New leak reveals glass panels of Apple’s 2018 iPhone lineup

Sources indicate that Apple plans to unveil three new models for its 2018 iPhone line-up. All three models will sport the edge-to-edge screen design introduced with the iPhone X, along with a notch on top for FaceID. Now, a new leak comes via tipster Benjamin Geskin that claims to show the front glass panels of all three upcoming iPhone models.

Going by the leak, it appears there will be subtle differences between the OLED models and the rumoured low-cost LCD model. To begin with, the 5.8-inch iPhone model will be heavily inspired by the current iPhone X, with similar bezels along with a notch on top. Meanwhile, the plus sized iPhone X model with a 6.5-inch OLED screen appears to be a giant-sized iPhone X, with similar bezels and notch as its smaller variant.

That being said, the rumoured low-cost LCD model appears to have a slightly bigger notch and seemingly thicker bezels around the edges compared to the OLED models. Besides, this new leak also falls in line with earlier rumours that tipped that Apple’s 2018 iPhone line-up will feature an edge to edge design like the iPhone X, and come equipped with FaceID. Rumour has it that Apple plans to ditch fingerprint sensors in favour of facial recognition starting with this year’s iPhone range.

Readers, however, are advised to take this information with a pinch of salt as nothing is official at the moment.

In other related news, reliable analyst Ming Chi Kuo has indicated that Apple might offer its 2018 iPhone line-up in multiple new colour variants. According to him, the 6.5-inch OLED model will come in black, white, along with a new gold colour. The rumoured 6.1-inch model, on the other hand, will be offered in grey, white, blue, red, as well as an orange colour variant.
