Apple will be holding the WWDC 2018 next week where it will be introducing new software upgrades iOS 12. But, the most exciting thing that we are waiting for Apple to do is to launch the new iPhones. This year we are looking for the iPhone XI or it may be called iPhone 11 we are not sure about the name yet. The tech giant launches the upgraded iPhone models in September of every year, and we are almost halfway to this year’s launch. In 2017, Apple launched iPhone 8 and iPhone X, the phone with notch display and bigger screen stole the show and set new trends among the smartphone manufacturers. As September is coming close the rumors and the news about the iPhone XI are coming out to the surface from various sources.
In order to let you know the maximum details about the Apple’s upcoming smartphone, we have gathered all the information available right now.
Apple may be coming with two iPhone XI models this year according to the latest rumors floating around. The leaks suggest that the company is working to launch two iPhones with OLED screen panels in 2018. The pair will include one display with a 5.85-inch display and other will have 6.46 display. Interestingly this rumors also came into notice even before the launch of iPhone X. Moreover, Ming-Ching Kuo, the KGI Securities specialist who specializes in spilling the beans for Apple also supported this news. In his report, he mentioned that Apple has two iPhone XI smartphones with OLED display in production that will be coming with a stainless steel.
Apart from Kuo, there is also another source that has confirmed that Apple will be coming two OLED display models. This will include a 5.8 and 6.5-inch display models for the launch of iPhone X1. In addition, the source also reveals that there will be also a third smartphone at the launch with a 6.1-inch screen having an LCD display and metal back.
However, Kuo has also shared his latest report over the iPhone XI in which revealed more specific details. He mentioned that there will be two models including a 5.8-inch size and a 6.5-inch size. He further breaks down the details by noting that the 6.5-inch smartphone will have the pixel density of 480-500 PPI were the 5.8 inch will possess the 458 PPI. Both the iPhone X1 models will have 4GB RAM with double lens rear camera and will come with the stainless steel frame, however, he mentioned that Apple won't be giving True Depth camera to these models. Alongside these two there will be a 6.1-inch model that will come with the metal back, following the iPhone 8 design and will cost cheaper.
Along with this, Kuo has also claimed that the battery of the 5.8-inch smartphone will be 10 percent more than the iPhone X. According to his report, the iPhone XI 6.5 inch model will have around 3300 or 3400 mAh battery. Another source claims that the iPhone X1 standard model will have the similar size to the iPhone X along with thicker body due to the larger rear camera and lens. On the other hand, the iPhone X1 Plus will be coming similar body size to iPhone 8 but bigger screen due to the less bezel on the body.
The iPhone X1 will surely to have the Face ID and the new chip form the Apple may be named as A12
The design of the iPhone X1 is expected to be similar to the iPhone X that will have a bigger screen with bezel-less and a notch. This is something that we strongly believe as Apple introduced the new design last year and the company does not change the design of iPhone every year.
We don't think we need any rumor or leaks for the iPhone XI launch from Apple as it likes to stick to the schedule. Apple launches the iPhone in September so we need to wait until September for the new iPhones. Precisely the launch dates move between the first and the second week of September and the phone finally arrives at the market for buyers in the last of September. However, the iPhone X took longer than usual to get to the shelves for the Apple fans in 2017. A rumor suggests that the Apple will begin the mass production of iPhone XI in the second quarter of 2018 to avoid any kind of delay.
There is information available for the Phone XI price right now, but we do believe it be too expensive. The iPhone XI will follow the iPhone X design and have some major upgrades that will make it even costlier than the last model. The iPhone X costs $999, we expect the price of the new iPhone will be higher than this. However, the company is planning to lower the price of the iPhone this year as it had already cut down the cost of its some components by 10 percent.
