The battle for smartphone market share in India as well as worldwide is getting fierce. The first half of 2018 is almost coming to an end and we’ve already witnessed launch of several power-packed flagships from the likes of Samsung, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Oppo, Vivo etc. The remaining second half of 2018 is going to be equally exciting the most awaited flagships from Apple will be unveiled in September 2018. And, the first leaked renders of the upcoming devices are already out, courtesy popular tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer aka @OnLeaks.

Apple is rumored to launch three new devices this year- an iPhone SE2, 6.1-inch LCD iPhone and a larger 6.5-inch model dubbed as the iPhone X Plus. Steve has leaked the CADs of the 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch iPhones to be launched via MySmartPrice.

Let’s have a look at CADs along with the 360-degree videos before we talk more about the devices.

Talking about the common features and specifications, both the phones will come with aluminum frame (similar to iPhone 8 and 8 Plus) along with glass back and will support wireless charging. They will be powered by Apple’s latest A12 chip. The 3.5mm headphone jack will be missing, so you’ll need to go through the hassles of carrying an extra accessory in case you wish to use the headphones with 3.5mm jack. The volume rocker will be placed on the left side, whereas the power/Siri button will be on the right along with the SIM card slot and mute/alert slider.

The 6.1-inch iPhone will sport an LCD screen with top display notch for Face ID and will feature single rear camera in order to cut the cost as its going to be supposed to be an affordable iPhone. Based on the report by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the 6.1-inch iPhone will feature 3GB RAM and will lack 3D touch. It could also be slightly thicker at 8.3mm instead of 7.7mm thickness of iPhone X. As per Kuo, the expected price of the device is between $700 to $800.

The larger 8.5-inch iPhone X Plus could sport bezel-less screen with OLED panel and top display notch hosting the earpiece, front-facing, camera and Face ID related sensors. There won’t be a fingerprint scanner, so you’ll have to reply on 3D technology based FaceID which is quite secured as compared to 2D technology-based Face Unlock feature of most Android phones. The rear will host a vertically stacked dual camera setup with LED flash. The dimensions of the device will be 157.5×77.4×7.7mm (9.1mm including the camera bump).

These leaks are to be taken with a pinch of salt, but Steve has a proven track record of leaking out renders of yet-to-be launched smartphones. So, we believe the upcoming iPhones 2018 will more or less look like as seen in the above CADs. We are still three months away from the official launch and you can expect more leaked renders as well as information in the coming months. Stay tuned till then!
