Apple will reportedly be introducing three new iPhone models in September this year, and all of them are expected to feature iPhone X like edge-to-edge display along with a notch on top. Out of the three models, one will be an affordable offering with 6.1-inch LCD display, whereas the other two are expected to feature OLED displays.

Now, renders of the alleged cheaper iPhone have surfaced online, thanks to our sister site BGR.com, who acquired the renders from casemaker Ghostek. The device looks just like the iPhone X with an edge-to-edge display, and notch that houses the front camera along with the required sensors for Face ID.

“The renders are believed to be based on detailed files obtained from the factory that builds these smartphones, which would obviously explain why they’re so accurate. This particular render has been confirmed as accurate by an additional source who is aware of Apple’s plans,” BGR claims.

To ensure an affordable price tag, Apple will reportedly ditch four features on the cheaper iPhone with 6.1-inch display. As mentioned, it will come with an LCD panel instead of OLED, which will save some cost. Further, Apple may also drop 3D Touch support to cut costs further.

The iPhone X comes with 4GB of RAM to ensure smooth functioning, and the cheaper alternative may come with only 3GB RAM. And lastly, as we can see in the renders, the smartphone will only feature a single camera at the back, whereas the other two variants are expected to come with dual cameras at the back. We’d advise taking this information with a pinch of salt till Apple doesn’t officially announce the new iPhones.
