So, it begins. Rumors have been buzzing about the 2018 Apple iPhone lineup that are expected to come with a couple of new features.
First things first, Apple currently plans to reveal three new iPhones in early September for release later that month. Two of the new phones are purported to be successors to the iPhone X. One will sport the same 5.8 inch OLED display like the current iPhone X, while the other will be a plus-sized version with a 6.5 inch OLED display. The third newest iPhone will reportedly be a more affordable version of its two “siblings,” if you will. This third phone will feature a 6.1 inch LCD display. Before you tech heads groan at the idea of a LCD display, rumors state that the phone will likely have Full Active LCD, which makes it an improved version of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. That’s something, right?
The three phones will also supposedly have the same edge-to-edge screen as the iPhone X. Sorry to you folks who aren’t into that design. The third phone that is not a direct successor to the X may also lack 3D Touch functionality, a feature that has been in iPhones since the iPhone 6s. The reason for this is to offset the cost of the third new iPhone, which will likely be a hefty price without 3D Touch. Is it such a total loss? Let us know!
Lastly, these new phones are all rumored to support Face ID, which was previously only featured in the iPhone X. Face ID is expected to be featured across all Apple devices in the near future.
So, what do you all think about the speculation surrounding the new iPhones coming this year? And if you’re reading this in a few months from now, tell us what you think about the phone. Was it worth the upgrade? Let us know in the comments!
