Apple's 2018 iPhone lineup receives EEC certification ahead of September launch

When the initial filing occurred, it was presumed that the model numbers were related to the rumored iPhone SE 2 – a release was largely expected to take place in May – but, since then, reports have revealed that the smartphone may actually never arrive. Because of this, it now seems more likely that the registered model numbers are, in fact, Apple’s new trio of devices that are set to make their debut in September. Despite a total of 11 models being registered, they appear to be separated into three main groups (A19XX, A209X, and A210X), indicating that they belong to three different devices. Moreover, while it’s unclear which numbers are associated with each model, the Silicon Valley-based giant’s previous history suggests that the cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone will utilize the A19XX codes, while the 2018 iPhone X and iPhone X Plus will make use of A209X and A210X respectively.
In terms of what is to be expected from the new lineup, Apple’s cheaper offering is set to make use of a new LCD panel supplied by both LG Display and JDI. Additionally, in the hope of attracting a new set of younger customers, previous reports have suggested that a wide range of vibrant color options will be offered. When it comes to the premium 2018 iPhone X series, however, a more traditional range of colors is to be expected alongside OLED displays.
At this point in time, the model number associations are simply speculation based on previous information. Nevertheless, with roughly two months to go before Apple unveils its fall 2018 hardware lineup, it shouldn’t be too long before even more details appear.

If they have a glass back. Then the colors won't matter, because people will HAVE to get a case for their phone anyway. Or take the risk of paying for the really high prices that Apple charges to repair their phones. Look at the glass back of the iPhone X costs over $500 to repair. That is just ridiculous.
