  • Apple seems to have confirmed that a larger iPhone X will be making it into the 2018 lineup of phones.
  • The latest iOS 12 Beta includes an icon which resembles a larger iPhone X which was found through reverse engineering.
  • The first-generation iPhone X was leaked in a similar fashion, which gives more credibility to the leak.

The original iPhone X was leaked via an iOS beta last year, and a similar incident has happened this time around with two new iPhone X devices just around the corner. Guilherme Rambo has managed to reverse engineer the latest Apple iOS 12 beta and spotted two new devices which resemble a bezel-less iPad and a new iPhone X which is larger than its predecessor.

The new devices are expected to be announced in the upcoming Apple conference in September. While a square iPad icon has also been spotted in the new firmware, Rambo believes that it is unlikely a square iPad will be announced and that it is simply a placeholder for all iPad devices. The new iPhone X devices are expected to come in two variants. A flagship variant to replace the previous generation device is expected along with the rumored iPhone X Plus.

The upcoming Apple phones are expected to include world’s first 7nm chips manufactured by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company. The current generation iPhone X uses a 10nm design, and we can expect a significant performance increase once the new chipsets arrive. While real-life performance will not be severely affected, app loading times are expected to go down sharply.

Other than the iPhone X, Apple is also rumored to release a new lineup of iPad Pro devices without bezels. The new iPad Pro tablets will ditch the fingerprint sensor in favor of Apple’s Face ID and also include a number of hardware improvements. A cheaper iPhone is also expected to release later this year with industry experts hinting at a November launch. The entry-level iPhone will come with an LCD panel instead of an OLED display like the more expensive phones from the company.
