iPhone X Plus to be the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus, Say Sources

It’s been 10 years since Apple first launched a new iPhone. Apple iPhone has changed so much since then, providing users with more innovative features and changes. The year of 2014 marked the first time we were seeing Apple debut a 5.5 inch iPhone, the biggest iPhone ever. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus quickly broke Apple’s sales record with 10 million units sold in their first three days of availability.

Last year, Apple launched the iPhone X, a special iPhone to celebrate its 10th birthday. iPhone X is a great phone with a curved OLED display, Face ID, much-improved hardware and amazing dual camera setup. However, iPhone X sales have been below Apple’s expectations, which gives the company a driving reason to replace it.

Rumors regarding the next generation iPhone have been floating around for months. Sources claim that Apple will release three new iPhones in September, including a new 6.5 inch iPhone and a cheaper iPhone. A 6.5-inch model will replace the current iPhone X on the market. That means that the device will come with premium features and components.

Sources say that Apple is speeding up production for its iPhone X Plus to meet the huge demand. Last year, Apple had to deal with supply issues that forced the company to push back the release date of the X to November. Apple is looking for more suppliers worldwide to boost production. Samsung Display is now offering hundreds of millions of OLED panels for iPhone models.

According to the latest sources, the iPhone X Plus will have the same size as the current iPhone 8 Plus. However, the X Plus will sport a bigger 6.5-inch screen, while the iPhone 8 Plus features a 5.5-inch display panel.

Sources also say that the 6.5 inch iPhone will be thicker than the 8 Plus, but all devices come with small bezels. Rumors say that Apple will unveil a 6.1 inch iPhone this year. The device is said to use an LCD display and target the mid-range smartphone segment.

In terms of features, all iPhone models this year will support wireless charging and much-improved camera. A dual-camera setup will be present on a 6.5-inch model but absent on a 6.1-inch device.
