Now that we are in 2018, rumors about the next iPhone have begun to erupt for people around the world are already ready for the next Apple product release.
There were three iPhones that arrived last year, in the form of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X, and now we also have Red (Product) editions of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. It’s a new year, so it’s definitely another time to think about the new iPhone that’ll come in the future.
Last time, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus followed the traditional iPhone design, giving an insight for could’ve been the “S” versions of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, all this while the iPhone X was shaking things up in the market.
With this, it’s totally possible that we will see an iPhone 9 and 9 Plus, as well as a successor of the iPhone X called iPhone XI or iPhone X2? And could we have an iPhone SE2 this year as a bonus?
There are also rumors that Apple could launch a golden version of the iPhone X this year, which could be bigger, like a plus version of the iPhone X.
New Apple iPhone 11: Release date
We could see a successor to the iPhone SE, the smallest iPhone, in the spring of 2018, but we will not see the iPhone 9 or the successor of the iPhone X until September 2018.
Traditionally, Apple has held the September events in the first weeks of the month and, usually, on Tuesday, with advance orders of devices announcing from Friday of the same week.
The iPhone X was an exception to this model, with pre-orders that did not start for six weeks later at the end of October.
However, it will take a few months before the rumors appear, and it is likely that nothing goes to the surface until August 2018 as soon as possible.
Possible next iPhone name, X1 or X2? Would there also be an iPhone X Plus?
How will Apple call its iPhone 2018 models? Well, this has gotta be one of the main questions that have been bugging everyone ever since after knowing about the progressive existence of the iPhone X.
We could see an iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus, or we could see Apple omit the “9” in total. There was a prediction that we will see a larger iPhone X appear with a 6.5-inch OLED screen, along with another 5.8-inch OLED model and a separate 6.1-inch device with an LCD screen.
Perhaps this means that the new iPhones will continue predominantly with the name “X”, which will result in iPhone XI or iPhone X2 and iPhone X Plus (in gold?)
For OLED models, with the standard name of iPhone 9 reserved for the model LCD. As we said, he is a stranger right now.
The XI brand would make a lot of sense because it would be pronounced iPhone 11, just like the iPhone X is called iPhone 10.
Some reports have claimed that the company wants to launch an extra version of the iPhone X, but now a new report by the very credible Mark Gurman on Bloomberg seems to confirm the speculation. According to Gurman, Apple will launch three new iPhones this September and all three will use Face ID for authentication.
The new range will consist of an updated iPhone X, a larger version of the updated iPhone X and a cheaper iPhone that combines the thin trunks of the iPhone X with the LCD screen of the old iPhone, perhaps the iPhone 9.
The new Apple iPhone 2018: Design
Apple has made some important changes to the iPhone design with the iPhone X. It has moved away from what the iPhone has defined in the last decade by removing the TouchID start button on the front and replacing it with a notch at the top of the screen, housing a new technology called FaceID.
However, the iPhone X is not for everyone, and many do not like change, which is probably one of the reasons why the company has chosen to launch the more traditional iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models by its side. However, do not rely on the same strategy for the next year.
By September 2018, those who initially had not been sold in the iPhone X design would have had 12 months to get used to it and since Tim Cook said the iPhone X sets the stage for iPhone’s next 10 years, we would not. You will be surprised to see that all 2018 models present the new design.
Apple switched to the OLED with the iPhone X, so it’s definitely no surprise that the company would continue to offer OLED options this year.
According to Ming Chi-Kuo, there will be a 6.5-inch OLED model, a 5.8-inch OLED model, and a 6.1-inch LCD model. The analyst shared an infographic that suggests that the 6.1-inch LCD will offer a clutter between the current iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus despite the larger screen, which would be possible if it adopted the aspect ratio 18: 9 offered by the iPhone. iPhone X.
Kuo also predicted that the 6.5-inch model would offer a pixel density of 480 to 500ppi, the 5.8-inch model would offer 458ppi, which is the same as the current iPhone X, and the model from 6.1 inches would have between 320 and 330 pixels per inch.
However, for now, they are all predictions and assumptions, so if everything is about pixels, do not be discouraged again. In addition to pixels and dimensions, we expect to see a continuation of the 3D Touch on all models, the wide range of P3 colors and Apple’s True Tone technology in some, if not all, of the 2018 models.
Apple’s iPhone X features a dual rear camera, just like the iPhone 8, so we would not be surprised to see double back cameras on all iPhone 2018 models.
It could be that the predicted 6.1-inch LCD model has a unique rear camera, like the standard iPhone 8, but as suggested, this 6.1-inch model offers a similar footprint to the iPhone 8 Plus, presumably a dual camera adjustment.
