Schematics and Renderings Depict Apple's 2018 iPhone Lineup

Amid rumors that Apple is working on three iPhones for its fall 2018 lineup, Russian site Wylsa.com has shared alleged schematics and renderings showing off the design and size difference between the three devices.

The site has two schematics, one for the 6.5-inch OLED "iPhone X Plus, which is rumored to have a dual-lens camera, and one for the lower-cost 6.1-inch iPhone, which is said to have an LCD display and a single-lens camera to keep costs low.

According to the schematics, which are from a case manufacturer, the larger iPhone measures in at 77.41mm wide, 157.53mm tall, and 7.68mm thick. The 6.1-inch iPhone measures in at 75.72mm wide, 150.91mm tall, and 8.32mm thick.

There is no schematic for the second-generation 5.8-inch OLED iPhone that will be sold alongside the two other devices, presumably because it will continue to have the same dimensions as the current iPhone X. For comparison's sake, the existing 5.8-inch iPhone measures in at 70.9mm wide, 143.6mm tall, and 7.7mm thick.

Several renderings have been created based on the schematics to give us a better picture of what the three iPhones might look like side by side (provided these numbers are accurate, of course).

These renderings do correctly depict rumored features as we've heard them so far. All three iPhones are expected to feature an edge-to-edge display with a notch and a TrueDepth camera system for Face ID, allowing Apple to eliminate the Touch ID fingerprint sensor from its iPhone lineup entirely.

The second-generation iPhone X and the iPhone X Plus, which will be Apple's more expensive flagship devices, feature OLED screens and dual-lens camera systems, while the middle-sized device has a single-lens camera and an LCD display to keep costs lower. Rumors have suggested this device could cost $700 to $800, less than the $1,000+ price tag for the OLED devices.

While the lower-cost 6.1-inch iPhone won't adopt OLED display technology, rumors have suggested it could have a better-than-average LCD, perhaps using MLCD+ display technology and a new cover glass sensor. Former KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said the switch to new technology means 3D Touch won't be included, but it's still not clear if Apple will implement it through another method.

Sucks for those of us who want the latest features in a smaller phone (that can easily be used with one hand). Give us the 4.7 screen in a smaller than iPhone 6/6s/7/8 package.

Every year, we get the same story. Someone literally just takes the existing phone, increases it's size while keeping certain things the same (like the notch), and says it's the new phone.

All I want is Touch ID back.. maybe combined with Face ID. I'm not sure how people can say that Face ID works better for them than Touch ID, but for myself, it fails me half the time, especially when I'm outside.. I spend my time getting angry at my phone watching Face ID not recognizing me and asking me for my long password.. and what irritates me the most is when I'm about done entering my password, and all of a sudden, Face ID unlocks my phone.. :mad:

Ok we get it you’re doing bigger, but can you do smaller please?

Just make it the same price as the next size up. Goes against your current pricing plan of bigger screen = more expensive but I’m sure people won’t mind, just so long as it’s an option.
