Despite the media hype surrounding the iPhone X, Apple saw a disappointing debut for its iPhone sales last quarter.
A few reports have claimed that the company wants to roll out a plus-sized version of the iPhone X, but now, a new report from the very-credible Mark Gurman at Bloomberg seems to confirm the speculation.
The report from The Mobile Indian also indicates that the biggest iPhone device which Apple is now working on will carry a mammoth display of a 6.5-inch size model.
The first image, which can be seen above, supposedly shows the display digitizer from Apple's upcoming 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus. We should also expect the new A12 processors to be featured in, and there's a new rumour that Apple could integrate a dual SIM slot but take it with a grain of salt.
The new lower-cost model, like iPhone X, will include bezel-less front screens and Face ID, but will not come with OLED screens, according to Bloomberg. As far as a person familiar with the development's report is concerned, at least some prototypes will be included with a screen resolution of 1242 x 2688 pixels. Allowing apple to cater to markets with a demand for more budget devices. The display will reportedly be the same OLED technology used on the current iPhone X.
Apple is still plotting three smartphone for this autumn, the report claimed, with an updated and more affordable versions of the iPhone X also on deck.
However, dual-SIM smartphones are certainly popular in Asia and also with road warriors who regularly flit between their home territory and different Asian countries. Apple has not made a final decision and might opt for E-SIM technology instead.
Would a 6.5-inch iPhone bring you back to Apple smartphones? A smaller, iPhone X-like device could change that, making higher-end features such as Face ID just a bit more accessible in 2018 - even if it means saying au revoir to TouchID. Consumers quickly discovered that for a mere $100 more they could buy a 5s, which had an aluminum body, a slow-motion video camera and a fingerprint scanner.
