Apple next month is launching three new handsets based on the iPhone X’s design. The firm has repeatedly had its handsets leaked, and now a new report originating from Bloomberg has revealed more details.
Apple’s goal is reportedly not to sell gangbusters like previous releases, the firm hopes to raise the average pricing of iPhones and lure users to its higher-priced devices as well as entrench users in its value-added offerings like Apple Music, AirPods and its iWork suite of Office software.
The three iPhones have been detailed before and Bloomberg’s report doesn’t add much to the rumours that have been floating around.
The highest end iPhone will have a 6.5-inch display and come as one of the largest smartphones on the market. it will retain Apple’s iPhone X glass-backed design as well as its dual camera set up. Apple will be adapting its apps to support horizontal layouts just as its larger Plus sized iPhones have offered in the past. While the older iPhone X had a large screen than the Pluses of years past, in practice, Apple did not support those layouts om the smaller handset, likely due to its width. The 5.8-inch iPhone X will also see a successor, which will be built more like an S-series update.
The wholly new iPhone will still be iPhone X inspired by design, but it will come with an LCD screen and be aimed at replacing the iPhone * in the market. Apple will give this handset a 6.1-inch screen and swap stainless steel for aluminium,
All the new iPhones will ditch the home button and adopt Face ID and gesture controls. The branding of this phone isn’t totally clear yet. Apple has reportedly dubbing all these phones the iPhone X’s or even dropping the Plus Model.
Apple is reportedly launching these devices in September if previous patterns hold.
