Alleged Apple iPhone X Plus and iPhone 9 Schematics Hits the Web

Apple will reportedly introduce the 2018 iPhone lineup in September, believed to be comprised of a 5.8-inch iPhone X sequel, a 6.1-inch LCD-toting iPhone 9, and a 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus. The purported iPhone 9 and iPhone X Plus' schematics recently surfaced on the web.

The news has remained consistent: There are three new iPhones up in Apple's pipeline having display sizes of 5.8inches, 6.1inches, and 6.5inches respectively. As a refresher, the 5.8-inch device is expected to be the direct successor to the iPhone X, the 6.1-inch LCD model is rumored to be the iPhone 9, and the biggest one of them with 6.5inches will most likely be the iPhone X Plus. The upcoming iPhones have already starred in various leaks, and now, we are looking at the newly-outed schematics of the 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch iPhones. Unfortunately, we don't have the schematics of the iPhone X sequel with a 5.8-inch screen.

Based on the images, Apple managed to cram a massive 6.5-inch OLED display into the iPhone X Plus albeit keeping its compact body measuring only 157.2 x 77.1mm, which is quite smaller than the 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus' 158.4 x 78.1mm chassis. The alleged 6.1-inch iPhone 9 will reportedly arrive with an LCD panel with no 3D Touch and measure 147.12 x 71.52mm. It is slightly longer and wider compared to the current 5.8-inch iPhone X with a body measurement of 143.6 x 70.9mm. Regardless of their display sizes, both iPhones come with screen notches, TrueDepth cameras, sensors, and speakers.

Speaking of cameras, the purported iPhone 9 will only be equipped with a single camera at the back panel. The iPhone X Plus' schematics, on the other hand, flaunts three circles in the rear camera module which suggests that it will either have a triple-camera setup similar to the HUAWEI P20 Pro or a dual-camera one with a LED flash in between like the existing iPhone X. We will surely get confirmation and additional information we need in the coming weeks and months prior to the expected September release window.
