“The Cupertino giant is expected to launch three new iPhones this year, including a 6.1-inch model with an LCD screen”
From the past several months, we’ve been seeing a lot of leaks and reports regarding Apple’s next-gen iPhones. We have already seen a handful of alleged images of the upcoming products from the Cupertino tech giant, including some photos of the dummy units of next-gen iPhones. Today, the company sent out invites for a launch event to the media. Called “Gather round”, the brand’s upcoming event will take place at the Steve Jobs Theatre in Cupertino on September 12th.
At its “Gather round” event, Apple is expected to launch three new iPhone models. The first company to hit $1 trillion market cap is rumoured to introduce two new iPhone X (review) variants alongside an affordable 6.1-inch iPhone featuring an LCD screen. If the reports are the be believed, one of upgraded iPhone X version will feature a 5.8-inch OLED screen, while there will be a high-end variant of the same with a 6.5-inch OLED display.
It’s worth mentioning that the earlier reports have suggested that the upcoming Apple iPhones will come in a variety of unconventional colours. All upcoming iPhone trio is expected to flaunt the brand’s Face ID unlocking mechanism. The rumour mill also suggests that the 3D Touch functionality will be removed from one of the upcoming iPhones, and our best bet is that the 6.1-inch LCD model will be the one to skip it.
Notably, a recent report by CNET suggested that Qualcomm confirmed that it’s not expecting to supply modems for any of the upcoming iPhones at the moment. The chipmaker was quoted saying that the Cupertino-based company intends to solely use modems from Qualcomm’s competitors on the next-gen iPhones.
Since the launch is just around the corner, we expect the rumour mill to reveal more details about the upcoming iPhones, so stay tuned to 91mobiles for all the updates.
