Apple is one of those companies that makes people wait all year for its new products with bated breath. And the iPhones this year have been no exception as people have been speculating and theorizing about them based on the numerous leaks that have already made their way to the market.
But now the wait is over as Apple has officially sent out the invites for its most important event of the year. The iPhone launch that is held in the month of September. And this time around the event is going to be held on September 12, and Apple invites people to ‘Gather round’ for their latest round of unveiling.
Three iPhones: Two premium and one ‘affordable’
Thanks to a steady stream of leaks, rumors, and even videos, we already know that Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones this year. These will come in three screen sizes – 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.5-inch. The 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch models, expected to be called iPhone X (2018) and iPhone X Plus respectively, will both have OLED panels. On the other hand, the 6.1-inch version will have an LCD panel and called iPhone 9.
Hardware and software
It’s worth mentioning that all three upcoming iPhones will have the notch, along with bezel-less displays. This essentially means that none of the 2018 iPhones will have Touch ID, and the devices will instead rely on Face ID.
A video recently uploaded by YouTuber Michael Kukielka (DetroitBORG) showcased the dummies of the three iPhones, which have been claimed to be ‘fairly accurate’. These clearly show that the smallest and largest variants have a dual-camera system at the back, whereas the middle ‘affordable’ model features a single rear camera. The video even shows all three dummies having glass backs, which means they all could feature wireless charging.
WATCH: Apple iOS 12 features
Each year, Apple debuts a new chipset with its iPhones, and 2018 likely won’t be any different. This year’s iPhones are expected to be powered by Apple’s upcoming A12 (Bionic) SoC, which will feature advanced wireless features and faster LTE connectivity. The top-of-the-line iPhone X (Plus) could come with up to 4GB of RAM. It’s even been rumoured that the new iPhones will have Apple Pencil support and up to 512GB of internal storage.
Needless to say, all three iPhones will run iOS 12 out-of-the-box.
