New renders offer a tantalising glimpse at Apple’s 2018 iPhone lineup

Can’t want to see what Apple has planned for the iPhone in 2018? A pair of new renders have arrived, and they’re showing off the new handsets based on the latest rumours doing the rounds. 

At the moment, the consensus is that Apple is preparing to launch three new handsets at its usual iPhone launch event in the latter half of the year. There will apparently be two iPhone X-style devices sporting OLED screens, and then one cheaper device with an LCD screen.

However, interestingly all three handsets are expected to feature the same edge-to-edge screen design and display notch seen on last year’s premium iPhone X.

The renders, which have been produced by MySmartPrice in conjunction with @OnLeaks concern just two of the new handsets, the budget LCD-equipped phone and the premium large iPhone X Plus.

Let’s start with the LCD device. Not to be confused with the heavily rumoured iPhone SE 2, this device will feature a 6.1-inch LCD display (compared to the iPhone X’s 5.8-inch), complete with a screen notch. It will also drop the iPhone X’s second camera lens, and have a cheaper price tag.

Meanwhile, the iPhone X Plus is expected to have a much larger 6.5-inch screen consisting of a more premium OLED display. Rumours suggest it will maintain much of the current features of the iPhone X, such as a dual-lens camera.

The renders show both phones without fingerprint scanners, consistent with rumours that all three will utilise Face ID for security rather than Touch ID.

As these renders are fan-made and based on pre-existing rumours, they don’t offer any new details on the rumoured handsets. That said, seeing the rumours shown off visually is a great way of figuring out exactly what we know about Apple’s upcoming plans.

Apple usually announces its upcoming iPhone’s at an event in September, but we’ll have our eyes peeled for any hints about its upcoming plans at WWDC 2018.
