It’s an exciting time for iPhone fanatics. Apple will be releasing not two, but three new iPhones for 2018 soon. These new phones will keep the same edge-to-screen design introduced with the iPhone X last year. The new range of phones will come with a wider range of features, sizes and pricing models. Whether these new phones will be called the iPhone XI, iPhone XS or iPhone X2 has yet to be determined.
Even though we’re expecting to see a few new iPhones, none of them will be complete redesigns like the iPhone X or the iPhone 6 back in 2014. Apple is calling this launch an “S year”, meaning that the phones will maintain similar design but boast new internals and features.
So, when will the iPhone 11 launch?
According to reports, we should expect to see the iPhone 11 launching on September 12th, with a tentative release date towards the end of the month. Apple tends to stick to a schedule when it comes to phone launches, so after the announcement, you can expect to be able to purchase an iPhone 11 towards the end of the month.
How much will the iPhone 11 cost?
Even though we don’t have the official pricing yet, we don’t expect it to be cheap. The iPhone X started out at $999, so we’ll likely see a similar pricing model for the iPhone 11. According to Apple, they were able to cut the production costs of the phone my 10%. So it’s possible that these savings will be passed onto customers. Not to worry though, if you’re looking to upgrade and sell your old phone, iPhone X has set a record for resale value.
What’s going to be new with the iPhone 11? What are the other new models?
For starters, we’ve heard that there will be a new high-end iPhone model (currently dubbed the D33) with a 6.5-inch diagonal display. This will be the largest iPhone by far and also one of the largest smartphones on the market. This phone will have the glass back with steel edges and dual cameras on the back.
One big difference with this phone will be the ability to view content side-by-side in apps such as Calendar and Mail. The phone will all come equipped with a better organic light-emitting diode, or perhaps an OLED screen.
Apple also plans to upgrade the current iPhone X with a 5.8-inch OLED screen of which is internally being referred to as the D32. These new phones will have improved processing speed as well as an upgraded camera. These two higher-end iPhones are expected to have dual SIM card slots as well.
There will also be a less expensive device released to replace the iPhone 8. It’s codenamed the N84 and is expected to look similar to the iPhone X, but with a 6.1-inch screen. It will also be available in multiple colors and be equipped with aluminum edges.
One thing to keep in mind is that the actual announcement has yet to happen. Apple has been known to change their model names, so it’s possible that these new phones sport new names once announced. Right now, all we can do is wait patiently.
