPhone may even sport dual SIM card ports so owners could use their phones overseas without having to change cards to connect to different cellular carriers.

With the global smartphone market set to stay flat or even shrink after meagre growth of one percent previous year, vendors are focusing on features created to encourage consumers to ditch their old phones earlier than they would have previously.

The Cupertino tech conglomerate is also planning to bring an low-cost version of Apple iPhone X too. LG was rumored to be one of Apple's suppliers of OLED panels for their next iPhones.

"That market has many single-device consumers, and they love big phones".

The big iPhone X with a 6.5-inch display will sport a resolution of 2688×1242 pixels. The company is also reported to now develop its iOS 12 which to the company, will bring "upgraded augmented reality capabilities, deeper integration of the Siri digital assistant, digital health monitoring and the ability to use Animojis in FaceTime". Though it will be an affordable device, it will still feature full-screen display like iPhone X along with the Face ID scanner.

Apple will likely announce all its 2018 phones in September. Images displayed on the big screen could be as sharp as that of iPhone X. The same expensive OLED technology is still considered to be used. The high-end smartphone will use next-gen A12 processors and include stainless steel edges.
