If you have been wondering how does the eventual 6.1" LCD iPhone
stack up next to the also-eventual largest iPhone ever - the 6.4" X Plus
, or whatever Apple calls them - look no further than these two CAD-based dummies video from a trusted source whose leaked schematics, and the subsequent renders, have always been credible in the past.
The 6.1-incher doesn't shy too much away from the current iPhone 8
aesthetic, at least from the rear point of view, as the back of the iPhone 2018 is expected to be crafted out of glass again, and sport a single rear camera. The front, however, will undergo drastic screen-to-body ratio changes thanks to the shrunk bezels all around, and the notorious notch protrusion of the top bezel where the TrueDepth camera is going to be housed.
When it comes to the 6.4-incher, it's obviously a very big phone, notch or not, but the increased screen ratio will probably put it around the size of the current 8 Plus, and there are millions of folks used to carrying those dimensions already. Thus, the iPhone X 2018
successor is shaping up to be the only fairly compact handset in Apple's lineup this year, barring the iPhone 8
which will probably remain on sale for the nostalgia-oriented customers who just can't go without their beloved home button.
