Apple is set to launch three new iPhone models on September 12. This year’s iPhone lineup is expected to include a 5.8-inch iPhone Xs, a 6.1-inch LCD model called the iPhone 9 and a 6.5-inch iPhone Xs Max. The launch is just under a week away and new leaks keep shedding more light on these upcoming devices.

Ahead of the launch of these three new models, Walmart has already started stocking cases for two of Apple’s upcoming iPhones. Reddit user Meechflow95 managed to snap photos of cases made for the iPhone Xs Max and the iPhone 9. Meechflow95 also managed to compare them to the iPhone X. Since, the iPhone 9 is expected to measure a 6.1-inch LCD display and an iPhone Xs Max is said to pack a really large 6.5-inch display.

In comparison, the cases for iPhone 9 and iPhone Xs Max are obviously bigger than the 5.8-inch iPhone X. The iPhone Xs Max with its 6.5-inch display could be as big as the iPhone 8 Plus with big 5.5-inch display and huge bezels surrounding it. The cases also show that the iPhone 9 and the iPhone Xs Max will have same vertical cutouts for the rear camera setup.

However, the rumors suggest that only the iPhone Xs Max is getting dual cameras while iPhone 9 might have make do with a single camera. These case designs do not have anything much to offer beyond the fact that Apple is completely going in favor of the iPhone X design language this year.

All the three iPhone models launching this year are said to feature iPhone X-style notched display design and pack dedicated depth sensors to enable Face ID facial recognition system. The iPhone 9 is expected to feature a 6.1-inch LCD display while the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are tipped to sport a 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch Samsung-made OLED displays.
