IPhone Xc 6.1-inch LCD might have a nasty surprise

According to the leaked information, the iPhone XS and XS Max will come with edge-to-edge displays with a notch on top.

The storage capacities also seem to be based on rumors. The leaked iPhone 9 page from Apple's website shows all the colour variants of the iPhone 9, out of which the confirmed variants are the Space Grey, Red, Spicy Orange and Cobalt Blue.

Apple's yearly iPhone launch is scheduled for Wednesday evening, with expectations high for not just one new smartphone but a fleet of new iPhone X-inspired phones, a new smartwatch and maybe even new iPads. All these specs for the 6.1-incher make sense because Apple is planning to position this as a more "entry-level" device, the price of which would be at par with the iPhone X's lesser co-star past year, the iPhone 8, which is now priced starting at Dh2,991.50, which is about $815. Not only will it be providing a more colorful selection on a "budget" version of a flagship iPhone, it will also be reusing that "c" suffix, which now definitely stands for "color". Geskin also confirms the phone's size - 6.1 inches - and its LCD display.

We know nearly all of the specifications of the 2018 iPhones that are being announced this week, but the names remain something of a mystery. And lastly, the 6.1-inch iPhone or iPhone XC is tipped to be priced $860, which is roughly around Rs 62,000.

To be fair, listed prices in America are still subject to sales tax - anywhere between less than 1 per cent to over 10 per cent, depending which state you're in.

If you don't mind owning an even older iPhone there's also some good deals from Amazon on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s with both of these devices now costing under £500. That goes against a recent rumor that the name would be iPhone Xs Max instead.

Apple is reportedly trying to limit the availability of the new iPhone Xr to estimate the demand for the more premium versions. Geskin first shared them earlier this week, saying they were dummy units - which we have seen several times thus far this iPhone cycle. Apple does not comment on speculation or rumours.
