- The largest of three new iPhones anticipated to launch this fall, the 6.5-inch “iPhone X Plus” is expected to feature an iPhone X design with edge-to-edge display and Face ID technology.
- While its height and width are said to share similarities with iPhone 8 Plus, the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone could be 0.2mm thicker than the existing handset to accommodate a vertically stacked rear-facing camera array.
- The handset’s chassis is rumored to be identical to that of the current iPhone X, but with a slightly larger rear camera lens to make way for a bigger camera sensor or sensors.
- Both the 5.8- and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones are rumored to feature enhanced Face ID authentication with support for multi-position recognition. Currently, users authenticating with Face ID must hold the phone vertically in front of their face, but that could change with iOS 12.
Finally, today’s report reaffirms rumors that a low-end iPhone model will rely on LCD technology. Of note, sources claim the device’s panel might come in at 6 inches, not 6.1 inches as previously thought.
