The next-gen iPhone models are rumoured to come with a tri-lens setup which will help to enable AR features on future iPhones.
On the positive side, the new iPhones will boast significantly bigger, edge-to-edge screens. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. will remain sole supplier of the main processor for the new iPhones, while primary iPhone camera lens supplier Largan Precision Co.is expected to see sales rise with the launch of new Apple phones.
Further, Kuo indicated that Apple will also inaugurate the launch of third iPhone showing off 6.1-inch LCD display that too at a lower price than the OLED models.
But there will still be changes in the iPhone lineup, including a larger version of the iPhone X dubbed the XS, and a new less-expensive iPhone that has numerous features associated with the iPhone X. Expect to see the new iPhones introduced during the second week of September, probably on Sept. 12. According to the latest reports, Apple Watch 3 with LTE connectivity is the most popular smartwatch out there. Apple is also likely to pack Face ID along with all its models this year. Apple is expected to continue selling the older iPhone 7 and 8 phones, which still do have the home button.
The "Plus" size will reportedly have a 6.46-inch screen and will be sold alongside a smaller 5.85-inch model in a bid to compete with Samsung's Galaxy Note. This will be an upgrade to iPhone 8, but the design will be inspired from iPhone X with notch and gesture-based navigation.
The updated iPhone X could be considered as an "S upgrade" with a better system-on-a-chip and better cameras.
We're also hoping to see an entry-level iPhone with a cheaper LED screen.
Other devices that Apple could release as soon as next month include new Apple Watches and a new version of AirPods, the company's wireless earbuds. As of now, there are no reports on the name, since there's a confusion between iPhone X Plus and iPhone Xs Plus. This year's lower-cost iPhone will use aluminum edges, retaining a premium feel.
Keeping with earlier rumors, Apple is expected to introduce dual SIM technology for the two larger phones in some regions, Bloomberg noted.
MacWorld has made some projections on what to expect from the next iPhone CPU. Touch ID may also be incorporated with the power button.
