iPhone X and 2 Other iPhones Coming This Year
Screens that take up most of the front panel seems to be the trend this year. With the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 sporting near borderless displays, it is only natural for the Cupertino Company to follow suit.
iPhone 7 and 7 Plus did not have any path-breaking features that new iterations of iPhones usually have. Apple is definitely feeling the heat and that might be the reason why they brought out the red variant of iPhone 7, dubbed Product RED. But Apple is going all out to bring out the most innovative iPhone yet. There has been a lot of rumors surrounding the iPhones to be launched this year, starting from their names to all the possible features that they can have. Apple is supposedly coming out with not two, but three iPhones this fall.

This rumor has been doing the rounds for quite some time now. Like always, there’ll be the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus (or 8 and 8 Plus). But another model is also expected to arrive along with these two models and that is the anniversary edition, which may be the iPhone X. For starters, the iPhone Anniversary Edition might just be the best iPhone ever. A lot of features are in the pipeline, but it is not yet clear as to whether which of these will actually be present on the phone.
Let’s take a look at some of these alleged features of the iPhone Anniversary Edition as well as the duo of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. Apple has already made an order of 70 million OLED panels for the new iPhones. And guess who is making them? Samsung of course! Samsung is also preparing to bring out 95 million OLED panels if the demand increases.
Apart from the conventional 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variants, the iPhone Anniversary Edition will sport a 5.2-inch display. The stand-out feature will be the absence of the physical home button. Similar to the MacBook Pro, the new iPhone might have a touch-bar like component below the screen. This will also implement the fingerprint Touch ID. How are they going to implement a fingerprint scanner on a screen? We’ll have to wait for that.
The next standout feature will be the presence of a vertical dual-camera setup as well as a dual front facing cameras. The whole body of the iPhone will probably be made out of glass and they will use True Tone displays. Even though all of these are just rumors, there is substantial evidence pointing to the existence of them. This fall might see the launch of three new iPhones, the iPhone 7S (or iPhone 8), iPhone 7S Plus (or iPhone 8 Plus) and the iPhone X (iPhone Anniversary Edition). The iPhone X might take some time to get into retail stores due to lack of availability of materials and it’ll definitely be priced over $1,000.
