Apple to release 2018 iPhone with massive 6.5-inch display – and it will be available in gold

Apple's Short Interest Rises 7 Million Shares, but Does It Matter?

Apple is planning to launch its biggest iPhone yet this year.

A new report from Bloomberg adds weight to previous rumours of a 6.46-inch iPhone leading the way, by far the largest device in the history of the range.

Similar to the Plus releases of past years, the iPhone X is reportedly getting a size upgrade with a screen that could measure up to 6.5 inches - a 0.7 inch difference from the current iPhone X's 5.8 inches.

The first image, which can be seen above, supposedly shows the display digitizer from Apple's upcoming 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus. This model will also include Face ID. However, they also suggest that while the device will resemble the iPhone X it will cost "just" $699. (Gurman doesn't specifically mention that Apple will use the "iPhone X Plus" moniker.) It will also have stainless steel sides and maybe a new gold colour option. With the new plans, Apple plans to lure back iPhone users with a lineup that offers a model for every taste. Some consumers were turned off by the iPhone X's $1,000 price despite liking the design even as they wanted something more cutting-edge than the cheaper iPhone 8.

Apple also plans to use OLED screen technology - which gives the iPhone X better resolution on lower battery consumption - and to include facial recognition technology known as Face ID, Bloomberg reported.

Modi symbolically handed over the keys and registration certificates of two wheelers to five women on the occasion, reports PTI. Last month, the state government increased the subsidy component under the scheme from Rs 20,000 to Rs 25,000.

Aside from a dual-SIM, the sources also said there could be a gold option, being perceived as a popular offering in Asia, for the updated iPhone X, and for the larger iPhone X Plus. A final decision on whether to include the feature or wait for eSIM technology hasn't been made.

It is considering releasing a dual-SIM variant as well. The new, affordable devices will feature the edge-to-edge screen seen on the iPhone X in order to give the device a more modern feel.

Apple launched the high-end $999 (£999) iPhone X last September.

Like the Plus versions of the iPhone 6, 7, and 8, this phone will "probably" be capable of split-screen modes for certain apps, says the report. This design will allegedly work because of the edge-to-edge design being used.
