We heard about the launch of iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, way ahead of its launch last December, and how, here we are, hearing about the rumours shaping up for new iPhones in 2018. If what we hear is to be believed, Apple has three new iPhones in line-up for 2018.

There were days when Apple secrets used to be secrets and they created the tight-lipped mysterious aura before the launch of their products. But gone are those days and Apple rumours have gotten much more accurate and precise. The latest Apple prediction from KGI Security analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is that the tech-giant is about to launch not one, not two but three new iPhones this September. Up in the line-up for 2018 are three new Apple phones: a big one, a cheap one and one with three rear cameras like the Huawei P20 pro and they are likely to be called iPhone 9, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Plus – which could also be called iPhone X2 and iPhone X Plus.

The iPhone 11 and 11 Plus or iPhone X2 and iPhone X Plus will sport 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED displays, respectively and the souped-up cameras, processor, a new kind of charging port and the signature facial recognition feature of X. On the other hand, the iPhone 9 would be the cheapest launch from Apple to sum up this year’s launch and perhaps, it will bear the good ol’ fingerprint sensors instead of fancy FaceID. The two high-end phones would cost something around $999 – following the footprints of their predecessor; whereas, iPhone 9 is expected to have a starting price of around $699 to $749.

It is also said that Apple’s 2018 iPhone line-up could bring many colours with silver, space grey, and gold, while the 6.1-inch iPhone could come in grey, white, blue, red, and orange. There’s a lot lined up for Apple this year, including iOS 12 and Mr Ming-Chi Kuo is a reliable source as he has predicted the launches of iPhone earlier, and they turned out to be true. Perhaps, the launch date would be September 12 this year, or September 15, or 22nd; but we will have to wait until official launch, of course.
