Apple and Samsung are ranking high in the market. They produce the latest smartphones with advanced features every year. As Samsung is going to launch its new Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S10, so to compete for this market challenge, the iPhone decided to launch its iPhone XI, iPhone X2, and iPhone XPlus.
Apple’s premium iPhone for 2018 may come in two variants. By the rumors of MySmartPrice and OnLeaks, we came to know that it will be based on iPhone with a 6.5-inch screen, while the normal-sized update a 5.8-inch OLED display size.
Everything looks the same, on the outside, down to the dual-lens camera and on the back. But we’re fully expecting Apple to give the iPhone XI some internal surprises.

2. Display & Size
More recently, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that there will be two OLED iPhones with stainless steel frames this year. We have heard another similar screen rumor, that Apple will launch OLED phones in two variants 5.8 and 6.3-inch sizes, along with a third 6.1-inch phone which will have an LCD screen and a metal back (rather than glass). They say that the 6.1-inch phone has the same features as in the iPhone X but it will have a low price rather than iPhone X.
He added that the 6.5-inch handset will have a pixel density of following specs:
Resolution: 480-500 pixels per inch (ppi), while the 5.8-inch one will apparently be 458ppi.
Dimensions: 157.2 x 77.1mm, which would make it slightly smaller than the 158.4 x 78.1mm, which is the dimension of iPhone X.
Thickness: Phone will be 0.2mm thicker, it means that it will be 158.4 x 78.1 x 7.7mm.
3. Ram and Processor
Apple will exclusively use Intel modems for 2018’s models, rather than splitting the order between Intel and Qualcomm. Finally, from Kuo, one report also claims, there will be a new type of processor for the iPhone XI. iPhone will have 4GB of RAM and a 2.49GHz hexacore chipset. Ram is same as in iPhone X but the processor is increased in this phone.
IOS will be 11.2 which is the latest version.
The iPhone X has a great camera, but we didn’t find some extra bloomy snaps, so there are ways in which it will definitely be improved. So they improved in iPhone XI. Low light performance, improved for the iPhone XI. Brighter HDR shots would be appreciated too, a pro mode for people is added this time to iPhone users.
It’s also sure to have Face ID, a new chipset (possibly called the A12, but with a new name to follow the A10 Fusion and A11 Bionic), and a dual-lens rear camera though likely one that’s improved in some way.
Front-facing ‘TrueDepth’ 3D camera.
According to KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (in October 2017), the iPhone X’s 3D rumors are already at least one year ago echoed. However, in 2019 we may see improvements to the TrueDepth Camera on the front of the iPhone (as well as a TrueDepth camera on the back of the device).
Triple camera lenses
We think this will appear in the 2019 update, as was suggested by the original rumor, but a report in June 2018 is now saying that the late-2018 iPhone X Plus will have triple camera lenses on its rear.
5. Battery & Charging
According to KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the 5.8-inch model may have a roughly 10% larger battery than the iPhone X, while the 6.5-inch model might have a battery of around 3,300/3,400mAh, which would be roughly a 25% size increase.
The new models with LCD screens will have a 2850-2950 mAh battery. This should add up to 8% more capacity than the battery in the iPhone X. In these phones, the battery will be rectangular. And the models with the OLED screens installed in iPhone X will offer an L-shaped that increase battery life 25% more.
The new models might also have a fast charger. As a separate source claims Apple will pack a fast charger in the box. We have now heard that more than once, but the latest reports suggest that you won’t be able to buy it separately – so if you want Apple’s new fast charger you might have to buy a new iPhone to get it.
If photos from Chinese site are to be believed, Apple may be planning to introduce a more powerful, 18-watt USB-C charger alongside a Lightning to USB cable. The iPad currently uses a 10-12W charger.
6. Smaller Notch and Colours
The new notch could be smaller than the notch on the current iPhone X if another leak is to be believed. In May 2018, Apple has been able to squeeze in the components the notch into a smaller space, and that could translate to a smaller notch on the 2018 iPhone XI successor.
It will be available in several colors. The analyst predicted in May 2018 that the cheaper LCD iPhone model released in autumn will launch in multiple colors including Blue, yellow and pink.
He believes Apple will offer the iPhone XI in black, white and gold. We haven’t seen a gold shade of iPhone since the iPhone SE back in 2016.
7. Release Date
We have every reason to believe that the iPhone XI will launch in early September or October, as Apple tends to stick to a schedule with its phone launched. More specifically, based on past launches, it will be announced one or two weeks into September. Apple’s phones usually arrive in stores a few weeks later. Some rumors say that it may also release on valentine day.
8. Price in U.K & U.S.A
After all, Apple priced the iPhone X starting at $999 / £999 / AU$1,579. So it is the latest model the price will be raised.
In UK pricing, £900-£1000 for the new ‘Plus’ handset, £800-£900 for the XI-successor handset, and £600-£700 for the LCD model.
In the U.S pricing, 5.8in to the iPhone XI will cost $899. The 6.5in iPhone Plus will cost $100 more. And the 6.1in LCD iPhone will cost $699 or roundabout.
