Apple Might Be Joining The 'Phablet' Race With A Giant iPhone X

The leaks follows on from earlier suggestions from well-connected analysts at KGI that Apple will release a 6.1-inch iPhone this year.

Apple launched the 10th anniversary iPhone X at its September event past year, billing it as the 'future of the smartphone'.

Like the iPhone X, the larger model will include a Face ID scanner that unlocks the device and enables payments.

The new iPhone may even sport dual SIM card ports so owners could use their phones overseas without having to change cards to connect to different cellular carriers. With the new plans, Apple plans to lure back iPhone users with a lineup that offers a model for every taste. However, Apple needs to be a little more careful with the pricing strategy they adopt for the cheaper variants.

Scotland recycled possession and, off the back of a ruck, Russell's cut-out ball sent left wing Maitland in at the corner. Nothing sums up his game though, quite like this simply sumptuous pass to Huw Jones that set-up Scotland's second-try.

The big iPhone X with a 6.5-inch display will sport a resolution of 2688×1242 pixels. Bloomberg notes the device will probably see software tweaks similar to those made to the current iPhone Plus models whereas the 5.8-inch model won't. This is just an initial stage and we never know if this will be just the sayings from Apple and might never take place in reality in coming days. iPhone X was launched in 2017 past year but didn't go well initially due to number mass production problems. Alongside an updated iPhone X (which could come in gold), the Cupertino-based company is also going to launch a cheaper, more-affordable iPhone, as well as a 6.5-inch behemoth. Looks like now Apple will also include that color option in upcoming iPhones. A dual-SIM capability would provide a compromise. They may also use the eSIM technology to get rid of physical SIM cards permanently but all these things can not be considered immediately and it might take some time for the rumors to be clarified through verified sources.

Like the iPhone X, all three iPhones will have Face ID, curved edge displays and of course, the top front notch that got everyone talking.

"It's good that they're rounding out the product line" with a less expensive phone, Munster says. It also won't use a stainless steel frame and opt for aluminum.

The larger iPhone is said to have a display close to 6.5-inches in size. In 2013, the company debuted the iPhone 5c, which had a polycarbonate body and came in various colors. This design will allegedly work because of the edge-to-edge design being used.
