According to the portal, the iPhone 2018 model would have at least two variants - iPhone XS and iPhone XC. We'll find out properly (along with a showcase of whatever the inevitable gimmicky thing is) on September 12th at Apple's big announcement event.
Two of them - the smallest and biggest - will have OLED screens; OLED screens have been in smartphones for some years now, though Apple only chose to use it for the first time last year on the iPhone X. It is expected that the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone will be called iPhone XS Plus and the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone will be called iPhone XS. The iPhone Xs variants are listed in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB models, while the "iPhone 9" is apparently available only in 64 and 256GB versions. Today, Bloomberg is reporting that the cheaper 6.1-inch LCD iPhone could be called the iPhone Xr - with the "r" likely standing for "regular". But if you thought the names "iPhone XS" and "iPhone XS Max" were already cringe-worthy, the colorful "iPhone Xc" might have something to upset hopefuls more than just its name.
Apart from the color options, we can also see that the LCD iPhone will feature an aluminum frame instead of stainless steel which is found on the high-end iPhone X. Other details suggest the device will house a single lens camera set up at the back.
According to reports, Apple will also launch a cheaper version of the iPhone X design, unifying the entire 2018 iPhone line with the notched screen and Face ID facial recognition, dropping the Touch ID fingerprint scanner and home button. This is not the Chinese cost of the iPhone 8 Plus.
