New social media posts have emerged online from both state-owned telecommunication companies are generating some hype for a rumored dual-SIM support for the new 2018 iPhones. While much of the world will still be surprised when Apple shows off its new iPhone models on stage at the Steve Jobs Theater later this week, those of us who track all the leaks each year know just about everything there is to know.
The 2018 version of the tablet has been widely rumoured to take from the iPhone X by radically reducing bezels, introducing Face ID as a method of unlocking the device and removing the headphone jack. Shipments and in-store pickup are expected to be available on September 21st.
This year, the iPhone event takes place at 10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET on September 12.
A large chunk of Wednesday's proceedings will nearly surely focus on three expected additions to the iPhone line, Apple's most important and one that accounted for 56% of its $53.3 billion in third-quarter revenue for the three months ending June 30. New pictures that surfaced on Twitter purportedly show the new iPhone in 4 shades and reveal a name: iPhone Xc.More news: Green Bay QB Rodgers working out with rehabbing players
A separate, but connected to the new iPhones, a report has hinted that Apple may call the iPhone with 6.1-inch the iPhone XR. Cupertino is expected to kick off a season of what seems to be two of the best months of the industry if you are a fan of new hardware unveilings.
So putting together all the available information, what we might be looking at is iPhone Xs, Xr and big screen Xs Max or Plus.
It is expected that the cheaper, 6.1 inch LCD iPhone XC will be launched exclusively in India and China.
The new round of tariffs on imports from China, proposed by President Donald Trump, will provide a backdrop to the event but won't affect the new iPhone, Munster says.
