Apple will also officially announce when its big software updates will become available.
iOS 12, watch OS5 and macOS Mojave were all revealed earlier in the year and these upgrades will probably be pushed out to Apple customers later next month.
Apple iPhone X 6.1-inch
Apple iPhone 6.1-inch LCD variant is expected to feature a bezel-less display with iPhone X-like notch on top. The phone will also include Face ID, though it will likely ditch the 3D Touch feature. Apple’s Xcode software hints at a DCI-P3 LCD panel, and an older A10 chipset that we saw on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The phone could feature 3GB RAM as well. Unlike the upcoming 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch OLED iPhone, the 6.1-inch model could feature single rear and front cameras.
Apple iPhone X Plus
Apple iPhone X Plus will reportedly be targeted towards business users, and it will be available in three storage capacities – 64GB, 256GB and 512GB. The RAM will be 4GB, as per the report. Apple officially does not reveal the RAM size on its phones.
Apple iPhone X Plus will continue with a dual-rear camera at the back as well as the Face ID feature, and a notch on top of the screen just like the original iPhone X. The phone is said to sport a similar glass and metal design and vertically stacked dual-rear cameras. However, iPhone X Plus bezels on the new phone could be reduced.
Finally, Forbes had shared leaked schematics of the iPhone X Plus, which reveal triple rear cameras with enhanced zoom. However, this seems unlikely, and Apple could hold this feature for its 2019 iPhone models.
Apple iPhone X 2018: Expected specifications
Apple iPhone X 2018 could feature a design similar to iPhone X. This could be the iPhone X with the least changes in terms of overall design. The display could be the same 5.8-inch OLED with a notch on top and Face ID on the front. The dual-rear cameras will be aligned vertically, as seen on the original phone. As per leaks, Apple’s upcoming phones could be powered by the company’s new A12 chip, compared to A11 Bionic chip on the iPhone 8 series and iPhone X 2017.
What else will Apple launch on September 12?
In addition to the new iPhone models, Apple is also expected to launch Watch Series 4 at the event. Apple Watch Series 4 will come with 15 per cent larger display as compared to Watch Series 3, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The new Apple Watch is expected with new sensors for health monitoring and a longer battery life as well as solid state buttons. It will ship with watchOS 5.
An entry-level MacBook Air, MacBook, Mac Mini, iPads with FaceID, AirPods 2 are also speculated to launch at the September 12 event.
