A new report from Bloomberg says that three new iPhones should land this year, led by a 6.5-inch iPhone with an OLED display.
Ming Chi-Kuo predicted three new iPhones for 2018 back in November.
The report says that the larger iPhone will have similar dimensions to the iPhone 8 Plus. It could sport a resolution of 1242 x 2688. Apple may also offer a dual-SIM model in some areas:
With a screen close to 6.5 inches, Apple’s big new handset will be one of the largest mainstream smartphones on the market. While the body of the phone will be about the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus, the screen will be about an inch larger thanks to the edge-to-edge design used in the iPhone X.
Apple is also planning a new version of the current iPhone X model. Both models will sport an A12 processor.
A familiar color may also make its way to both handsets:
Apple is considering a gold color option for the update to the iPhone X and the larger model. The company tried to develop gold for the current X handset, but abandoned it because of production problems. All new iPhones since the 5s came in gold, including the iPhone 8. The gold option is especially appealing to consumers in Asia and may help boost sales in the region. Still, Apple may ultimately decide not to proceed with the color.
While those two models will remain at the top end of the iPhone line, Apple will also apparently be unveiling a new model with a 6.1-inch LCD screen. While the body of that model will be similar to the iPhone 8 line, it will offer an edge-to-edge screen and Face ID.
