The Apple iPhone X is so 2017; rumors swirl about possible 2018 models

Following the rollout of the Apple iPhone X a short time ago, it’s fair to say the newest iPhone signals a clear change in direction for Cupertino, so the question now is, what’s next? The clues and rumors are beginning to pile up, and the rumor mill got a significant dollop of grist recently with a report on the Nikkei Asian Review site that claims more and bigger OLED iPhones are on the way, as anyone would have logically suspected.

But details are beginning to emerge about the new iPhones, including some from the mysterious Ming Chi Ko, perhaps the most accurate Apple prognosticator. According to a post on BGR, Ko says Apple may eventually debut perhaps two even larger versions of the iPhone X, perhaps including one called the X (Ten) Plus, which might have a 6.5-inch screen with close to 500 dots per inch – that’s extremely high resolution – and would be great for VR and AR.

Other rumors suggest the X Plus could be 6.3 inches instead. The third bit is that an iPhone X-like phone with a lower-cost LCD screen is also in the works. And fans of the home button needn’t worry: the iPhone 8 will likely soldier on for a while longer – probably with a standard “S” update – and the throwback SE will also remain in the line-up, with perhaps a slight refresh as well. Again, it’s all rumors for now, but 2018 is coming up quick.
