  • 6 gadgets Apple may launch on September 12

Three days from now, the world - especially Apple die-hards - will be treated to the next batch of iPhones.

Apart from the color options, we can also see that the LCD iPhone will feature an aluminum frame instead of stainless steel which is found on the high-end iPhone X. Other details suggest the device will house a single lens camera set up at the back.

Along with a giant display, this phone could also get a new name with a recent leak revealing Apple may ditch the usual Plus branding in favour of calling the Max.

In his note, Kuo also expects Apple to launch a 512GB variant of the iPhone Xs series.

Apple's 2018 iPhone lineup is expected to witness an unveiling at the company's Steve Jobs Theater in California at a special event slated for September 12.

Two of those phones are believed to be by-the-book updates of the current iPhone X and will be called the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max.

According to the leaked information, the iPhone XS and XS Max will come with edge-to-edge displays with a notch on top.

ICC says can rule on Rohingya deportations from Myanmar
A special United Nations commission on Monday recommended prosecuting senior Myanmar military officers for suspected genocide. While Myanmar has not signed the statute underpinning the tribunal, Bangladesh is a signatory.

And most importantly, the China Mobile presentation indicates that the 6.1-inch model will be dubbed the iPhone XC.

As Ars Technica suggests, it seems exceedingly likely that the event hosted by the tech titan on September 12 will focus nearly exclusively on the iPhone and Apple Watch consumer categories and all of the product lines contained within.

The China Mobile leak lists the price for the iPhone XS Plus at 8388 yuan, which is exactly what the carrier charges for the iPhone X. This suggests that the US price for the XS Plus will be the same as the iPhone X: $999. The iPhone XS Plus with 6.5-inch display will be priced $1225, which roughly translates to Rs 88,000.

To be fair, listed prices in America are still subject to sales tax - anywhere between less than 1 per cent to over 10 per cent, depending which state you're in. This is not the Chinese cost of the iPhone 8 Plus.

However, noted Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo had gone ahead to say that Apple iPhones in 2018 will not come with Pencil support.

On the iPhone Xs Plus, TrendForce had noted that the 6.5-inch iPhone could be targeted for business consumers, which could be another reason why Apple might just add a stylus support. The 5.8-inch OLED option is said to be named "iPhone Xs" (that's "10 s"), while the 6.1-inch LED model's monicker remains unclear; it could be the "iPhone 9" to make up for continuity, or something else. Like last year, Apple is not expected to include Touch ID on this year's iPhones as well.
