Apple’s iPhone X Plus will pack a high resolution display and offer dual SIM tech when it launches later this year.
That’s the word from Bloomberg, citing ‘people familiar with the products’. It claims that the new, larger take on the iPhone X will pack a 6.5–inch OLED screen with a 1242 x 2688 resolution.
Can't wait for this 2018's iPhones? Take a look at our review of the current iPhone X.
The decision to include dual SIM tech, allowing users to switch between work and personal numbers seamlessly, comes after Apple was apparently frustrated in its attempts to use an E-SIM, with networks resistant to the idea.
E-SIMs allow smartphone owners to switch providers without having to get a new card from their carrier.
The sources also say that Apple could offer the iPhone X Plus in gold, as it looks to entice upgrading customers.
The same report backs up previous chat from analysts that Apple is plotting a three–pronged approach to its new iPhone X lineup.
A 5.8–inch model with an OLED display and a cheaper, 6.1–inch edition with LCD screen will complete the range.
Bloomberg says that all three versions will include Face ID.
The pricier OLED phones will have a stainless steel rim, while the cheaper LCD model will use aluminium. The sources say that following slower than expected sales of the iPhone X, Apple is hoping that it can bring in new customers by varying its offer.
The three new iPhones are not expected to launch until September 2018.
Updates to the iPhone X aren't all Apple has planned for 2018. We take a look at what else to expect this year.
