An iPhone (2018), XS, and XS Plus may be in the wings for September release

Apple may call its most affordable handset edition this year simply the iPhone 2018, according to one uncorroborated claim of an accessory merchant that sometimes tips the designs of upcoming phones. Тhe iPhone X successor, on the other hand, maybe dubbed XS, as is Apple's habit for the "tock" cycle handsets. Last but not least, the expected 6.5" iPhone with the largest iPhone screen ever would then logically be the XS Plus, they say. Dummies of the two new for Apple screen diagonals are in the video above for your viewing pleasure.

To recap - a 5.8" iPhone XS, 6.1" LCD iPhone 2018,  and 6.5" iPhone XS Plus may be in the cards for next month, all running on a new 7nm A12 chipset with Gigabit LTE connectivity. The cheapest model may have a dual SIM version for China, while the most expensive one may also come with a dual-SIM tray, for, umm, anyone else who can afford it. All should have Face ID modules in their notches at the front and improved main camera sensors. 

What else will be in store remains to be seen, but the trio may force the mother of all upgrade waves in Apple's history, just short of the 6 Plus introduction. Apple will finally have a screen size for every taste, and price brackets to match, so we can't wait to hear more about the newcomers.
