We have previously talked about the name for the upcoming iPhone X successor, an internal China Mobile slide reveals that the new iPhones could be named iPhone Xc, iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Plus. The slide also reveals that the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Plus will be available in dual-SIM variants, while iPhone Xc will be available only as a single-SIM device.
As per the leaked slides, iPhone Xc will have a 6.1″ LCD display with a price of 5,888 Yuan, iPhone Xs will have a 5.8″ OLED Display costing 7,388 Yuan, and iPhone Xs Plus will have a 6.5″ OLED Display for 8,388 Yuan. It seems like Apple is looking to resume the S and Plus series in their line-up, which was last seen in iPhone 7.
While Apple may have had massive success with iPhone X and iPhone 8, 2018’s models seem all geared up to beat these numbers. So far, we know that the new iPhones will use the A12 Processors which will leave the A11 in dust, by as much as 30%. It’s also believed that RAM would be boosted to 4GB on the premium variants, and as always, the camera will be improved to steal the show from competitors.
While a lot cannot be said about the innovative feature for this year’s iPhone, Apple has been successful in the past with 3D Touch on iPhone 6s, dual-cameras on iPhone 7 Plus, and Face ID and OLDE display on iPhone X. Apple has constantly set precedents with their innovations in the industry that it is influencing designs for the smartphone market as a whole. Almost every Android phone out there mimic’s iPhone X’s design now.
While iOS 12 is still in beta, it will likely be available as a GM build after the big keynote on 12 September. The new devices will ship with iOS 12 pre-installed, while the current devices will get iOS 12 within a few weeks of the event.
While Apple has made significant efforts into curbing news leaks and there is no doubt they have come a long way from the days of iPhone 4’s leak, it seems that Apple still cannot keep a lid on all the leaks. As the world waits with great anticipation on what lies ahead for the future of Apple’s smartphones, we are just as eager and can’t wait!
