Earlier, renders of the 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus and that of the 6.1-inch budget iPhone were spotted.

Apple is expected to launch its new iPhones around September this year. Also, there's a single camera lens on the back, suggesting that it could be the cheapest of all the new iPhones. This is now in debate across the media, with many stating that the third slot is simply for the flash, however this contrasts previous schematics where the flash is distinctly smaller than the lenses themselves. It will likely hang out on the side of the triple camera module.

Apple's triple lens setup is now unknown, but it would make sense to copy Huawei's approach of a monochrome camera aiding the primary and telephoto modules.

Despite Huawei beating Apple to the punch with its P20, the headline feature on the iPhone X Plus is its triple lens camera on the rear.


Recent reports have said that claims created by TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, saying that all three latest iPhones will export in September 2018. This is the model that will carry a 6.5-inch edge-to-edge OLED display, powered by a 7nm A12 SoC. The premium 5.8-inch OLED model and 6.5-inch OLED iPhone X Plus are expected to cost around $900 and $1,000, respectively.

Gordon Kelly, a contributing writer at Forbes who previously leaked the final design of Samsung's Galaxy S9 smartphone before it was released, says he obtained schematics for both the upcoming "budget iPhone X" with a 6.1-inch display, and the larger iPhone X Plus with a giant 6.5-inch panel. That's more compact than the current iPhone 8 Plus' 158.4 x 78.1mm.

However, the XI Plus is said to have a steel chassis, rather than an aluminum one, likely making it heavier than the 202g iPhone 8 Plus.

Another important detail provided by this leak on iPhone X Plus is that the upcoming Apple flagship will measure 156.9 x 76.9 mm. Everyone was excited this year to hear some updates regarding the next iPhone at WWDC 2018 but the conference ended with no major announcements.
