  • Apple to launch the largest iPhone ever

The biggest iPhone ever will reportedly feature a screen size of 6.5 inches with the edge-to-edge design used in the iPhone X. Factory leaks over the past day have shown what purport to be front glass and screen assemblies for the new phone, suggesting a notch roughly the same size as the iPhone X's centered at the top of a much larger display.

The people said both these phones are expected to use next-generation A12 processors and will continue to include stainless steel edges and will be Apple's high-end smartphone offerings.

An iPhone X is seen on a large video screen in the new Apple Visitor Center in Cupertino, California, U.S., November 17, 2017.

According to the report, the smartphones will also come with an upgraded version of the existing iPhone X but it would be less expensive.

Finally, the most drastic new iPhone X would feature a bigger body (oh boy) about the size of the iPhone 8 Plus. The images, seen below, show a phone with a 6.5-inch display, with edge-to-edge screen design. Reports have said that Apple is investing billions of dollars to help LG expand its OLED production line, giving Apple more flexibility in the future when it needs to source parts.




According to the report, Apple is targeting business users with the massive phablet-style device that'd likely be more of a rival to the Note 9 than the Galaxy S9.

Apple is set to release this year the larger iPhone X Plus, allegedly codenamed D33. Apparently, a cheaper version of the iPhone X is going to be released too with all the features intact. A dual-SIM capability would provide a compromise.

The new iPhone models will all, of course, come with the latest operating system in the form of iOS 12 which is expected to bring augmented reality support, deeper Siri integration and digital health monitoring. With the eSIM tech, smartphones can connect to the cellular data networks without inserting a traditional SIM card.

To keep costs down, the cheaper phone will use LCD screen technology similar to the type employed in the iPhone 8. Apple only sells the premium flagship in Silver and Space Gray, while the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus both have Gold in addition to the other two colors.
