IPhone XI Plus and iPhone 9 schematics leaked

Sketchy claim of triple-lens 2018 iPhone schematic likely based on misunderstanding

Apple iPhone X Plus and 'budget' iPhone X design and size leak in schematics - GSMArena.com news

If you ask consumers which of the expected three new Apple iPhone models they are looking forward to seeing in September, most will say that the new "Plus" handset is the one that piques their interest. The dimensions of the iPhone X Plus are slightly smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus: 157.2 x 77.1 mm (6.18 x 3.03-inches) compared to 158.4 x 78.1 mm (6.24 x 3.07-inches). The schematics in question showcase two variants of the upcoming iPhones, the iPhone X Plus and the cheaper, more budget offering that the company is planning to launch to pull more users to iPhones devices.

Moving on to the iPhone 9, (which Forbes believes will simply be called the "iPhone"), the handset is drawn with a notch but it's seemingly larger than on the iPhone XI Plus, as are the bezels, and on the back there's just a single-lens camera.

Apple is expected to launch its new range of iPhones sometime in the third quarter if all goes to plan. This could mean that the most expensive model could be priced similarly to the current iPhone X while the "budget" 6.1-inch iPhone could be priced as low as the iPhone 8.

Another factor that deems the 6.1-inch iPhone "budget" is the fact that it will lose 3D Touch - we don't expect many tears to be shed over this.

Check out the leaked schematics for the 6.5-inch and 6.1-inch 2018 iPhone models by clicking on the slideshow below. That being said, the design seems to be a direct copy of the iPhone X, complete with the notch and associated sensors for FaceID. It will likely hang out on the side of the triple camera module.

The new iPhone X Plus will allegedly feature a second generation of improved Face ID.

The analyst believed that the iPhone maker would announce and release all three 2018 iPhones in September. That's longer and wider than the current iPhone X, which measures 143.6 x 70.9 mm (5.65 x 2.79 inches).
