Despite the bigger size, the screen will have a resolution of 1242 x 2688, making it as sharp as the one on the 5.8-inch iPhone X. It will also use OLED technology, just like the screen on an iPhone X.
The new large iPhone and the updated iPhone X are expected to feature new A12 processors.
According to a new report, three new iPhones will launch in 2018, all derived from the design and features of the iPhone X.
Like certain iPads, Apple is also apparently considering a two-SIM option for the Plus "in at least some regions", nearly certainly utilizing an embedded chip called an eSIM alongside a removable nano-SIM as a compromise to placate eSIM-resistant cellular carriers. This year, Apple will reportedly add some flare to its recycled iPhone X design by mixing in at least one new color, and an image of the 2018 iPhone X successor in that new color might've leaked for the first time yesterday.
According to Bloomberg, the bigger iPhone could sport a 6.5-inch screen, larger than the 6.2-inch of the Galaxy S9 Plus which was unveiled on Monday in Barcelona, Spain. Though it's nowhere cheap, yet it is $200-$300 below the iPhone X. Kuo notes that the screen size would be 6.1 inches. They are expected to be announced this fall, although sources said these plans could still change.More news: McMaster could leave WH after months of tension with Trump
Apple has not yet released a dual-SIM iPhone, but if ever, these devices would most probably be available in Europe and Asia, especially among business people who usually visit different countries.
Apple is set to release this year the larger iPhone X Plus, allegedly codenamed D33. This is said to support new augmented reality features, enhanced Siri integration, health and fitness monitoring, and the use of Animojis in FaceTime.
Apple hasn't made a final decision on including the feature and could choose to wait for E-SIM technology, which will connect phones to multiple networks without the need for a removable chip.
Longtime Apple watchers will be skeptical, in part because Apple already has a giant iPhone, the iPad, and in part because we've been here before in the Apple rumor mill cycle. The OLED screen will be replaced with an LCD version, saving on costs all the way around.
